​WellStar Cobb Hospital president Callie Andrews opens the new Cobb Cancer Center with nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals.
WellStar Cobb Hospital announced today it will open its new cancer center July 30. The 7,311 square foot center, now known as the WellStar Cobb Cancer Center, is a consolidation of all oncology and infusion services that were formerly spread out on the hospital’s campus. The official announcement was made during a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house July 19 on the hospital’s campus.

“Since 1985, WellStar Cobb Hospital’s comprehensive oncology and infusion services programs have treated thousands of patients, combining world-class cancer care and treatments for complex cancer cases, while also providing support for families and caregivers,” said Callie Andrews, president of WellStar Cobb Hospital. “Consolidating all of our services into one location will provide enhanced accessibility for patients and their loved ones.”

In addition to GYN and medical oncology services, the Cancer Center, located at 1700 South Hospital Drive, Suite 302, will include 17 infusion treatment chairs with the ability to expand in the future. Other features include a lung cancer Specialty Teams and Treatments (STAT) clinic with four exam rooms and conference room where an interdisciplinary team can discuss a patient’s treatment plan. A dedicated area for genetic testing and supportive care services, including nurse navigators, social workers, dieticians and financial counselors will also be available for patient’s onsite.

"WellStar Cobb Hospital has a long-standing history and commitment to treating cancer patients,” said Chad Schaeffer, vice president of oncology services at WellStar Cobb Hospital. “With the launch of our new Cancer Center, patients and their families can continue to count on us to provide comprehensive community-based cancer care, but in a more convenient location.”
