The Renovated and Expanded NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center
Inspired by you… Because You Matter.
With more people seeking a high level of cancer care close to home, NHRMC embarked on a complete renovation and significant expansion of our primary location for cancer services: NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center.
Before we designed and began building the new center, we talked to patients, family members and caregivers to hear what’s important to them and how a new center could better meet their needs. Their ideas and comments drove the design plan and will result in a beautiful, serene healing environment.
Phase 1 Completed
The first phase of the Zimmer Cancer Center renovation is complete and includes:
- Expanded infusion space
- Dedicated laboratory and pharmacy areas
- Exam rooms
- Physician offices
Zimmer Renovation Expected to be Completed in Fall
When the final renovations are completed later this year, the Zimmer Cancer Center will open with:
Double the Space
Whether it's a physician visit, diagnostic test or chemotherapy, patients will be able to come to one place for more of their cancer care.
More Cancer Specialists Working Together in One Place
Medical oncologists with Cape Fear Cancer Specialists-NHRMC Physician Group will move their Wilmington office to the renovated center, joining the team of radiation, surgical and gynecologic oncologists seeing patients there.
Information & Inspiration Center
Patients, families and caregivers will find resources to support, assist and empower them in a center that includes a substantial library and a dedicated staff.
Dedicated Space for a Companion During Chemotherapy
Patients may choose between open spaces shared with other patients, or a private suite with only their companion nearby.
A Range of Cancer Support Specialists
In addition to physicians, the center will offer care teams that include nurse practitioners, oncology-certified nurses, therapists, physician assistants, exercise specialists and other healthcare professionals with oncology experience or specialized training.
