Construction on the Upstate Cancer Research Center at University Hospital in Syracuse is rapidly taking shape.
The center will have a variety of medical services in a centralized location. Many services are already being offered, like a specialized psychologist, who works to help the emotional and psychological needs that cancer patients and families deal with, and an integrated medicine specialist, who advises patients on non-traditional therapies they may wish to add to their traditional treatment methods.
