TIFFIN Mercy Health Partners plans to open a new radiation therapy center in Tiffin next week.
Bishop Leonard Blair of the Catholic Diocese of Toledo will lead a blessing and dedication ceremony during an open house scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the center, 40 Fair Ave.
Dale Thornton, chief executive officer of Tiffin Mercy Hospital, said officials are studying the possibility of adding an oncology center at the facility.
In the meantime, the board of Tiffin Mercy Hospital has authorized Mr. Thornton and his staff to begin planning a new hospital campus at an estimated cost of $50 million to $70 million.
One possible site is a 76-acre parcel the hospital recently optioned near U.S. 224 and State Rt. 18.
