The cancer hospital is one of the four health facilities at the Ramadi Medical Complex that was seized by the militant group in 2014 prior to its completion and houses the radiation therapy systems that account for 50 percent of the Middle Eastern country's ability to treat cancer, the company said Wednesday.

The company carried out the remediation program as part of a project with the State Department's office of weapons removal and abatement that kicked off in April 2016.

Iraq's ministry of health has begun rebuilding efforts at the medical complex after JGO's explosive ordnance professionals identified at least 50 explosives that include IED main charges, improvised mortars, small ammunitions, artillery shells and hand grenades.
