Emory Healthcare's Quality Mission

Why Quality MattersHigh quality health care provided in a safe, patient- and family-centered environment is the foundation of Emory Healthcare’s mission.

At Emory Healthcare, we’re committed to transparency in communications with our patients, recognizing your right to be informed about all aspects of your care, treatment and service. Essential to this transparency is a commitment to truthful and prompt disclosure to patients and families of any adverse outcomes or unintended occurrences associated with treatment, and to provide the appropriate and effective follow-up assistance when needed.

Emory provides patients the care you would expect from specialists affiliated with a major, nationally recognized academic medical and research center. Similar to other top-ranked hospitals in the country, which treat the sickest patients, Emory is Georgia’s “medical safety net” — the place where other hospitals send their patients with the most serious and complex health issues. Last year, Emory doctors were responsible for more than 3.6 million patient visits (up 9 percent from the previous year), which represents a substantial portion of all health care in Atlanta. When your life is on the line and you’re making a decision about which hospital is best for you, we hope you’ll consider the reasons why Emory is the right choice.

Sincerely,
John T. Fox
CEO and President of Emory Healthcare
