In early 2013, Alamance Regional plans to begin construction of a new 40,000 square-foot cancer center. This two-story center has been designed to provide the optimal healing environment for patients. Features of the facility will include an abundance of natural light, a welcoming atrium, a boutique for cancer patients, a family lounge area with internet access, and a café that offers coffee and smoothies. The center will also include a family resource center and space for community education and support groups. Adjacent green space outside the new center will provide a walking area and healing garden in a courtyard setting.
The new structure will join the current cancer center at the end of the Medical Arts Building on the Alamance Regional Campus. The radiation treatment area will be expanded and a larger chemotherapy treatment area will include options for small group treatment, private treatment bays and rooms with beds. Twenty large exam rooms are designed to allow more space for family members who may accompany patients.
