Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan is about to get 121,000 square feet of new space and 30,000 square feet of remodeled space, a $48 million expansion just two years after completion. Batson-Cook developed the original project and accordingly, it has been entrusted with the current construction work too.
Founded in 1915, the soon to be century-old Batson-Cook Construction is involved in building commercial projects for healthcare, industrial, manufacturing and private development clients alike, mostly throughout the southeastern U.S.
The current 226,000-square-foot cancer treatment healthcare facility includes two linear accelerator vaults, a full range of diagnostic imaging services, and modern radiation and infusion therapy departments. Surgical suites, an outpatient clinic, 25 private inpatient rooms, rehabilitation and physical therapy departments, kitchen, dining room, and a chapel are also part of the facility. CTCA includes a residential tower for the convenience of outpatients and their families.
The renovation process is divided into four main update stages and the hospital will maintain its operations in the meantime within the existing facility. The Inpatient Expansion Project will complement the facility with 25 newly built patient rooms and add a penthouse too. The second phase, the Clinic Expansion Project will completely encompass the currently operational clinic and infusion areas of the facility since plans include vertical expansion as well as a horizontal enlargement. Four-stories and a penthouse are to be added in this phase. A one-story Surgery Expansion is also underway, adding two new operating rooms, post-anesthesia bays and sterile area spaces. Planned to be raised adjacent to the current facility, the Radiation Therapy Expansion will bring additional offices, clinical space and enhancements to the existing central energy plant along with a new space specially designed to house a state-of-the-art radiosurgery system.
