A $1 billion investment in our community
Over the next 10 years, Asante is embarking on its largest growth and development plan yet. It includes a $1 billion investment in the community for new construction, renovation, deferred maintenance, planned replacement, equipment and information technology.
Access to health services is a driving force behind these plans, which encompass Jackson and Josephine counties. Not only is access a strategic goal for Asante, it’s a priority to have rooms available for the people who rely on us to take care of them.
Asante Rogue Regional Patient Pavilion
A 323,600-square-foot patient pavilion is being built on the north side of the campus and will connect to the existing six-floor inpatient tower.
The addition will make more space available for people needing emergency care, women’s and children’s services, heart care and surgery.
Construction on the $455 million addition began Nov. 1, 2020, with completion in fall 2023. Expansion of the Emergency Department, site development and other renovations are included in the cost.
Mary and Dick Heimann Cancer Center
The 80,160-square-foot Mary and Dick Heimann Cancer Center, located near Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, houses all outpatient cancer services for one-stop patient convenience, including radiation therapy, infusion services, education and support services. The $64 million project began in February 2020 and opened June 5, 2022.
Helen K. Spears Cancer Center Expansion
The Helen K. Spears Cancer Center on the campus of Asante Three Rivers has grown by 24,000 square feet with a new two-story building. The now 35,000-square-foot Helen K. Spears Cancer Center houses all outpatient cancer services for one-stop patient convenience, including radiation therapy, infusion, lab and pharmacy services. The estimated cost is $15.2 million. Construction began in September 2020 and was completed in May 2022.
Asante Three Rivers Emergency Department Expansion
Asante Three Rivers expanded and renovated its Emergency Department to accommodate the growing number of people seeking care. Treating more than 41,000 patients annually, the ED added 11 beds and doubled in size. The $12.7 million project was completed in December 2020.
Asante Rogue Regional Behavioral Health
Asante Rogue Regional has expanded its inpatient behavioral health unit from 18 to 24 beds to address the growing need for acute mental health care. The $6.8 million project was completed in spring 2020 and includes a courtyard garden and calming spaces for patients.

One of Asante’s most valued sources of funding for this expansion comes from community members. Asante Foundation is undertaking its largest campaign ever, called AsanteForward, with a goal to raise at least $50 million to help transform the quality and breadth of health care in our region.
These projects and others will have a significant economic benefit beyond construction when you factor in revenue to communities from added jobs, taxes and purchases. The best part is the funds invested in the community stay local, benefiting the entire Southern Oregon community.
