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.
“Since WellStar first opened a health park in Acworth three years ago, our community has embraced the health park concept and the convenience it provides,” said Candice Saunders, president & CEO of WellStar Health System. “Over 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.”
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 Park’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 park’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.
