The “topping off” ceremony marks the installment of the final steel beam, celebrating the completion of the steel construction phase. The last steel beam was painted white and Geisinger employees and patients signed their names and left messages of hope that will remain a permanent part of Geisinger history.

Among those signing the beam were Mr. and Mrs. Frank M. Henry, the namesakes of The Henry Cancer Center.

Dr. Mohammed Mohiuddin, MD, Medical Director, Geisinger Fox Chase cancer program at The Henry Cancer Center says, “The expansion of The Henry Cancer Center will allow Geisinger Wyoming Valley the opportunity to provide enhanced cancer care for the patients of our region. I am pleased that construction is moving smoothly so that we will be able to offer enhanced cancer services as soon as possible.”

Started in October 2007, the $15 million expansion project is expected to open early Spring 2009.
