Where on Labor Day can you find teams of experts collaborating in high-pressure situations, a fast-paced environment, and neon lights? There are two places that come to mind immediately– the Atlanta Motor Speedway and Emory Healthcare’s community of hospitals and care providers. That’s why it only makes sense that this year Emory Healthcare is the title sponsor of Atlanta Motor Speedway’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, a night race event titled the “Emory Healthcare 500.”
The Emory Healthcare 500 is the first event of its kind that Emory Healthcare has chosen to sponsor, due in part to the unique opportunity it presents us to support the local community, Emory patients and physicians. As President and CEO of Emory Healthcare, John T. Fox, notes, “it is a unique opportunity to support the local communities that work so hard to host and operate one of the nation’s premier sporting events each year. It is also a chance to support and thank the many valued patients and physicians in the Henry County and Southern Crescent region who allow Emory to serve them for cutting-edge medical care.”
Keeping with the theme of supporting the local community, Emory Healthcare staff will be on-site to provide health screenings and educational information for race fans, visitors, and community members alike. Additionally, Emory Healthcare is also the new official health care provider of the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
We anticipate seeing many members of both the Emory Healthcare and Georgia communities on Labor Day at the Emory Healthcare 500 and we look forward to a great weekend and the opportunity to continue to serve our community with excellence in patient centered health care.
