Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Wellstar Health System has enhanced our visitor policy as part of our commitment to providing a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every hospital is assigned a color reflecting its current visitation policy based on the number of active COVID-19 cases in each local community. The level of COVID-19 infections determines when and how many essential caregivers—patient advocates, family members and loved ones—can visit at this time.
We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to keep your loved one safe and healthy. If you have questions about the visitation policy, please call your local Wellstar hospital.
Positive COVID-19 case levels are ongoing or low. Two essential caregivers (visitors) are permitted in most areas from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
Positive COVID-19 case levels are elevated. No essential caregivers (visitors) are permitted in most areas.
Positive COVID-19 case levels are high. No essential caregivers (visitors) are permitted.

It seems "defeat" just isn't in John Cashen's vocabulary. A survivor in more ways than one, John has overcome not only a catastrophic natural disaster, but also fought cancer with unyielding resilience.
In 2005, as flood waters from Hurricane Katrina rose and threatened his New Orleans home, John took an axe to his attic's ceiling, climbed atop his roof and tied himself to his chimney so he wouldn't be swept away. Days later, no help had arrived, so John untied himself and swam to an overpass where he was rescued by a helicopter. He joined the rest of his family in Georgia.
Since then, John has become a proud citizen of LaGrange. A master of everything Mardi Gras, John runs a local krewe and is a natural at building parade floats from the foundation up. But when he was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2019, he summoned his fighting spirit, squared his shoulders, and faced his cancer journey head on.
