Parkview Cancer Center Coming to Fort Wayne

Parkview Health in Fort Wayne has announced plans for an $80 million cancer center on an existing campus in the city.
The plan was announced Wednesday. Groundbreaking for the facility on the Parkview Regional Medical Center campus is scheduled for later this year, and the center's completion is expected by the end of 2017.
The Fort Wayne-based health care system said it has seen a significant increase in the number of cancer patients needing treatment in the area.
President and CEO Mike Packnett says the system wants to be the best regional cancer institute.
