PALMDALE – The Antelope Valley Cancer Center is expanding its medical treatment facilities to a new location at 38660 Medical Center Drive in Palmdale.

“Our new location right at the Palmdale Regional Medical Center close to the 14 Freeway will provide easier transportation convenience for our patients and their families,” said Dr. Mukund Shah of the Antelope Valley Cancer Center.

The AV Cancer Center’s new office will be opening on Monday, June 10.

It is located in Suite A-380 in a medical office building directly attached to the Palmdale Regional Medical Center.

“Moving to a newer building will enable the Cancer Center [to] continue our innovative treatment advances and patient care focus with state-of-the-art medical technology,” Dr. Shah continued.  “It will also provide more comfortable and relaxed surroundings for our patients and staff.”

“I am very pleased that the AV Cancer Center is continuing to put the needs of its patients first,” stated Palmdale City Councilwoman Laura Bettencourt.  “Their new location will be a great asset to residents of the Antelope Valley.”

The AV Cancer Center will be maintaining a presence at its original location on 15th Street West in Lancaster for patient care and radiation treatment services.

In addition, the AV Cancer Center has had a South Kern County regional facility in Ridgecrest since 1986.

    Cancer treatment is a LIE. It’s all about BIG MONEY, in pharmaceuticals, research ( as a weapon ) , creating JOBS, control on patents, etc. Actually caused by virus that government is VERY AWARE of. A huge percentage of the population now has ( like AIDES virus that came from South Africa ) and does have an accomplice as well 65. This virus gets into intestinal track causing ulcer like symptoms, cysts that usually occur in reproductive organs, anal, stomach, digestive then burrows in lungs, ( breathing , heart problems ). It can be dormant for long periods of time and will wait to attack when people are at their weakest. ( tactic used like military strategy / in war ). Kills important protector gene P53. Same with chemo ( strips you of your DNA , blood with new ) and radiation ( nothing more than halocaust style tactics). You see our government has made it happen as more of these violent predators are allowed to be here without allowing us to have a say or ability to fight them ( kill or make leave ). Tied into lots of $ and funding for mental illness, hospitals, housing, jails, tourism, industry,schools in order to control population. And the population continues to believe they are doing what’s best for us. It’s OBAMACARE. Believe me HE DOESN’T and neither do people who run our hospitals or our city. Check out all the new hospitals that are being built ( cancer, child research ) Palmdale, AV, kaiser , the one on I and 3rd not to mention jails and now our schools ). Why do you think so many ( and pretty much only ) college classes, careers, jobs are in some way connected to medical? Think about it , do your own research, look around you people! I know it’s hard to accept and believe but PLEASE it is real ( really happening ). I know this post has been on here for awhile I hope it gets noticed / read. Pass on this info

    I am sorry that the Cancer Center is leaving Lancaster. It along with the new City of Hope facility near AV Hospital would have concentrated cancer care in one location (Lancaster), but people have to do what they have to do. Palmdale Hospital, by the way, is a for-profit hospital, so I suppose if the one uses their facility through the cancer center, they will pay plenty. I don’t know if the City of Hope will be any cheaper. They had a cancer group merge with them and I guess if they are (the group) for profit, too. Cancer care is not cheap because of the high prices drugs and radiation treatment. I hope the American Cancer Society unit in the AV publicizes the different alternatives for patients, so they can, at least, price shop their care.

      Hey Michael,

      The center is not leaving Lancaster, it is just expanding to Palmdale. It will be an extension, just like they have in Ridgecrest.

    This is great, one less reason to travel to Rexville.

      The City of Hope Cancer Treatment Center coming to Rexville will be worth its weight in gold though.
