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.
The Georgia Cancer Center's Outpatient Services Clinic opened in January 2010. The clinic consists of 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 six 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.
