Clifton Campus Expansion

Clifton Campus Expansion

If you’ve been on the Clifton Campus, you’ve noticed a lot of construction happening! The variety of projects taking place are preparing for the arrival of the new hospital tower, which will provide additional beds and clinical space on the Clifton Campus.

Details on the new bed tower

Proposed design

This patient- and family-centered facility, which we anticipate will open in 2017, includes:

  • 215 patient beds
  • 450,000 square feet and nine levels
  • Patient care units for cancer and transplant (liver, pancreas, kidney)
  • Diagnostic and treatment spaces
  • ICU rooms
  • General Med/Surg rooms
  • 500 underground parking spaces
  • A new pedestrian bridge concourse will connect EUH, Emory Clinic and the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University to the new building.

Assignment of Patient Care Units

  • Planning and design teams with representation from physicians, nurses, direct support care providers, administrators, and patient and family advisors have been regularly meeting for many months. 
  • To date, more than 100 individuals have participated in the array of standing and ad-hoc committees, as well as user group teams. These teams have provided tremendous input based upon the evaluation criteria, including enhancing the patient/family experience, optimizing operational efficiencies for clinical care teams, evaluating the necessary associations for spaces and related infrastructure, and considering unique space planning opportunities for our care models. 
  • After full consideration of input by these teams, the final recommendation for assignment of patient care units to specific levels of the J-wing was recently made to the EUH Expansion Program Executive Committee who unanimously approved the recommendation as follows (view a map below):
    • Level 9 –Bone Marrow Transplant
    • Level 8 – Hematology & Medical Oncology
    • Level 7 – Surgical Specialties, including Surgical Oncology, Urology, Gynecology and Gynecology Oncology
    • Level 6 – Solid Organ Transplant (kidney, liver and pancreas)
    • Level 5 (South) – Critical Care
    • Level 5 (North) – Unassigned
    • Level 4 - under development
    • Level 3 - under development
    • Level 2 - Food services and retail
    • Level 1 - Anesthesia Pre-op Clinic and Imaging
    • Underground parking
  • Assignment of patient care units to specific levels of the J-wing is a crucial step, not just for the J-wing, but also for re-programming of current EUH facilities and units. 
  • The next phase of programming, planning and phasing will occupy much of 2016.

New Building Concept

From the architect:

"The Emory University Hospital expansion project was envisioned to reflect the heritage and character of historic Emory University. At the same time, the new building will, in its contemporary detailing and modern elements, represent Emory University Hospital as a leader among health care institutions. The design evokes Emory's stately existing campus buildings, but with a contemporary style that reflects a vision toward the future."
