KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Truman Medical Center in Kansas City has opened a new cancer treatment center.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1mCcXdJ ) the new $6 million Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Center opened this week, tripling the size of Truman’s previous cancer treatment facility.
