The components of the center, distributed between two buildings, will include an array of cutting edge technologies in cancer diagnosis (modalities included are PET scanners, linear accelerators, CT scanners, nuclear medicine, bone density, x-ray, and MRI) and treatment. Highlights of the complex are the dedicated breast cancer treatment center and a cancer treatment center for other types of disease. Other components include chemotherapy treatment, clinical trials and research center, patient education, conference and training, physical therapy, spa services, and alternative medicines. Finally, the complex also includes a medical office building.
