CAMC Cancer Center
The CAMC Cancer Center opened in May 2015 with 110,000 square feet of space dedicated to the delivery of excellent and compassionate cancer care. The comprehensive, multi-disciplinary center allows cancer patients to receive all of their care in one place. Many adult cancer and cancer related services are provided by the cancer center to include radiology, radiation oncology, chemotherapy, oncological surgery, clinical trials and an infusion center. More than 30,000 patient encounters happen each year at the CAMC Cancer Center. The center also features a café, pharmacy, many comfortable seating areas, a boutique, outdoor healing garden, a tree-lined walking path, and free-plentiful parking. the CAMC Foundation launched a capital campaign and ultimately raised $15 million from many generous individuals, families, foundations and businesses to ensure that the cancer center was built.
There are many ways you can help support the services provided at the CAMC Cancer Center to include gifts to:
- The Boutique – to ensure cancer patients feel and look their best during and after treatment by having their hair styled, a free wig, or a manicure at no cost. • Cancer Survivorship Program – to ensure that patients can gather together to help each other and share resources as they learn to live after going through cancer treatment.
- CARE Team – to ensure that there is a team of nurse navigators, dieticians, psychologist and a survivorship coordinator to help guide patents during their cancer journeys.
- Gigi’s Place – to ensure that children who have a loved who is fighting cancer or who have lost a parent to cancer can receive counseling at no cost.
