FirstHealth of the Carolinas is building a new, all-encompassing cancer center that will forever change the way we treat cancer patients, from diagnosis to treatment – most importantly – into survivorship. Funded in part by The Foundation of FirstHealth's Building the Dream Campaign, the center will have it all – spaces for diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
A section of the center will be dedicated to research and world-class clinical trials, and there will be areas for newly diagnosed patients to meet with their care teams. It will include a healing garden, spaces for support group meetings and even yoga studios. Families will be considered, too, as they experience the cancer journey right along with someone who has been diagnosed.
Watch the video to learn more about how we plan to care for the entire patient - and their family members - in our new center. You can also follow our progress on Facebook.
Construction of the Cancer Center's parking deck began in late 2020 and should be done by the summer of 2021.
