Kingsport Hematology Oncology moved earlier this month from the Holston Valley Outpatient Center to the former BAE Systems administration building at the entrance of Holston Army Ammunition Plant on property owned by the Army. The replacement facility has provided Kingsport Hematology Oncology with much-needed additional space that has enabled the practice to greatly increase the number of exam rooms and infusion chairs. The former location for Kingsport Hematology Oncology contained about 20,000 square feet, of which about 8,000 was designated for infusion services. That number has jumped to about 33,000 square feet, of which 11,000-12,000 square feet has been set aside for infusion. Kingsport Hematology Oncology has increased the number of infusion chairs from 30 to 42 and the number of exam rooms from 12 to 21.
Kingsport Hematology Oncology and Wellmont leaders held a ribbon cutting on Oct. 24. Kingsport Hematology Oncology began using the facility on Oct. 3.
