The AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute is a 39,600-square-foot facility in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. It offers the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technology, including technology new to the southeastern New Jersey region.
AtlantiCare made the choice to establish a healthy building and a healing environment through the integration of sustainable design and construction practices at the Cancer Care Institute, as well as the integration of beautiful artwork throughout the building.
All our treatment and patient care areas are designed with “green” building technologies and thoughtful amenities that promote a healing environment.
The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded the AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute Gold Certification for meeting its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards.
We have incorporated the healing arts throughout the Institute’s nature-inspired décor, which features sculptures, paintings and other works of art that create a sense of tranquility and peacefulness for patients, visitors and staff. Our Healing Arts program recognizes the role of the arts in the creation of beauty and serenity within a health care setting. Numerous studies show that clinical outcomes can be enhanced by incorporating the healing arts in the clinical environment.
Private examination rooms provide a quiet place for consultations with your doctors and nurses. Our main chemotherapy area is an open space with large windows that provide expansive views of daylight and nature. Patients receiving treatment have a choice of eight private infusion bays for chemotherapy or the open “buddy bay,” which allows you to enjoy the company of other patients. Our staff provides a high level of personal attention to every patient, explaining what to expect during treatment, answering questions and providing encouraging support.
The private infusion bays and buddy bay are furnished with large, comfortable recliners for patients and flat-screen televisions. Each area also includes extra seating for family members to relax by their loved ones side during treatment.
The AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute has teamed up with Gilda's Club South Jersey to bring the essential components of the Gilda’s Club program closer to the point of treatment – convenient for you and your family.
The Living Room is a satellite of Gilda’s Club South Jersey, offering comprehensive support activities free of charge.
