Public Can Tour New Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional

The public is invited to the new Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional. Tours of the $21 million facility will be given on Sunday, Jan. 12 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. at Alamance Regional Medical Center. Patients will begin using the two-story, 44,000 sq. ft. facility on Jan. 13.

“This represents a major investment in our cancer program. Our program has long been built on delivering high-quality care,” says Alamance Regional Medical Center President and COO Preston Hammock. “Finally we have the space and amenities to match the level of care that we bring our patients.”

Patients will find 24 exam rooms, two new treatment rooms and 30 chemotherapy treatment areas. The areas range from private rooms to communal areas where patients can talk with others during treatments that often take several hours. All of the spaces have views of a 2.5 acre healing garden. The serene space is also accessible on foot to all hospital visitors.

The center houses two radiation vaults. One contains a recently purchased TrueBeam® linear accelerator. The device uses powerful bursts of highly-focused radiation to kill cancer cells. This results in fewer side-effects and shorter treatment times. The other vault contains equipment to plan radiation treatments and equipment used in the radiation seed program. The seeds are an advanced technique for treating prostate cancer.   

The new cancer center provides three times the space that was previously available. “Cancer is much more than a disease to be treated. It takes a toll on the mind and the spirit,” says Cancer Center Director Brendan Fitzpatrick. “We offer an appearance boutique, an area dedicated to survivorship, a family resource area and other amenities. The additional space in our new building allows us to offer these services to the people who need them.”

The Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional has earned a three-year accreditation with commendation from the American College of Surgeons. Only approximately 22 percent of surveyed cancer centers achieve this designation of quality. The Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional is also certified under the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative Program of The American Society of Clinical Oncology.
