Wellstar Health System
Located in Northwest Georgia, WellStar provides care for patients and their families from across the state and throughout the Southeast. Thousands of adults with cancer diagnoses of all types turn to us for expert treatment. WellStar has the first accredited Network Cancer Program in Georgia and the fifth in the nation, by American College of Surgeons. WellStar is also home to Georgia’s first Cyberknife® robotic radiosurgery program and what is now the largest Genetic Risk Assessment Program in Georgia. With the combined resources of WellStar's five world-class hospitals, the WellStar Medical Group, our Imaging Centers and our dedicated medical staff, WellStar delivers individualized cancer care and cutting-edge integrated oncology treatment in a nurturing, collaborative and supportive environment. Our multi-disciplinary cancer team addresses care at every step, from prevention and screening through genetic testing, clinical trials and follow-up care. Our STAT (Specialty Team and Treatment) Clinics also use a multi-disciplinary approach with a goal of starting patients on treatment quickly—in days, not weeks or months.
“With standard medical care, patients can spend as long as 53 days from an abnormal x-ray to their first treatment for lung cancer. With our STAT Clinic, we have cut the time down to about 13 days, which is quite remarkable. Patients are seen by a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, which provides these physicians an opportunity to confer with each other in real time to make the best decision for the patient. I feel that there is no better cancer system in Georgia in terms of excellent physicians, care, compassion and knowledge.”
