Wellness at the John B. Amost Cancer Center

Cancer is not just a medical problem; it can cause insult to one's psychological health and overall well-being.

With this in mind, we offer complementary therapies to enhance the outcome of traditional cancer treatment.  The Wellness Place makes a variety of therapies available to our patients, from stress reduction technique instruction to help with smoking cessation.  Support groups are also a part of the Wellness Place, as is individual therapy provided by a Licensed Social Worker. Our goal is to create the best possible outcome for each of our patients, regardless of the diagnosis.

For more information, call the number corresponding with the therapy or support group that you’re interested in or e-mail rubye.stafford@crhs.net.

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.
