St. Vincent's Health System held the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Bruno Cancer Center on Thursday.

The new center, slated to be open in 2014, will replace the current Bruno Cancer center and will be housed in a 70,000 square-foot, four-story freestanding professional office building. It will be located on the St. Vincent's Birmingham campus, and will include features for improved comfort, convenience, easy access and privacy.

"At St. Vincent's, our patients are at the heart of all our work," says STVHS President and Chief Executive Officer, John O'Neil. "We are excited that this new space will allow for improved comfort, added convenience, easier access and enhanced privacy for our patients.  This space will further our ability to provide state-of-the-art care, which is our passion and priority."

The facility will also house the Varian TrueBeam STx, the latest in radiation technology that enables several radiotherapy treatment options with pinpoint accuracy and precision.

The building was designed by Kahn South and FKP Architects and will be constructed by Brasfield & Gorrie. It will be developed by Johnson Development.
