Shands Healthcare planned a system-wide, ten-year $1.5 billion expansion program to respond to Florida’s increasing number of cancer patients. CCS assisted Shands with its $55 million campaign in support of its plan to build a new Shands at UF Cancer Hospital.

Delivering Medical Miracles

Shands at the University of Florida, located in Gainesville, is the state’s leading referral center with patients coming from every county in Florida, as well as from the entire southeastern portion of the United States. In response to Florida’s distinction of having the second highest cancer burden in the nation, the first step in the Shands’ system-wide, ten-year $1.5 billion expansion program was the construction of the Shands at UF Cancer Hospital. CCS assisted Shands with its $55 million campaign in support of their plan to build this new facility. Most recently, CCS conducted a feasibility study for Shands Hospital for Children and Women.
