MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - The Medical Center of Central Georgia will feature a new way to treat patients soon.

The long-awaited Peyton Anderson Cancer Center at The Medical Center of Central Georgia is nearly finished.

The building was officially named after Peyton Anderson at a ceremony Thursday evening.

It took about 10 months to build, and cost 44 million dollars.

The building is about 100 thousand square feet with four floors.

With everything in one place, Medical Center officials say it will lower costs for patients, and they'll be able to receive quicker care.

"We have several employees that have been with oncology services for many many years," said Interim Director of Oncology Services Roberta Parmenter. "So this is their chance to come together as a group, as a team."

"Patients will love coming here," Parmenter added. "Patients love the Medical Center--that's a given. But this is a really a time for them to get what they need in one place without having to go all over the campus."

The building should start seeing patients this Fall.
