Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center recently held a weeklong orientation session called “Hope, Joy and Pride” for nearly 200 new employees (called “stakeholders”) at the Newnan facility.

The featured speakers were Bruce and Sarah Cooper from Andover, Kan.

CTCA begins meetings and events with a “Patient Impact Statement” to ground stakeholders in its mission, vision and values — and to reinforce its consumer-centric commitment to listening, to continuously improve based on what patients value, and to keep patients and their families at the center of care.

CTCA at Southeastern is scheduled to open in Newnan on Aug. 15. The 226,000-square-foot, fully digital hospital will bring new options and fully integrated, personalized cancer care to cancer patients from across the Southeast.

CTCA has begun a major media campaign across the metro Atlanta area announcing the upcoming opening of the new facility.
