East Cobb Health Park
The mission of WellStar Health System is to create and deliver high quality, compassionate, hospital, physician and other healthcare related services that improve the health and well-being of the individuals and communities we serve. In addition, WellStar's core values and beliefs include a commitment to innovation and creative thinking.
Consistent with our mission and core values, WellStar’s Health Parks initiative involves the development of community-based outpatient care centers to be strategically located for convenient access by our community. Each Health Park will be different in the services provided, but would contain some or all of the following: office space for primary care, pediatric and specialty physicians, outpatient surgery, diagnostic imaging and lab services, urgent care and primary care and specialty outpatient services such as cardiac, oncology, physical rehabilitation and women’s health. We also plan to focus on the overall health and wellness of the community, not only through clinical services, but also by providing services such as chronic disease management, complementary medicine, screenings, fitness programs and education. As you will read in the articles listed below, several healthcare experts believe in this innovative model of community care.
We believe that this innovative service model ultimately will improve healthcare access and convenience for the communities we serve, including our neighbors in East Cobb. In fact, according to a consumer survey of East Cobb residents in August 2010, 75-88% of respondents, depending on the type of service provided, thought that these services were very appealing.
WellStar also believes in working with the community to build and create this valuable asset to East Cobb. In fact, WellStar has been working with the East Cobb Health Park Advisory Committee, a group of more than 45 neighbors and business and community leaders, on this project since September 2010.
This web page was created to keep our community updated on the progress of this project.
