After receiving a $200 million gift from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University was able to open a new full-service cancer care center in Atlanta. Located on the Emory University Hospital Midtown campus, the new center will expand Winship’s oncology services there and bring them together into one building. The facility comprises 17 stories and more than 450,000 square feet on three acres.
Winship at Emory Midtown is built around patient needs and comfort, quality of care and workflow efficiencies. The care model brings outpatient and inpatient cancer care together in five “care communities” organized by type of cancer, with adjoining floors, shared living rooms and shared care teams of experts from multiple disciplines.
The building houses 80 inpatient beds and six operating rooms for both inpatient and outpatient procedures. Winship is in the process of hiring 600 new full-time employees, plus new physicians, to staff the new facility.
Some highlights of the new facility include:
Offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient cancer care, including radiation treatment, surgery, infusions, interventional radiology, diagnostics, imaging, clinical trials, dental oncology, cardio-oncology, oncology rehabilitation, integrative oncology, palliative care, genetic counseling and many other support and wellness services all under one roof
Features up to 24 private care suites per outpatient floor where specialized teams, diagnostics, treatments and support services will be brought to and center around the patient to deliver a personalized experience.
Winship at Emory Midtown is certified as a LEED Silver facility. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified buildings improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places.
