The Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence at Grady Health System collaborates with thousands of patients each year to treat their cancer fearlessly, using the latest technology and state-of-the-art techniques.
Since the Center opened in 2003, Grady has acquired the best diagnostic and treatment technology available, recruited some of the nation’s most talented physicians and built multidisciplinary teams of caregivers committed to a singular mission of providing the best care possible to everyone who walks through our doors.
As part of this commitment, we have modernized treatment rooms to ensure our patients have the best experience possible and participated in hundreds of clinical trials and other research projects to advance the science of cancer treatment. And we reinforce our commitment to the best and latest medical practices by creating collaborative caregiver teams comprised of cancer and other specialists from the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory, Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine and Grady.
As a result of our unique, inclusive approach to cancer care, in 2017 the Center was awarded a five-year, $2 million Merck Foundation grant. The award made us part of the new Alliance to Advance Patient-Centered Cancer Care, whose aim is to improve timely access to care and reduce disparities in care for vulnerable and underserved populations. Other Alliance members include Johns Hopkins University, Massachusetts General Hospital, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, and the University of Arizona.
Every hospital’s mission is to care for patients. At Grady, we strive to care for them better, ensuring positive and safe interactions during every step of their cancer journey, from screening to survivorship. To do this, we treat all who come through our doors with respect, concern, and compassion.
The GCCE is consistently recognized by national organizations that set standards and monitor performance, including:
