WellStar recently opened an Outpatient Surgery Center at the WellStar East Cobb Health Park, providing a convenient location for surgeries that do not require a hospital stay.
â€œSince WellStar first opened a health park in Acworth three years ago, our community has embraced the health park concept and the convenience it provides,â€ said Candice Saunders, president & CEO of WellStar Health System. â€œOver the next decade, we expect to see outpatient services continue to grow. WellStar will continue to meet the healthcare needs of our communities through innovative solutions and world-class healthcare.â€
The surgery center includes 20 private, prep/recovery rooms, three operating room suites and three procedure rooms. The center also provides onsite pathology support, a private patient discharge elevator and covered pick-up area separate from the Health Parkâ€™s main entrance.
The 162,000-square-foot WellStar East Cobb Health Park opened in September 2014, bringing primary and specialty physician offices together with comprehensive diagnostics, laboratory services, rehabilitation therapy, urgent care, a retail pharmacy, and now, an Outpatient Surgery Center.
The health parkâ€™s physician mix includes family physicians, internal medicine, pediatrics and OB/GYN services. Specialty areas include cardiology, pulmonology, ENT, neurosurgery, pain management, chiropractic care, vascular surgery, general surgery, allergy/asthma, endocrinology, urology and orthopedics. Rheumatology will be added in August.
