TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Baylor Scott & White's Glenda Tanner Vasicek Cancer Treatment Center in Temple announced plans for a new radiation oncology facility Wednesday.

The two-story, 27,000-square-foot building adjacent to the center, with the capability of treating 70 patients a day, should be completed by summer 2021.

"This new facility will greatly improve the overall patient experience and allow us to provide more high-level procedures," said Dr. Niloyjyoti Deb, chairman, radiation oncology at Baylor Scott & White.

"Many of these procedures can be performed in the new specialty rooms, decreasing the wait time for patients.”
