Our Approach

Improving Cancer Outcomes with Skill and Compassion

Our mission at the The Georgia Cancer Center is “to reduce the burden of cancer in the State of Georgia and across the globe through superior care, innovation, and education.” We believe in helping any cancer patient and any healthcare provider access our services at any point from diagnosis to treatment to survivorship – always with skill and compassion. We focus on outreach – to our patients within the communities we serve and beyond. If we can help any person improve their outcomes, we’ve helped reduce the number of cancer deaths in Georgia.

Cancer Partnerships across the Region

Known as the state’s cancer center, oncology specialists at The Georgia Cancer Center partner with healthcare providers within the state and across the region to teach the next generation of oncology specialists. Our goal is to help more cancer patients by expanding our reach beyond Augusta with innovative treatments and access to clinical trials.   

The Georgia Cancer Center leads a team of statewide partners in a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program. This collaborative effort is Georgia’s only minority focused research program, one of twelve sites nationally. Our partners include:

Through our broad experience treating patients with cancer across the region, we know seeing a cancer specialist as soon as possible will help reduce the anxiety of uncertainty. At the Georgia Cancer Center, we see all ages of patients through our various facilities, including our main outpatient clinic, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia and our radiation oncology location. We have dedicated parking and helpful navigation to get you where you’re going. We see patients in all phases – for those that may suspect cancer to those that are seeking an innovative clinical trial when other cancer treatment options are limited. For every patient, at any point in your care, our expert services are readily available:

  • Patients can self-refer by simply calling a Nurse Navigator 
  • Nurse Navigators can also help with second opinion requests
  • Find information about access to innovative care through clinical trials
