The John B. Amos Cancer Center

Welcome to the John B. Amos Cancer Center, a place where medical expertise and educational, emotional and spiritual support come together to treat the whole person, not just the disease.

The John B. Amos Cancer Center, the vision of the legendary founder and CEO of Aflac, takes a full-service, interdisciplinary approach to patient care. Doctors at the Cancer Center, called oncologists, may use surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or a combination of the three to treat your cancer. Our doctors also treat hematologic (blood) malignancies.

Oncology specialists and state-of-the-art technology combined with numerous services support our goal of providing the highest level of total care to this community and the region. The four clinics at the John B. Amos Cancer Center include Gynecologic Oncology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and Multi-Disciplinary.

Working on your behalf is a medical team of experienced board-certified oncologists (MDs), advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) and many others who will guide you through your treatment. Your team may also include additional physician specialists, clinical researchers, case manager associates, clinical counselors, pharmacists, radiation physicists and therapists, oncology- and chemotherapy-certified nurses and registered dietitians. And behind-the-scenes, administrative and clinical support staff ensure that your visit is timely and complete.

We’ll get to know each other during this process, and on behalf of our entire staff, we want to assure you that your health is our top concern. We’re here to answer your questions and to help make your healing time as comfortable as possible.

After all, you are the reason we do what we do.


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.
