As Saint Joseph’s Hospital moves forward in its new partnership with Emory Healthcare, new developments in the oncology department will allow Saint Joseph’s to collaborate with the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University to provide cancer care through Georgia’s only NCI-Designated Cancer Center.
Beginning June 1, radiation oncology services at Saint Joseph’s Hospital will be provided by Emory’s Department of Radiation Oncology under the medical direction of Peter Rossi, MD. Dr. Rossi will be joined by Shannon Kahn, MD, and the two radiation oncologists will be fully devoted to the radiation oncology patients at Saint Joseph’s. They will become part of Saint Joseph’s existing team of community physicians who provide oncology care to Saint Joseph’s patients.
Dr. Rossi is board certified in radiation oncology and is an assistant professor of radiation oncology at Emory University. He has been on the Emory faculty for five years and is considered an expert in the care of patients with many forms of cancer, including prostate cancer and gynecological cancer. He has significant experience in Gamma Knife® radiosurgery from his prior work at Wake Forest University.
Dr. Kahn is board certified in radiation oncology and returns to Emory after working in a private practice setting in the Atlanta area. She has a strong interest in breast, thoracic and hematologic malignancies.
