The Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey has promoted two former associate directors to deputy director positions, according to a press release.
The alteration of these positions comes before the opening of the Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center in 2025.
The Jack and Sheryl Morris Cancer Center will be a 12-story cancer hospital that focuses on both outpatient and inpatient care. The center will consist of research labs that allow for faster feedback as well as retail space and supplemental health care services, according to a press release.
Leading up to the opening, the position of deputy director has evolved to include performing administrative tasks and strategic planning, according to the first press release.
Andrew Evans, now deputy director for clinical services, will help lead the Institute's clinical operations by working with experts in Quality and Practice Management and overseeing oncology services as a part of his expanded role.
Linda Tanzer, now deputy director for administration and planning, will oversee financial and administrative tasks at the Institute. Tanzer will work on diversity and community outreach efforts by collaborating with experts in the field, according to the first press release.
