If you’ve visited Emory University Hospital (EUH) or Emory Clinic on Clifton Road, you’ve noticed a lot of changes happening! Several construction projects are taking place to prepare for the arrival of a new hospital tower, which will provide additional beds and clinical space on the Clifton Campus.
The new bed tower will be patient- and family-centered facility, which we anticipate will open in 2017. It will include:
- 210 patient beds
- 450,000 square feet and nine levels
- Patient care units for cancer and transplant (liver, pancreas, kidney)
- Diagnostic and treatment spaces
- ICU rooms
- General Medical/Surgical rooms
- 500 underground parking spaces
- A new pedestrian bridge concourse that will connect EUH, Emory Clinic and Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University to the new building
With some services relocating to the new tower, services currently at Emory University Hospital will relocate to newly renovated space in the existing EUH location. The Emergency Department at EUH will remain in its recently expanded location.
What’s been accomplished?
Access to and around EUH and Emory Clinic buildings has already been improved due to the completion of the following projects:
- Reconfiguration of Woodruff Circle to centralize shuttle pickup/drop-off areas, which eased traffic congestion by removing 500+ shuttles per day off of Lowergate Drive
- EUH Emergency Department expansion and renovation, which now boasts 34 beds in an 18,300 square-foot space
- Third floor EUH operating room expansion and renovation
- EUH valet improvements that doubled the size of the operation
- Build out of new Admissions and Care Initiation Unit on the 2nd floor of EUH
- Reconfiguration of the Emory Clinic valet area, which provides better traffic flow, coverage for patients waiting for their cars, a spacious lobby, better wayfinding and a covered pedestrian bridge from the parking deck.
