Just a year after breaking ground, Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center opens today in Newnan.
Crews were busy Tuesday afternoon putting finishing touches on the facility, reached by a new road extension of Parkway North from Bullsboro Drive, as well as from McIntosh Parkway across from Ashley Park. A fountain and swan pond are located at the side of the landscaped approach.
The 226,000-square-foot, fully-digital facility is the fifth CTCA regional destination hospital. The facility specializes in treatment of advanced-stage and complex cancer.
“Today is about bringing cancer patients and their families throughout the Southeast more treatment options,” said Kane Dawson, president and CEO of CTCA at Southeastern.
“I can’t believe the day is here,” said Ginny Walley, a Senoia resident who was diagnosed with aggressive, stage three breast cancer in 2008 and received treatment at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. “The care they have given me has been a godsend, and now it’s closer to home.”
Hospital officials say CTCA is committed to serving the needs of cancer patients by focusing on quality of care, efficiency and absolute service excellence. CTCA at Southeastern will offer patients and their families a unique Patient Empowered Care model — a fully integrated, individualized model that combines state-of-the-art clinical treatments and technology with an array of supportive therapies — such as nutrition therapy, naturopathic medicine, pain management, oncology rehabilitation, mind-medicine and spiritual support — to help manage side effects and improve quality of life.

“At CTCA, we understand the urgency of bringing more options, more powerful and innovative therapies — and more hope — to patients and their families. We are a team focused on bringing cancer treatment back to the needs of patients,” said Dr. George Daneker, chief of staff, chief of surgery and surgical oncologist of CTCA at Southeastern.

The Newnan hospital features include 25 private inpatient rooms, surgical suites, state-of-the-art radiation and infusion therapy departments, an on-site outpatient clinic, rehabilitation and physical therapy, and on-site residential accommodations for outpatients and their families. In addition to advanced treatment options such as surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, CTCA offers supportive therapies such as naturopathic medicine, nutrition therapy, mind-body medicine, oncology rehabilitation, spiritual support and pain management.
