Winship head and neck cancer clinic opens in Midtown

The new 10,000-square foot head and neck cancer clinic on the 10th floor of the medical office tower at Emory University Hospital Midtown was designed based on the knowledge that patients do better when clinicians can interact and collaborate. The clinic brings together Winship's many doctors and support services specializing in head and neck cancer so patients can stay in one place and have multiple providers come to them during a single appointment.
