COLUMBIA — Ellis Fischel Cancer Center will host an open house Tuesday to allow the public to tour its new home at University Hospital's newly built tower.

Attendees will be able to tour the tower from 4 to 6 p.m. at 1 Hospital Drive. 

Ellis Fischel, which was previously located at 115 Business Loop 70 W., will occupy the first two floors of the tower. The 100,000-square-foot space will include 50 clinic rooms, a rehabilitation gym and an outdoor patio and garden.

The new center will be equipped to perform 3-D mammography and better breast MRI imaging.

The official grand opening is scheduled for March 25, when the hospital will start seeing patients. 

Supervising editor is Simina Mistreanu.
