Med Center’s new cancer center opening this fall

July 17, 2014 

The Medical Center of Central Georgia’s new outpatient cancer center, set to open this fall, will be named for Peyton Anderson, the late owner and publisher of The Macon Telegraph and The Macon News. The center will offer a “one-stop shop” for treatment, hospital officials said Thursday.

The four-story, 154,000-square-foot downtown Macon facility “will house diagnostics, chemotherapy, radiation (treatment), clinical trials, nurse navigation ... survivorship support and education,” the hospital noted.

Construction began in December to tack on a 104,000-square-foot addition to a building near the corner of First and Hemlock streets. The new facility is diagonally across First Street from the hospital’s Albert Luce Jr. Heart Institute. The center’s upper floors, which face northeasterly, offer some of the best views of downtown.
