Cancer Community

The John B. Amos Cancer Center gives back to the community that built it.

The John B. Amos Cancer Center exists because of the hard work and generosity of thousands throughout our community and region.

Inspired by this community confidence and input, the John B. Amos Cancer Center provides onsite education and early detection programs, encourages adoption of healthy behaviors, and ensures far-reaching support for all members of the family. In addition to these programs, our cancer center hosts a number of support groups for cancer patients, family, and friends.

Funded through the Columbus Regional Health Foundation, the John B. Amos Cancer Center strives to provide our community with a wide variety of resources to encourage personal wellness.

As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
