BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Governor Robert Bentley and Birmingham Mayor William Bell were together on Friday for a ribbon cutting ceremony at UAB’s newly modernized cancer center.

Hundreds of people packed the lobby of the Wallace Tumor Institute to celebrate what has been accomplished since the facility opened in 1975.

The $30 million renovation project went towards construction and equipment for the Wallace Tumor Institute.

It’s not only more aesthetically pleasing, but it allows for efficient use of the six-story facility for research and patient care.

Some of the key features of the renovated facility include state-of-the-art research labs, a 61,000-pound cyclotron and a patient education area.
