The Camp Fire destroyed nearly everything in its path that day in November, 2018 including most of the town’s hospital. Adventist Health is now scattered throughout the county. For months staff of its previous cancer center have had to drive hours to visit patients who have been displaced. But now, they’ll be able to see those patients in Chico, as a new Adventist Health Cancer Care Center has just opened.
NSPR’s Sarah Bohannon spoke with oncologist and hematologist Dr. Sam Mazj who is leading the new facility. He says it’s been up and running for about two weeks.
The center is holding a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4 p.m., Tuesday, April 9. It will be located at the new center, 95 Declaration Drive, Suite 1.
