Groundbreaking ceremonies have been held in Rome for a new cancer center. Harbin Clinic President and C.E.O. Dr. Ken Davis says medical professionals from throughout the community, regardless of hospital affiliation, have worked together and share the mission of providing the best cancer care possible for patients.

Cancer fighting efforts will be strengthened in Northwest Georgia once the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center in Rome is in operation, according to President of Georgia Cancer Coalition Bill Todd. Todd addressed a crowd of stakeholders at a groundbreaking ceremony Friday at the site of the future Cancer Center. The center is scheduled to be open for use in April 2011.
