As the largest cancer network across Georgia, our patients do not have to travel far for our powerful combination of cancer expertise, treatment facilities and support resources. We offer on-site state-of-the art diagnostic molecular testing, flow cytometry and dedicated disease site pathologists, and our medical oncologists are national leaders in advanced cancer treatment and research. 

Patients with certain forms of blood cancers have access to our nationally recognized Leukemia Program and  Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program at Northside Hospital (NH-BMT). These programs operate with highly experienced and specialty trained physicians and staff. Additionally, bone marrow transplant patients benefit from early access to donor searches and a seamless transition to our Blood & Marrow Transplant Program.
