AdventHealth seeks approval for new cancer center

MERRIAM, Kan. – A local healthcare provider is looking to revamp their parking lot to make way for a new cancer treatment center.

The Merriam Planning Commission has unanimously approved a preliminary development plan for AdventHealth to build a new cancer center at its Shawnee Mission campus.

To make space for the new treatment center, AdventHealth intends to demolish the existing two-story parking lot located on the north side of W. 74th Street, west of the existing Shawnee Mission Heart and Vascular Center.

Construction of the three-story, 70,995 square foot building will require the hospital to remove approximately 546 parking spaces. The applicant proposes to construct a new 229-space parking lot north of the new cancer center to help meet parking needs.

The preliminary development plan will be presented to Merriam Town Council later this month for final review. When construction is complete, the new building will replace the current AdventHealth Cancer Center located at 9301 W. 74th St., Suite 100.
