Emory is Expanding!

Emory Facility MovesYou may be surprised to see some new construction at The Emory Clinic (TEC).  Construction began on Friday, April 27, 2012, to improve patient access to Buildings A, B and the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University (Building C) in anticipation of construction of the planned Emory University Hospital bed tower.  The project, which will mostly affect the valet area next to Buildings A and Winship, will add lanes to make valet parking easier and faster and improve self-parking by creating an elevated, “conditioned” (heated and cooled) bridge from the main Hospital/Clinic parking deck to TEC  Buildings A and B, as well as leading to the hospital. Pedestrians will no longer have to compete with cars that are trying to enter the valet area in front of Building A.

If you are a patient and have a clinic appointment in TEC  Buildings A or B, please give yourself a few extra minutes to get to your appointment as pedestrian traffic will be slightly rerouted during the construction period.  Please continue to park in the main Hospital/Clinic parking deck.  If you have a hard time walking, we encourage you to take advantage of the valet parking options still open and available next to Building A.

If you are visiting Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, please consider using the Uppergate valet parking area to avoid the traffic.

Visit for the latest exciting news on the expansion of Emory Healthcare.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but know you will be thrilled when the project is completed.

Site Approved for New 200+ Bed Hospital Tower in Atlanta

New Emory Hospital Tower in AtlantaIf you’ve ever taken a drive down Clifton Road, you’re familiar with our hospital and clinic facilities in the area. Ranging from Emory University Hospital, to the Emory Clinic, to the Winship Cancer Institute, or our additional clinic facilities down the street at 1525 Clifton. We’ll be adding yet another health care facility to our Clifton Road headquarters; this time, a 200+ bed hospital tower, complete with new operating rooms and emergency room.

The new Emory hospital tower will be located right across from Emory University Hospital on Clifton Road. This new development is not the only upgrades you’ll be seeing at Emory. The Emory-Children’s Pediatric Research Center (a partnership between Emory Healthcare and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta) is scheduled to be completed in April of 2013, and will be located near our other Clifton facilities, off of Haygood Drive.

The new bed tower is an important piece that will help us provide better access to our patients in our community environment. We are very excited about the ways the new hospital tower will enable us to build on our efforts to further improve the care we deliver.

These new facilities will create opportunities for improved access, patient safety and enhanced efficiency, which benefit our Emory Healthcare patients, families and the skilled members of our patient and family care teams.

We’ll keep you posted here on our blog about developments with the hospital tower and other facility enhancements being made here at Emory Healthcare.

Quality and Convenience at the Pharmacy at Emory

Pharmacy at Emory

We’re always looking for ways to make things easier for our patients and families here at Emory. Back in May, for example, we made filling and picking up prescriptions that much easier by opening the doors to our new Pharmacy at Emory. The Pharmacy’s location at the Emory Clinic means added convenience for our patients. It also means we get to see lots of patients, family members and staff each day.  Thankfully, they’ve been keeping us very busy! Since the Pharmacy’s opening 10 months ago, we’re filling over 100 prescriptions per day at the new pharmacy.

In the spirit of patient ease, we’re adding two new features to boost convenience at the pharmacy- online refills and our new bedside delivery program.

Online Refills

Beginning today, patrons of the pharmacy can visit: and refill their prescriptions online before they come to see us.

Bedside Delivery Program

For patients of  Emory University Hospital and the Winship Cancer Institute Infusion Center, medications from the Pharmacy at Emory can be delivered directly to patient rooms between the hours of 9am-5pm.

It’s our hope that these two convenience additions to the Pharmacy at Emory give our patients, families, visitors, and Emory community members even more reasons to fill their prescriptions while on-site.

Pharmacy FAQs

If you’re curious about what else is happening at the pharmacy to make things easy on our patients, here are a few fun facts below:

  • We fill prescriptions from both Emory and non-Emory practitioners. So even if you’re not a patient of Emory, but the pharmacy’s location is convenient for you, we’re here to help!
  • We accept all major insurance plans.
  • We offer a full array of generic and branded medications. Medication pricing at the Pharmacy is competitive and comparable to prices you’ll see elsewhere.
  • We keep a full stock of general health and wellness supplies. If you’re on-site and need to pick up supplements or bandaids, for example, stop on by!

We’ll keep you posted on all the latest happenings with the Pharmacy as they develop. We hope to see you there soon!

Emory Clinic Opens a New On-Site Pharmacy

With the goal of constantly improving the patient experience, Emory Healthcare has taken another positive step in improving patient convenience and wait times. For the hundreds of patients visiting the Emory Clinics daily, there is now a more central location for them to fill and pick up their prescription medications– right onsite! The new Emory Pharmacy, located on the Second Floor of the Emory Clinic, Building A is scheduled to open to patients and the Emory community on May 25th.

The new outpatient pharmacy will offer the typical array of prescription medications that you’d see at your local pharmacy and will also provide a variety of less typical medications that are commonly prescribed to cancer and transplant patients at Emory Healthcare. Over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and general wellness supplies will also be provided at this new pharmacy location.
