Duke University Health System seeks millions to expand facilities

Raleigh News & Observer, November 25, 2008

Duke University Health System is seeking approval from North Carolina regulators for a $235 million expansion to its cancer treatment and research facilities. The proposal includes building a 265,000 square-foot cancer center next to the existing Morris Cancer Clinic, which would be renovated. Duke officials said that the expansion is necessary to handle increasing demand for cancer care as the region's population grows and treatment improves. The project requires approval from the state's Certificate of Need office.
