Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano joined local leaders, as well as Sloan Kettering administrators and patients, to sign a symbolic beam, commemorating the official groundbreaking of the new Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Nassau Hub in Uniondale.

“It is an honor and privilege to have a global health care leader like Memorial Sloan Kettering invest in Nassau County,” said County Executive Mangano. “This new state-of-the-art outpatient facility will offer critical cancer care to patients without the wear and tear of traveling to Manhattan. The project will also allow for the continued growth of Nassau’s health care industry, and make Nassau’s Hub the center for innovation in the healthcare field. I want to thank all those involved in working to make this project a reality.”

The new 140,000 square foot facility will be constructed on the southwest portion of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum property in Uniondale, and will expand Memorial Sloan Kettering’s ability to bring world-class cancer treatment and compassionate care to the residents of Nassau and eastern Queens. When completed, Memorial Sloan Kettering will employ approximately 250 clinical and administrative positions with an average annual salary and benefits package totaling $150,000.
