Landscape Spurs Inspiration for New Cancer Center in Alabama

East Alabama Medical Center’s new E.L. Spencer, Jr. and Ruth Priester Spencer Cancer Center, located in Opelika, Alabama, recently welcomed patients. The project team for the more than 59,000-square-foot facility included TRO Jung|Brannen and Bailey-Harris.

Amenities include 28 infusion chairs in five bays, 10 infusion center extension chairs, a boutique, an outpatient pharmacy, two linear accelerators, 18 examination rooms, a chapel and more.

A multitude of positive enhancements are purposeful parts of the building’s design and found around every turn — the lobby is adorned with cheerful hand-blown glass chandeliers and pink furniture is featured in the boutique.

Located on 15.66 acres of land, the center is designed to take advantage of the hill and landscape of the property. A window wall on the south side of the building reveals a landscaped, lush, grassy hillside and woodlands. It is designed to be reminiscent of Augusta National’s “Amen Corner.”
