We have great news for our blog readers! Emory Healthcare & Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club announced a new partnership. We plan to build a first-of-its-kind training and sports medicine center on Executive Park Drive in Brookhaven.
About Emory Healthcare & Atlanta Hawks’ Facility
Emory Healthcare & Atlanta Hawks’ new facility will serve as the team’s official practice site. Also, it will feature advanced technology in sports medicine and athletic care. It will be built within a state-of-the-art training center with amenities. The team expects to break ground this summer on the 90,000-square-foot facility. The Hawks Basketball Operations Department will be housed in the facility upon its completion. Emory will become the official sports medicine provider of the Atlanta Hawks.
“When we became owners, one of our top priorities was to provide the resources necessary to build a world-class training facility—a key element of being a first-class franchise that consistently competes at the highest level. We are thrilled with the partnership that Steve and Bud have forged with Dr. Boden and the Emory team in developing a new facility that will be at the forefront of how professional teams approach integrating sports medical technology in their training centers,” Hawks Principal Owner Tony Ressler said. “It is a privilege to be partnering with a local institution that is a world leader in the medical field and that also shares our vision and passion for excellence. In addition, we are proud that this facility will go beyond benefitting just our players, but will also be a valuable sports medicine resource available to the entire community.”
The new facility will be the first in the NBA to be co-located with an entire sports medicine center. It allows for immediate treatment and on-site access to state-of-the-art equipment. Emory will leverage a part of the facility to offer preventative and rehabilitative treatment and sports performance training. Emory Sports Medicine Center will also make this new center its permanent home and treat patients inside the new facility.
What The New Facility Will Offer
Offerings at the new Emory Healthcare & Atlanta Hawks’ facility are set to include the following:
- 3D motion capture
- force plates to measure joint stress
- on-site blood and sweat testing
- analysis for nutritional deficits
- markers vital for the creation of individualized health and recovery plans
A fully dedicated recovery area including cryotherapy, sensory deprivation tanks and in-ground hydrotherapy will also be on-site. All non-sports orthopaedic specialties will continue to be located two blocks away at The Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center.
“This strategic partnership will enable two outstanding organizations to create a new vision for sports medicine care and research for athletes at the highest levels of their game and translate this knowledge to our college, high school, and weekend athletes,” said Scott D. Boden, MD, Director of The Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center and Chief Medical Officer of The Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital. “The addition of P3, the world renowned leader in peak performance enhancement, will make our facility and the city of Atlanta a destination for the most elite of athletes.”
P3 has been pioneering the use of advanced sports science technologies and front-edge applications in US pro sports. P3 specializes in quantifying athletic performance and developing precisely tailored training programs for elite athletes that boost individual performance and enhance career productivity.
Emory Healthcare is excited about the partnership to create this one-of-a-kind facility with the Atlanta Hawks and providing world-class care, treatment and training to athletes of all levels.
