Bringing world-class cancer care to southern Pennsylvania

WellSpan Health, York Cancer Center, York, PA

The WellSpan Cancer Center provides a single destination for cancer outpatient services, a first for WellSpan and the York region. Lacking consistency between previous cancer care locations, this cancer center brings together radiation oncology, infusion, clinical care and other wellness services all under one WellSpan roof.

Focused on improved patient experiences and outcomes this three-story, 65,000 sf facility consolidates WellSpan’s cancer care services for the York and surrounding townships at the Apple Hill Medical Campus. Creating a warm, inviting space that creates patient trust and facilitates the best possible cancer care for the community was integral. The local landscape is woven into the interior design, and much of the clinical and infusion spaces have views to surrounding farmland and apple orchards. Infusion rooms also have space for loved ones to accompany patients along with varying levels of privacy. The new facility has direct connection to the existing radiation oncology program which is also renovated as part of the project. The new building houses multi-specialty clinics, a related compounding pharmacy, meditation room, café and other amenities all designed to provide patient resources and treatment across the entire cancer care continuum. ­

Clinicians of all specialties, as well as researchers, are under one roof for the first time, signaling a culture change for WellSpan but also giving patients a breadth of physical, emotional and spiritual resources, including clinical trials, all in one location without having to travel to a major city hours away.
