The Georgia Cancer Center for Excellence (GCCE) at Grady was established by the Georgia Cancer Coalition as part of an initiative to build a statewide network of people and organizations to provide exceptional cancer treatment for all Georgians. Funded by the tobacco settlement, the $28 million dollar state of the art facility provides highly attentive care to cancer patients and their families. The facility also houses the $3.3 million Avon Breast Health Center.
