Simon Center opens at New Jersey-based Overlook Hospital

Newark Star-Ledger, November 17, 2008
Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ, has opened the new Carol G. Simon Cancer Center. The two-story, 26,000-square foot building is an extension off the main hospital, where the number of patients diagnosed or treated for cancer has increased 46% since 1999, according to hospital officials. With nearly 43,000 cancer patient visits annually, the hospital had to expand to meet the increasing patient volume, along with all the expanding programs and services, said center medical director Daniel Moriarty.
