Winship Cancer Network affiliate Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) is launching "More Voices, More Victories," a multi-faceted campaign showcasing the collaboration with Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University (Winship). The campaign, aimed at helping the northeast Georgia community understand more about NGMC's Cancer Services affiliation, will start in July 2020 and include a combination of media leading with print and TV, as well as digital.
"We're honored to be affiliated with the elite level of care provided by Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University," says Carol Burrell, president and CEO of Northeast Georgia Health System. "This partnership brings together two of the top cancer programs in the region with a mutual goal of providing the best possible care and experience for our patients, right here in our community."
"We are pleased to be collaborating with our colleagues at NGMC in providing extraordinary care to their patients and connecting them to Winship's expertise and resources," says Winship Executive Director Walter J. Curran, Jr., MD, the Lawrence W. Davis Chair in Radiation Oncology and the Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and Chair in Cancer Research.
Based in Gainesville, Georgia, NGMC joined the Winship Cancer Network in 2019. The Winship Cancer Network brings together an elite group of community health systems and hospitals throughout Georgia and the Southeast with Winship, Georgia's National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. The network affiliation gives NGMC patients access to Winship's latest clinical trials and provides the opportunity for NGMC to collaborate with Winship on clinical research and education. With four hospitals in Gainesville, Braselton, Winder, and Dahlonega, Georgia, NGMC provides care for almost 3,000 new cancer patients each year. Cancer services at NGMC are accredited with commendation by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. NGMC is also a network member of Georgia NCORP, the state's National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program, which seeks to improve the quality of cancer care by advancing expertise in and access to clinical research.
