New Cancer Center Opens at High Point Regional
The $15.5 million Cancer Center at High Point Regional Health System opens this coming week with a number of open houses, a donor gala and an opportunity on Saturday, June 7, for the public to view the results of the year-long construction project.
The most exciting aspect of the new center is that all services relating to cancer treatment are now in one location, promising greater comfort and convenience for the patients and their families. Features of the center include radiation therapy, medical oncology, physicians’ offices (Emerywood Oncology), chemotherapy administration, support services, 18 large patient rooms, and many areas geared to family as a part of the treatment process.
The invitation only donor gala on June 5th will also include participants from Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, who have an alliance with High Point Regional for cancer treatment.
On June 6th, employees who made contributions to the center’s “Fountain of Hope,” many in honor or memory of loved ones who had cancer, will have a special dedication ceremony and filling of the fountain.
The public open house on Saturday, June 7 is from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., and the community is invited to tour the building and view such special features as the meditation room, the labryinth, and the large family area.
Also on June 7 is the Annual Cancer Survivor’s Day, being held for the first time in the Cancer Center from 3 – 4:30 p.m.
The Cancer Center is located at the corner of Westwood and Elm St., across from the hospital’s Visitor’s Parking Deck. For information on public activities for the opening of the Cancer Center, call 336/878-6888.
