LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A $1.3 million expansion of the CHI Saint Joseph Health is expanding access to cancer care in Nelson County.

A virtual ribbon cutting took place on Monday to show off the completion of the upgrades to the Cancer Care Center at Flaget Memorial Hospital.

The facility has undergone improvements for the past three years as part of Project Hope.

The latest addition includes infusion rooms, a resource center and pharmacy. A 3D mammography was installed in 2018.

The new services will benefit hundreds of cancer patients each year from Nelson, Hardin, Marion, Washington, Spencer, Bullitt and LaRue counties, and surrounding communities.
