The Georgia Cancer Center has three missions, one laboratory-based, one clinic-based and one education-based. Each of the Georgia Cancer Center facilities are designed with a purpose. Using a modern, scientific approach known as evidence-based design along with the expert advice of cancer patient advisors, our treatment facilities bring in nature and sunlight and puts patients in charge in as many ways as possible. Our research facilities celebrate innovation, combining form with function to offer our scientists an environment for collaboration and discovery.
In September 2008 ground was broken for our freestanding cancer treatment clinic. It began treating patients in January 2010.The multidisciplinary cancer teams at the Georgia Cancer Center in Augusta provide treatment for cancer patients in Georgia, South Carolina and the Southeast. The cancer treatment teams consist of skilled cancer specialists who address every concern you may have about cancer.
The building is 57,000 square feet featuring a beautiful lobby and commons area, 30
exam rooms designed for patients by patients, and 30 infusion stations looking out
to a beautiful rooftop garden. These infusion stations offer flexibility to provide
the utmost privacy or the ability to visit with other patients and families – whichever
the patient prefers. Our clinic also offers 6 private treatment rooms, a 146 - space
parking garage adjacent to the building with covered patient drop-off, and clinical
research administrative and treatment areas where patients have the opportunity to
participate in cutting-edge clinical trials.

The five-story, 167,000-square-foot cancer research facility opened in 2006 at a cost of $54-million. It houses administrative offices, laboratories and special equipment for researchers, such as flow cytometry resources. It also provides meeting space for seminars and lectures, such as the Georgia Cancer Center Lecture Series, which draws an audience from across the campus; training sessions on sophisticated software used in research, and community-wide forums on cancer-related topics.
The Cancer Center is home to some 35 Augusta University research faculty and approximately 175 associated personnel.
Laboratories have an open floor plan to allow work areas to flow into each other, fitting the collaborative nature of research today.
In the spirit of environmental harmony, angled ceilings and structural glass result in a space filled with natural light to reduce energy use. The center’s roof is covered with slow-growing grass to minimize heat loss and gain and to lessen the impact of runoff on the city’s water system.
A satellite energy plant with chilled water and steam provides heating and cooling
for the Cancer Center and two adjacent research facilities. The plant's current capacity
allows for future expansion.
