Groundbreaking Ceremony

On Friday, May 13, leaders from UMMS, UMMC, UMGCCC, as well as government officials and Roslyn and Leonard Stoler, shared remarks to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Stoler Center.

About the Stoler Center

The Roslyn and Leonard Stoler Center for Advanced Medicine—the new home of UMGCCC—will provide state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient cancer services to meet the escalating demands for cancer care well into the future.

With six floors dedicated to cancer care, the new Center will offer more private room options, updated technology for evaluation and treatment, exclusive bone marrow transplant and cellular therapy space, healing garden and modern waiting areas, and an all new entrance for the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Incorporating 198,000 square feet of new space and 42,000 square feet of renovated space in the medical center, the building will double the cancer center's footprint. Construction is slated to begin in late 2022 with completion expected in 2025.

Collaborative Team Design

With input from over 100 staff members including patients, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, physical therapists, infection prevention experts, social workers and environmental services, security, technology, food services as well as facilities design experts and engineers, the Stoler Center's design boasts state-of-the-art innovations.

Construction Updates

Reminder: The Downtown and Midtown Campus front entrances are intended for patients, visitors and care partners.

Make a Donation

To fund the construction of the Roslyn and Leonard Stoler Center for Advanced Medicine, the University of Maryland Medical Center launched the Building for Life Campaign, an extraordinary effort to raise $55 million for this state-of-the-art patient tower that will become the new home of the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Building for Life Campaign also supports the advancement of clinical care, patient support services, research, training, and education within the cancer center.

The Stoler Center will expand UMGCCC by 50 percent enhancing cancer care and treatment — and will forever change the face of the medical campus.
