Why Winship?

Winship Cancer Institute's Executive Director, Walter J. Curran, Jr., MD, explains "Why Winship?"

At Winship Cancer Institute, we are providing tomorrow's treatments today.

The Department of Radiation Oncology is part of the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. Through this affiliation, patients have access to multidisciplinary teams working together on cancer care, research, prevention and education throughout Emory University.

Why Winship? Because our dedicated teams are translating the latest breakthroughs in cancer research into the best treatments for you. Our hope is that one day, all cancer patients will enjoy a lifetime of survivorship.

There are a lot of reasons why we are unique, including:

We are part of an elite group of cancer centers.

Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University is Georgia's first and only cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

We are #1 in Georgia and a top ranked U.S. cancer center.

Emory University Hospital through Winship is the #1 ranked cancer hospital in Georgia and one of the top ranked hospitals in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report.

Not every doctor can treat every cancer, especially tumors that are rare or difficult to treat. We can. As part of Emory Healthcare, Georgia's largest health care system, we see difficult to treat cancers every day and have the depth and breadth of experience necessary to deliver the best treatments.

We have the most clinical trials.

As Georgia's first and only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, Winship Cancer Institute has over 250 active Phase I, II, and III clinical trials.
