The patient experience is very important to us. Whether it’s the latest in cancer therapeutics or specialized services addressing patients’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, the Georgia Cancer Center is
committed to providing excellent care.
The Georgia Cancer Center offers:
A 60,000 sq. ft. state-of- the-art outpatient facility; patient- and family-centered care tailored to each patient’s unique needs; personalized treatment plans utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach; around-the-clock access to Nurse Navigators charged with assisting patients along their care journeys; specialized support services such as nutrition, sexual health, music, and art therapies; the area’s first cancer-dedicated genetics clinic; one of only 16 federally funded minority-based community clinical oncology programs designed to increase
minority population access to advanced cancer treatments; innovative collaborations bridging cancer research and patient care; pediatric oncology services at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia; a toll-free cancer information service line for the public – 1-888-365-0747
It is our aim to increase cancer education, awareness, early detection, and prevention throughout all segments
of our community. The Georgia Cancer Center has initiated a three-pronged outreach program focused on:
* HPV (human papillomavirus) and cancer
* Obesity and cancer
* Tobacco-related cancers
Because no treatment advances are possible without a strong research platform, the Georgia Cancer Center includes over 400 scientists and associated personnel conducting cancer-related research.
These scientists utilize state-of-the-art technology and partnerships with organizations such as the Georgia Research Alliance and Georgia CORE (Center for Oncology Research & Education) to discover the new
biomarkers, signaling pathways and therapeutic targets that are the basis for clinical trials. Collaboration with clinical investigators through the Cancer Center Clinical Trials O!ce and Cancer Clinical Research Unit results in many “first-in-man” trials and treatments for cancer patients.
