Welcoming the Paces Plastic Surgery Center to the Emory Healthcare Family!

Paces Plastic Surgery Center Emory PartnershipAt Emory Healthcare we pride ourselves in developing and maintaining outstanding relationships with talented physicians and associates across Atlanta and the state of Georgia. As we continue our efforts to build partnerships to improve patient care, we’re happy to announce the acquisition of the plastic surgery practice of Roderick Hester, MD and Foad Nahai, MD, along with the Paces Plastic Surgery Center, located in Buckhead.

Both Dr. Hester and Dr. Nahai are associate professors of surgery of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Emory University’s School of Medicine.

“Emory Healthcare has a robust plastics and aesthetics practice that focuses primarily on reconstructive surgery,” says Donald Brunn, president and chief operating officer of The Emory Clinic. “This new endeavor will expand the scope of Emory’s clinical practice and will enable patients to receive a full range of coordinated, integrated aesthetics care and services under one comprehensive program and under one roof.”

Emory’s highly trained plastic surgeons provide a variety of surgical services to the Atlanta community, including breast reconstruction; ocular-plastics and ophthalmology; facial plastics and otolaryngology (including head and neck reconstruction) and hand and upper extremity reconstruction.

Our partnership with Dr Hester and Dr. Nahai will be finalized in Spring 2013, at which time the name of the Paces Plastic Surgery Center will change to Emory Aesthetics Center, and the practice will become part of The Emory Clinic’s Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The staff and physicians will continue to meet the highest quality standards and work from one electronic medical record and patient portal system to ensure seamless communications between patients and their physicians

“We look forward to this collaboration as we deliver outstanding services to our patients under the Emory brand,” says Hester. Hester and Nahai are considered by peers to be among the best of the nation’s aesthetic plastic surgeons.

“The benefits of this partnership include helping the center to grow and expand, while offering a wide range of services to patients by skilled health care providers,” Nahai explains.

About the Practice:
Dr. Roderick Hester founded what was then called Paces Plastic Surgery and Recovery Center in 1993. It remains one of the nation’s most comprehensive centers for the care of plastic surgery patients and features state-of-the-art clinical areas, operating rooms and over night recovery suites. The doctors at the Paces Plastic Surgery Center also offer an array of nonsurgical support and treatment services including CoolSculpting™, photofacials, hydrafacials, laser hair removal, facials, chemical peels and more.

Expanding Access to Top-Notch Health Care in Georgia Communities

Emory Healthcare Atlanta GeorgiaEvery day inside and outside of Emory facility walls our staff and care team members make it their priority to live our mission to serve humanity by improving health. That mission is carried out in obvious ways through the direct partnership between our patients and care team, but also in less obvious ways, by improving our community’s access to top quality patient-centered health care.

In late 2011, we improved access to everyday health care services by partnering with the CVS MinuteClinic to provide health care at 31 locations across the metro Atlanta area without an appointment. As we brought in the New Year, we welcomed the newest member of the Emory Healthcare family, Saint Joseph’s Hospital. Partnering with Saint Joseph’s means two of Atlanta’s leading health care organizations are now working in collaboration to bring an unparalleled level of health care and access to our Atlanta and Georgia communities.

Because the health care needs of our communities are constantly growing, we’ve taken another step to broaden access to the unparalleled level of care provided to the Emory Healthcare community. We have established an agreement to enter into negotiations for Emory to manage Southern Regional Health System that will integrate the Riverdale, Georgia health care network into our own.

These talks come at quite a momentous time for the Emory Healthcare community. While we work to improve access to top-notch health care in Georgia through a partnership with Southern Regional, we also move towards a relationship that will establish the facility as a hospital partner in Emory’s Clinically Integrated Network serving the Southern Crescent area.

The partnership between Southern Regional Health System and Emory Healthcare is an intuitive one, according to Southern Regional’s CEO, Jim Crissey, due to Emory Healthcare’s commitment to high quality care, its strong local presence, proven financial strength and solid reputation in the community.
“Our board is confident that Emory’s mission aligns closely with our own and our shared values will help us to form a successful partnership,” said CEO Crissey.  “Most importantly, a partnership with Emory Healthcare will preserve access to high quality care for the communities we serve,” he said.

We will be sure to keep you updated as discussions with Southern Regional progress here on our blog. If you have comments or feedback on this blog, please leave them for us and our readers in the comments below!

 

New Year, New Family – Saint Joseph’s Hospital Joins the Emory Healthcare Community

Emory Healthcare Saint Joseph's Hospital partnershipAs we bring in the New Year, we’re excited about all the new things on the horizon for Emory Healthcare and the many communities with whom we collaborate to provide high quality health care. We recently, for example, announced on our blog that we have partnered with the CVS MinuteClinic to provide health care at 31 locations across the metro Atlanta area without an appointment. That was very cool news for our community. Today though, we take great joy in being able to bring in the New Year with a huge announcement, and one that our community will truly benefit from in a major way– Emory Healthcare has now joined forces with Saint Joseph’s Hospital.

What does this mean for you? It means that two of Atlanta’s leading health care organizations are now working in collaboration to bring an unparalleled level of health care and access to our Atlanta and Georgia communities.

You may have heard us say before that we believe collaboration is truly the best medicine. Whether this means collaboration between patients and families to make informed decisions about their care with their care team members, or between organizations to improve the quality and access to care provided, we all benefit from collaborative communication and action. Our partnership with Saint Joseph’s Hospital will allow us to take collaboration around Atlanta health care to the next level.

The expertise in education and academic research that serves as the backbone of the technology and level of patient- and family-centered care provided at Emory Healthcare is mirrored by the level of excellence in local community health care we’ve seen from Saint Joseph’s from the very beginning.

We are so pleased to be able to kick off the New Year by bringing such a meaningful partnership to our community. Working with Saint Joseph’s Hospital means our patients and families will have even more access to the very best patient- and family-centered health care in Atlanta being driven by the leading academic research taking place at Emory. We hope you’re as excited about this news as we are! We’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback in the comments below. And if you’re interested in learning more, check out the resources below, including a blog post from the Saint Joseph’s team on what our partnership means to them. Happy New Year, everyone!
