November 08, 2017 by Heather Pachnar

The weather was cold and blustery, but that didn’t stop over 100 people from attending the Groundbreaking for the new cancer center at Vidant Edgecombe Hospital.  Staff and community members gathered under a large tent to hear from speakers Mr. Wick Baker, President of Vidant Edgcombe Hospital, Chaplain Carolyn Barbe, Chairman of the Vidant Edgecombe Hospital Development Council Mr. Kenny Parker and Medical Oncologist at Vidant Oncology-Tarboro Dr. Sandeep Pandit. 

The new cancer center is expected to open in the fall of 2018, and will have eight infusion chairs, two private infusion rooms and a beautiful healing garden for patients and family members to enjoy.  It will also house an image renewal center, which will have a boutique and licensed salon that will offer such products as wigs and makeup to help patients feel their best.
