75 years of caring 
Winship Cancer Institute started with a love story. It is a story full of love for a woman named Emily Winship Woodruff and her family—and compassion and concern for all Georgians with cancer.

Winship Continues to Serve and Grow
After several decades of providing first-rate cancer care, Winship received an infusion of energy and resources in the late 1990s that, once again, had the hand and heart of Robert W. Woodruff in it.

Teamwork by the dozens
The head and neck cancer program takes teamwork to an entirely new level, hitting one of Georgia’s most prevalent cancers.

To survive and to thrive 
Survivorship means adapting to a new normal. Winship is there to help survivors stay well. 

Targeting a mean mutation 
Good guys are focusing on the bad guys in lung cancer.

Winship Way

Making the right choice
