Georgia cancer institute opens state's 1st immediate care cancer center

Atlanta-based Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University opened the first immediate cancer care center in Georgia on April 18, it said in an email to Becker's.

The Rollins Immediate Care Center is staffed with trained oncology specialists to care for patients experiencing symptoms or side effects. Winship piloted the concept in 2020 through the creation of a separate immediate care area to see and treat cancer patients who had been exposed to COVID-19, or suspected they had been.

"With advancements made in cancer research, the model for cancer care delivery is advancing too," said Matt Wain, CEO of Emory University Hospital. "Specialized immediate care dedicated to the needs of patients with cancer is the model of the future, and we're bringing that model to our patients at Emory University Hospital through The Rollins Immediate Care Center of Winship."
