The Georgia Cancer Center is on a mission for Georgia providing industry-leading cancer research and care that benefits patients locally and globally. Our ultimate goal is to eradicate cancer and we are proudly making progress every day. When we say patient care is a priority, we mean it. We assemble custom teams of field experts to address each individual’s unique needs.

Partnerships with local communities for increased access to education and screenings are particularly helpful for diagnosing cases in earlier, more easily treatable stages of the disease.

Formally founded in 2015, our team’s progress to date plus elevated goals for the future put the Georgia Cancer Center on a path to compete with any cancer center in Georgia and beyond.
