Moffitt Cancer Center is acquiring 9 acres in south Hillsborough County to make cancer care accessible to thousands more patients.
Moffitt plans to build a new outpatient facility at the southeast intersection of East College Avenue and 27th Street South in Ruskin, less than a mile from Interstate 75.
By November, Moffitt expects to complete the purchase of land and have it rezoned, with final approval expected by the end of the year.
Moffitt plans to build a 75,000-square-foot facility with construction starting in early 2023 and completion by late 2024. Services offered will include screening and diagnostics, advanced imaging, clinical lab services, blood draw, biopsies, medical oncology, radiation oncology, infusion, pharmacy and clinical trials.
