NorthBay Healthcare opens $58M cancer, wellness center

The official grand opening of the NorthBay Healthcare VacaValley Wellness Center and dedication of the newly relocated NorthBay Cancer Center on Friday, Aug. 26, introduced a $58 million facility on the new Vacaville hospital campus.

“This is a long-awaited day for all of us at NorthBay Healthcare, for the city of Vacaville, and surely for many of our patients, physicians, nurses, support staff, managers and our Boards of Directors,” said President and CEO Gary Passama. “Today we celebrate a unique collection of advanced medical services and preventive care programs designed to not just heal you in poor health, but to maintain and manage you in good health.”

NorthBay Cancer Center opened in 1987 on the NorthBay Medical Center campus in Fairfield. In its new location in Vacaville, Radiation Oncology offers radiation therapy treatment through a $3 million TrueBeam Linear Accelerator, which provides fast and precise image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery.

Medical Oncology will offer patients chemotherapy, blood transfusions, intravenous fluid and drug therapies, therapeutic phlebotomies and central line management. In addition, the NorthBay Cancer Center physicians now work with Mayo Clinic experts through the Mayo Clinic Care Network for second opinions on patient treatment plans, thanks to a collaborative relationship announced earlier this year.

The three-story, 110,000-square-foot building also includes medical offices for NorthBay Cancer Center and Solano Diagnostics Imaging, with a state-of-the-art PET/CT imaging system as well as diabetes and endocrinology, integrative medicine, rehabilitation services and
cardiac rehabilitation.

The west end of the building is dedicated to the county’s first medical fitness center, NorthBay HealthSpring Fitness, which opened to the public in July.

“How we construct these buildings is all about changing the way we deliver care to our patients,” said Elnora Cameron, president of NorthBay Health Advantage and vice president of Strategic Development. “It’s about giving patients an experience we’ve all been waiting for in healthcare: less waiting, promptly returned phone calls, expedited pharmacy refills and lots of comforting and healing sunlight in the public spaces and in the clinical treatment areas.”

The building is a partnership between NexCore Group and NorthBay Healthcare. Architect for the project was Smith Group JJR of San Francisco. Swinerton Builders of Sacramento is the general contractor.
