New Cancer Center Opens in Birmingham

Jun 13, 2018

Patients seeking cancer treatment in Alabama have a new option for care.

Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham opened its new, state-of-the-art cancer center just two weeks ago. The new, twenty six thousand square foot facility is designed to help patients more easily access a wide range of cancer treatment options and resources in one location.

Dr. Jennifer De Los Santos is the director of the cancer center. She says the new facility will offer a team approach to cancer care – and that’s something she says is new for the Birmingham area.

“I think one of the things over the years in academic medicine that I noted with the team approach is three heads are always better that one. We’re going to be able to create comprehensive plans for patients up front, and that always results in better care.”

The new center boasts some of the latest technology for both chemotherapy and radiation oncology.
