Affiliates & Partners
Emory is affiliated with numerous key Atlanta and statewide institutions, including Grady Memorial Hospital, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Research Alliance, CDC, and more.
Grady Memorial Hospital
- 953 licensed beds
- Annual patient service visits: 35,923 admissions and 548,228 outpatient service visits
- Staffed by 774 Emory medical faculty
- In addition, 368 Emory residents and fellows provide care at Grady under supervision of the faculty.
- Together, these Emory physicians provide about 80% of care at Grady, with the other 20% provided by Morehouse School of Medicine and Grady-employed physicians.
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory facilitate leading-edge pediatric research, training, and innovation in order to deliver the best possible outcomes for patients and families. In 2018, that collaboration resulted in the launch of the Emory + Children's Pediatric Institute, notable for its research and for training pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists, both which are in short supply in the United States. Emory's Department of Pediatrics ranks third in the nation in NIH funding.
- Children's at Egleston, 330 beds (Emory campus). Annual patient totals: 11,532 admissions and 363,389 outpatient service visits. Staffed by 302 Emory faculty physicians, with Emory clinicians providing 95% of care.
- Children's at Hughes Spalding, 24 beds (Grady Hospital campus). Annual patient totals: 941 admissions and 97,272 outpatient service visits. Staffed by 88 Emory physicians and by private practice and Morehouse School of Medicine physicians, with Emory clinicians providing more than 75% of care.
- Children's at Scottish Rite, 319 beds (north Atlanta). Annual patient totals: 14,345 admissions and 377,027 outpatient service visits; all Emory pediatric physician faculty teach and have admitting privileges here.
Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center
- 466 hospital beds, including 273 medical/surgical beds, 120 community living center beds, a 61-bed domiciliary, and 12 psychosocial residential rehabilitation beds
- Annual patient totals: 8,875 admissions and 1,495,469 outpatient service visits
- Staffed by 320 Emory physicians, providing the majority of patient care
- Georgia Clinical and Translational Science Alliance (GCTSA)
Emory is the lead partner in the Georgia CTSA, a consortium funded by the NIH and created to translate laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, engage communities in clinical research efforts, and train the next generation of clinical investigators. Other Georgia CTSA academic partners include Morehouse School of Medicine, Georgia Institute of Technology, and University of Georgia.
- U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Emory and CDC have a number of research contracts and consulting partnerships. For example, Emory University Hospital’s Serious Communicable Diseases Unit, where the first patients in the U.S. with Ebola virus disease were treated, was built in collaboration with CDC. Emory faculty serve as advisers on public health committees throughout CDC, and CDC officers frequently serve as adjunct faculty in Emory’s schools of public health and medicine.
Winship Cancer Institute works with Georgia CORE to partner with community-based physicians to make more clinical trials of new cancer treatments available to patients throughout the state.
- Georgia Institute of Technology
Emory and Georgia Tech share a joint biomedical engineering department ranked second in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The two institutions also collaborate on initiatives in nanotechnology, vaccine delivery, clean air and water, health services research, regenerative medicine, bioinformatics, neurosciences, pediatrics, medical devices, immunoengineering, robotics, and design of “smart” equipment and facilities to help the elderly and disabled.
- Georgia Research Alliance (GRA)
The GRA is a partnership of business, research universities, and state government that fosters economic development. Through the GRA, the state invests in Emory eminent scholars and research in nanotechnology, cancer, pediatrics, screening for new drugs, vaccines, AIDS and other infectious diseases, immunology, transplantation, clinical trials, bioinformatics, autism, imaging, cystic fibrosis, addiction, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease.
- Morehouse School of Medicine
Emory’s School of Medicine partners with Morehouse in serving patients at the publicly owned Grady Memorial Hospital and in training Morehouse residents. The two schools are also partners in research through the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance (see above) and other research initiatives.
- University of Georgia
In addition to Emory's partnership with University of Georgia in the Georgia CTSA (see above), the two institutions collaborate in the NIH-sponsored Emory-UGA Center of Excellence for Influenza Research, part of a five-center national network tasked with improving pandemic preparedness. Emory, Georgia Tech, and UGA are partners in the Regenerative Engineering and Medicine center, which focuses on how the body can harness its own potential to heal.
