Time-Lapse Camera Shows Progress of James M Stockman Cancer Institute


Frederick Regional Health System’s time-lapse camera at the site of the new James M. Stockman Cancer Institute on the hospital’s Rose Hill campus is now live online. Gilbane Building Company, the company hired to build the Institute, installed the OxBlue time-lapse camera in July 2016. Website visitors can track the Institute’s construction evolution as we near its expected completion date of summer 2017. An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony will be announced soon.

After months of planning, fundraising, and building, the Cancer Institute is fast becoming a reality. With a beautifully and carefully designed environment to promote healing and relaxation, this new facility will have ample space to accommodate FRHS’ patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach to care.

At nearly twice the size of the existing facility, the new Cancer Institute will house everything that patients fighting cancer and their families need in a fully integrated, comprehensive cancer care center. Combine these advantages with FRHS’ recent affiliation with MD Anderson Cancer Network®, and the James M. Stockman Cancer Institute is well positioned to bring a new level of experience and compassionate care to the Frederick community.

“Over the years, FRHS has invested in leading-edge technologies for cancer treatment, including CyberKnife®, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy, and the daVinci® Robotic Surgery System to name just a few,” says Dr. Mark Soberman, Oncology Service Line Medical Director at FRHS. “We have recruited highly-trained cancer specialists and support staff for our care teams. The decision to build the James M. Stockman Cancer Institute on our Rose Hill campus is the most recent symbol of our commitment to excellence in cancer care, visible to our entire community.”

The FMH Development Council has raised more than $18.6 million of the Institute’s estimated $21 million cost. Having exceeded the original fundraising goal of $15 million, efforts are now underway to secure additional support in hopes of fully funding the project through charitable giving, creating a facility that will truly be for the community, by the community.
