This is not an advertisement...I am just super excited about it and wanted to share...I hope you don't mind!
I work at Nebraska Medicine and today is the dedication of the Pamela and Fred Buffett Cancer Center...I am going to the dedication this afternoon and I am quite excited. Joe Biden will be the featured speaker.
The cancer center includes: •The Suzanne and Walter Scott Cancer Research Tower, a 10-story, 98-laboratory research tower •The C.L. Werner Cancer Hospital, an eight-story, 108-bed inpatient treatment center •A multidisciplinary outpatient center which includes clinics, radiation oncology, surgery, radiology, a 24/7 treatment center, lab and collaborative treatment/diagnostics
It has been in the building phase for about 2 years and in the planning stages for much longer...and will actually open it's doors to the first patients in June.
But the thing I can't wait to see is all of the glasswork...Chihuly Sanctuary...donors paid for the creation of a center with glasswork in all colors to be in the building...the pictures I have seen are absolutely beautiful! The center is to heal body, mind and spirit. Dale Chihuly's works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, "moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture."
