Hockey great Mario Lemieux joined UPMC officials on Tuesday at the dedication of the Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers in Shadyside.

The outpatient facility provides services to patients with leukemia, Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, multiple myeloma and other blood malignancies.

Lemieux, co-owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, is a cancer survivor.

The center, part of UPMC Cancer Centers and the University of Pitsburgh Cancer Institute, is located on the fourth floor of the Hillman Cancer Center.

Officials said patients who normally have to travel to different offices to visit clinicians and undergo tests instead will be able to do everything in one place. The center will enable more patients to enroll in clinical trials.
