New bed tower site approved for Emory University Hospital


Dear Woodruff Health Sciences Center Faculty and Staff:

I am delighted to report to you that the Emory University Board of Trustees approved earlier today the site for the new Emory University Hospital Bed Tower. The 210-bed tower will be located on Clifton Road in front of Emory Clinic Building B.

The Trustees also approved the expenditures needed to begin the planning, programming, and due diligence activities to support the bed tower and a number of enabling projects such as site preparation, utilities services, ingress/egress improvements, and parking enhancements.

We will share more details with you regarding this major facilities development initiative over the coming months. I know you share my enthusiasm for this project, and my appreciation to the Emory Trustees for their confidence in Emory Healthcare to make much-needed facilities upgrades that will support our many efforts to improve our patient safety, quality, and satisfaction.

We are also very thankful to the Woodruff Foundation for their support for this initiative.

Please share your thoughts and feedback at evphafeedback@emory.edu.
