New Upstate cancer center coming to Verona
BY KEVIN MORROW
The Upstate Cancer Center will expand its reach with a comprehensive cancer care center in Verona, bringing cancer care closer to home for residents of Madison and Oneida counties.
The new, 30,000-square-foot facility will provide expanded diagnostic and treatment services in a convenient location just off Exit 33 of the New York State Thruway. Upstate’s existing cancer center on Seneca Street in Oneida, about 15 minutes away, will relocate to Verona next year.
The Upstate Cancer Center at Verona will offer medical oncology, radiation therapy, radiology, laboratory, pharmacy and consultative services similar to those found at the Upstate Cancer Center — without the need to travel to downtown Syracuse.
Whether in Syracuse, Oswego, Oneida or Verona, Upstate patients have access to the latest cancer-fighting technology and clinical trials not available anywhere else in the region.
The Verona site will continue Upstate’s tradition of offering multidisciplinary care with a team of experts that includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and other specialists who consult together to manage each patient’s specific treatment.
The Upstate Cancer Center at Verona is expected to open in October 2022.
