Allina launches new cancer institute

Minneapolis-based Allina Health System has invested $50 million to launch the Allina Health Cancer Institute, the Star Tribune reported Oct. 28. 

The facility will allow the health system to bring more cancer services in-house to streamline care and help oncology patients avoid emergency room visits with programs, such as after-hours symptom management. 

To launch the institute, Allina has hired 15 oncologists and expanded or renovated space at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis and Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids, Minn., over the past 18 months. At United Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., the health system opened a "revamped" center for radiation oncology treatments.
