Sinai Hospital held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday afternoon for a new, 125,000-square-foot cancer treatment facility at its North Baltimore campus.
The facility, located on Greenspring Avenue, will include several treatment and exam rooms, centralizing the hospital’s oncology services, according to a news release. Sinai Hospital is part of the LifeBridge Health system.
The building will be named for Mandy and Dennis Weinman, who donated $5 million toward construction costs, the release said. Dennis Weinman, president of the Pikesville-based real estate firm Weinman Company, is also a board member of LifeBridge Health.
From the third floor of the building, cancer patients will be able to look out at Cylburn Arboretum as they receive infusion treatment, the release said.
“We are so grateful to Mandy and Dennis for their wonderful gift that will make such a difference for people receiving cancer care at Sinai,” Julie Cox, the chief development officer for LifeBridge Health, said in a statement. “They share the vision of LifeBridge Health and our leading cancer experts on how we can provide high-level care with compassion and comfort for the 30,000 people battling cancer we treat each year.”
LifeBridge Health is a nonprofit. In addition to Sinai Hospital, the health care system operates hospitals in West Baltimore, Randallstown and Westminster as well as more than 30 clinics throughout the state.
