A Landmark For Health Care And Research In Fairfax County Opens May 13

The Inova Schar Cancer Institute will be open for patients on May 13 on its Merrifield campus. This will usher in a new level of patient care and medical treatment in Fairfax County.

According to Reston Connection, “The Schar Cancer Center raises the already-high level of health-care facilities in Fairfax County,” said Catherine W. Riley, interim president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “As part of the Inova Center for Personalized Health, it can make Fairfax County a destination for world-class research and clinical work.”

Dedication ceremonies for the center were held on Wednesday, 24 April. The center has cost $150 million and is built for care and research purposes for cancer patients. A former Exxon Mobil site was acquired for this purpose. The largest contribution in the construction of the institute was made by  Dwight Schar and wife Martha, who donated $50 million.
