An adult, tertiary care facility, Emory University Hospital (EUH) has 579 licensed beds and is staffed by 1,221 Emory School of Medicine faculty physicians. It includes 93 intensive care unit beds, a 56-bed rehabilitation center, and a nine-bed clinical research center supported by the National Institutes of Health. Patients in fiscal year 2013: 25,302 admissions and 157,852 outpatient service visits. Staff employees: 3,676.
EUH has one of the most comprehensive transplant programs in the Southeast, and it is long known for services in cardiology, cardiac surgery, oncology, neurology/neurosurgery, and orthopaedics (see Emory University Othopaedics & Spine Hospital below). EUH is a “Magnet” hospital, recognized for its nursing excellence by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. For two years running, in both 2012 and 2013, the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) ranked EUH No. 2 for quality out of more than 110 academic medical centers nationwide. EUH has one of the highest case-mix indexes (a measure of complexity of illness treated) among these UHC-ranked facilities. Also in 2013 U.S. News & World Report ranked EUH the No. 1 hospital in both metro Atlanta and Georgia. For the 16th year in a row, Atlanta health care consumers named the hospital the Consumer’s Choice Award winner.
EUH is building a 210-bed, 450,000-square-foot bed tower scheduled to open in 2017.
