GCMC planning to build oncology center

In spring 2020, Guthrie Cortland Hospital plans to begin construction on a new oncology center, according to Catherine Cramer, manager of corporate communications for Guthrie.

No further details — regarding size, projected cost or estimated opening date — were offered, other than that Guthrie officials are “in the process of finalizing our plans,” Lisa Grazul, Guthrie’s vice president of operations and oncology services, said in a statement.

Cortland currently has one facility that provides oncology services — Radiation Oncology Services in Cortlandville run by Dr. Michael Fallon. Fallon, who did not return a phone message seeking comment, has previously expressed concern that a new oncology center could negatively affect his business.
