The Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional Opens Its Doors

The new Cone Health Cancer Center at Alamance Regional opened its doors to patients this week. The 44,000-square-foot facility offers more space for patients, families and caregivers.

“The chemotherapy infusion space in our previous cancer center was located in the basement without windows and offered little space for family members or caregivers to accompany the patients,” says Preston Hammock, President and Chief Operating Officer, Alamance Regional Medical Center. “Now we finally have a space that matches our high-quality clinical care.”

The new center features 24 exam rooms, two procedure rooms and 30 chemotherapy treatment areas – a combination of private, semi-private and open spaces. Additionally, there is space for cancer case conferences, community programs and survivorship services. Once landscaping is complete, the second floor will overlook a “healing garden” for patients to enjoy as they receive treatment.

Leaders from the community, patients, employees and the general public enjoyed touring the new center at two events this month. Doris Cardwell, a former cancer center patient and volunteer with the center’s Wings to Recovery program, spoke to guest at one of the events. Cardwell says: “The new space lends itself to having more programs to help patients and survivors. The programs offered here help patients to form bonds when they’re here every week for a year.”
