We're thankful for Ameris Bank's donation to Wellstar Sylvan Grove Hospital, helping us better serve our local community close to home when they need us the most.

Ameris Bank presented Wellstar Sylvan Grove Hospital and the Wellstar Foundation with a generous $25,000 donation earlier this month. Ameris Bank has contributed $75,000 in recent years to the hospital. Their support has helped rebuild and upgrade the hospital’s Emergency Room and radiology services, including the addition of both a state-of-the-art CT scanner and mobile X-ray machine. This has not only increased our detailed diagnostic capabilities, but has also improved comfort for our patients.

President Tamara Ison is thankful to Ameris Bank for their continued support of our hospital as well as their dedication to the health of the entire Butts County community.

‘It’s your life.’ Cancer patients urge others to keep doctor appointments amid COVID-19 pandemic

When Wellstar patient Jim Waddell was suddenly out of breath, he knew something was wrong and went to Dr. Steven Lenhard in Acworth right away. There, he was diagnosed with lymphoma. Jim is glad he didn't put off that visit to the doctor, because now he can start treatment sooner. "The worst thing is having something serious and not having it diagnosed."
Don't miss your cancer screenings — they could be life-saving. Wellstar is taking every precaution to keep our patients safe so they can get the treatment they need during the pandemic. Dr. Lenhard encourages patients to be proactive with their health, continue regular screenings and seek care if something feels wrong.
"If you put off the diagnosis, it's going to be harder to cure. It gives more chances to spread."
#SafeCare

According to the American Cancer Society, about 35% of Americans missed routine cancer screenings because of the pandemic.

Stay careful after your shot

I received my first pfizer vaccination on 1/25 at WellStar Cherokee health park. I was told I need to have a second dose on or about 2/15. I received an email a few hours later requesting me to make an appointment for that time. I went on my chart nd all I get is a message all appointments are taken. I cannot believe WellStar would give out the first dose without scheduling the second dose at that time. I now have no idea when or if I can receive my second dose. Someone needs to examine this issue instead of leaving patients not knowing if they will ever get the second dose.
😡😡😡 Have an appointment this week at Wellstar. Went on app and pressed appropriate "cancel" button. Pop up says call this number, so I called. One of the first lines of the answering message says to go to app to cancel, it will be faster and easier🤣. Then I waited on hold for 17 minutes and still spoke to no one. So mad. If you work at Wellstar, please cancel my ultrasound.
I am a Wellstar patient in Douglasville, Ga. I am almost 80 with stage 3 kidney failure, hypertension, throid disease and many more illnesses. I have been trying to go through my doctor, Charles Craton, for 3 weeks now plus many more health providers but I can not find a vaccine. I live alone and am fearful of how I would take care of myself if I was diagnosed with the virus. I have had to say at home since March of last year. Do you think you can help me find a vaccine? My name is Patricia Charles and my phone is 678 753 7502. Thank you
I just took my daughter to the Avalon location after signing up for the Rapid Covid test because she was exposed to someone who was positive. We drove 30 min to get there and then waited 1 hour past our scheduled appointment to then be told she couldn’t have the rapid test done. Very very frustrating experience
COVID-19 VACCINATIONS! Will Wellstar have the vaccine? When? What is the distribution plan; if & when you obtain the vaccine? Are you in the distribution for the Group 1A for essential medical staff and long term care facilities? Are you in the distribution plan for the Group 1B, other essential workers and patients over 65 with morbidity underlying conditions? I have called both my Primary Wellstar Providor and My Wellstar Pulmonary Providor to get answers regarding the Wellstar Protocol???? They have NO INFORMATION!??! I am 75 with serious Pulmonary issues and think I am in the Group 1B but how and where do obtain the vaccine? EMORY HAS A CONCISE Outline of their protocol by catagory on their website! What and When will Wellstar let YOUR patients know what and when to expect to be cared for in the regards to the COVID 19 vaccinations! Should we contact EMORY to insure we can obtain medical care?
