A new facility for cancer patients is coming to Canton and the funding is complete.

“Each gift and every dollar helped us reach this goal, and we are so grateful to the wonderful members of our community for their generosity and compassion for cancer patients,” Rick Haines said in a prepared statement. “Cancer touches everyone’s life in some way, and the Timken Family Cancer Center will transform cancer care in our community.”

Haines, the president and CEO of the Aultman Health Foundation, says a majority of the money came from the Aultman Health Foundation ($10 million), The Women’s Board of Aultman raised $5 million, and the Timken Foundation, who has naming rights, contributed $3 million.

Individual donors, foundations and business donated the final $10 million.

The Timken Cancer Center, which came under construction in May of this year, will be approximately 58,000 square feet; 13,270 square feet of existing space and a new 45,000-square-foot addition south of Aultman’s existing buildings.

Aultman says the center will improve the hospitals clinical care and patient experience.

The target date for opening is summer of 2022.
