MCGHealth's new state-of-the-art cancer center celebrated its official grand opening Feb. 5.
A key person in making this huge project a reality is Steven L. Black, the administrative director of the oncology center and associate center director of clinical affairs for the MCGHealth Cancer Center. Mr. Black has worked diligently with the staff and Patient Advisory Council to make this outstanding facility patient- and family-centered. He has done tremendous work in coordinating efforts with the construction team, staff and patients along with other responsibilities.
Also, thanks to nurse Tracey Slagle and all the doctors and nurses for their hard work and dedication at the cancer center.
The CSRA is most fortunate to have this outstanding center that offers cutting-edge cancer research, coupled with a caring environment that offers hope and healing for cancer patients.
