The Cancer Center at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital offers a large array of programs for the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of cancers. In weekly conferences, a multi-disciplinary team of physicians and ancillary medical personnel review all aspects of a patient’s case including pathology, imaging studies, medical histories and more. The team then makes a treatment recommendation based on national guidelines but tailored, as necessary, to the individual patient. Our center’s physician team consists of eight oncologists, 3 radiation oncologists and a surgical oncologist. All of our physicians are Board-Certified.
The Phoebe Cancer Center is one of the largest in the Southwest and has a long standing tradition of delivering compassionate and comprehensive cancer care. The satellite locations of the Phoebe Cancer Center allows patients in our region to have the same level of care that the Phoebe Cancer Center is known for – with the convenience of their local community hospitals. Oncology and hematology treatments are available in Albany, Americus, Cordele and Sylvester.
