One-stop, world-class cancer treatment close to home is now a reality for Gulf South residents and beyond. The Slidell Memorial Hospital Regional Cancer Center centralizes all cancer treatment and support services in a new state-of-the-art facility.
The hospital received a AA rating from Standard and Poors (S&P) and A+ rating from Fitch for its General Obligation Bonds, Series 2009 in the amount of $17,500,000 for construction of the Cancer Center. Due to the "strong financial performance" of the hospital, as noted by S&P in its credit report, these excellent ratings in addition to G.O. Zone bond classification will save the taxpayers more than $4 million on the project.
AE Design of Marietta, Ga., an architectural firm that specializes in oncology and diagnostic imaging facilities, was selected to design the 50,000 square-foot, three-story facility. Citadel Builders of Metairie, La., was the General Contractor for the project.
All doctors working in the center are focused on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and related diseases, allowing for increased collaboration and coordination of care.
