OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group opens new cancer clinic

5/16/2024 - Escanaba, Michigan

The new OSF HealthCare Daniel J. Kobasic Cancer Clinic will welcome its first  patients starting May 20. 

The new clinic, located at OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group, offers expanded oncology and hematology services for current and future patient care needs. The clinic features additional space for a larger arrival and waiting area, enhanced patient care areas including five examination rooms and 10 infusion bays with windows and iPads, nurse navigator services and on-site support services. OSF relocated oncology services from its current location within the OSF Medical Office Building to a larger, separate building on the hospital campus. 

In 2022, OSF St. Francis was awarded $1.5 million in federal funds through a government funding bill that U.S. Senator Gary Peters helped pass into law. Through Senator Peters’ support, this funding became the basis for the project, allowing the OSF HealthCare Foundation to move forward with a capital fundraising campaign in which a gift of $1 million was made by the Daniel J. Kobasic Foundation. 

“We are thrilled that this day has finally arrived,” says Kelly Jefferson, president of OSF St. Francis. “We are truly grateful to Senator Peters, the Daniel J. Kobasic Foundation and the many donors for their commitment to Delta County and the patients we serve. This beautiful facility will serve our community for many years to come.” 

Oncology services at OSF St. Francis are provided through a collaboration between OSF and Green Bay Oncology, a relationship that has served the local community since 1994.
