Construction crews broke ground last week for a new cancer treatment center and surgical pavilion at the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham. The new facility is expected to open in summer 2014, according to an announcement by the hospital. Officials said the new surgical area will allow area residents to receive advanced surgeries closer to home. “This will be a very patient-centered facility,” said the hospital’s president and chief executive officer, John Fogarty. The three-story, 30,000-square-foot building is being constructed on the footprint of the hospital’s former administration building. A new parking area is being built as well.
