Illinois CancerCare expanding
PEORIA, Ill. — Dr. Francois Geoffroy is looking forward to next year at this time. That’s when a 20,000 square foot expansion of Illinois CancerCare is expected to be completed.
Located in north Peoria on Route 91, the facility treats roughly 10,000 patients each year, a number that’s rapidly growing.
“I think well over 3,000 new patients per year,” said Dr. Geoffroy, “and we anticipate that number will grow by probably 20 to 25 percent by the year 2020.”
The project will include expanded research facilities and administrative offices, as well as renovations to a large portion of the existing structure. The current entrance will be widened for easier patient access.
