Building Alabama

Grandview Medical Center celebrated the grand opening of its Cancer Center on Thursday, May 31, 2018, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Brasfield & Gorrie representatives, United States Congressman Gary Palmer, members of the medical staff, employees, and members of the hospital’s board of trustees. The new center is designed to help patients more easily access a breadth of cancer care treatment and resources in one convenient location.

Construction on Grandview Cancer Center, located on the Grandview Health campus, began in May 2017.

Radiation oncology is located on the first floor of the building and hematology/oncology services on the second floor.

Aesthetically, Grandview Cancer Center features Grandview’s signature glass and curved façade. Earl Swensson Associates served as architect.

  • 3,600 cubic yards of concrete were poured
