The University of Cincinnati Cancer Center announced the renaming of a street in anticipation of the opening of a new facility in Uptown Cincinnati. The Blood Cancer Healing Center, led by internationally known physician researcher John Byrd, will now be located on Healing Way. 

"From the start of the cancer journey, it is important empathetic care leading to healing occurs,” said Byrd, MD, Cancer Center member and Gordon and Helen Hughes Taylor Professor and Chair of the Department of Internal Medicine at the UC College of Medicine. “This street will set the tone for those visiting the Blood Cancer Healing Center.”

Formerly called Shriners Way, Healing Way runs north and south between Albert Sabin Way and Goodman Avenue. The Blood Cancer Healing Center’s new address is now officially 3232 Healing Way, with the building also accessible off of Burnet Avenue. 

Cancer Center leaders will celebrate the Blood Cancer Healing Center’s grand opening at a closed ceremony June 24, celebrating the beginning of clinical services, with research and other spaces within the facility scheduled to open in 2025. The event is not open to the public.
