Emory Healthcare community impact

Emory Healthcare, serves our community and advances the future of health care. Through community partnerships, patient-focused care and innovative research, we improve health care in Georgia and across the globe.

Charitable care

We offer unparalleled care to every patient, regardless of their ability to pay. We provide almost $50 million of charity care to patients facing severe illness or financial hardship each year. Our doors are open to the almost 1.7 million Georgians without health insurance who need help.

Community partnerships

Emory Healthcare teams up with organizations throughout Georgia to offer affordable care.

Urgent Care

Do you have a non-life-threatening medical condition or injury that requires immediate medical attention? You might be thinking: “Do I go to urgent care or a walk-in clinic? Do I visit my primary care physician or emergency room?” The Emory Healthcare Network partners with CVS MinuteClinic, Peachtree Immediate Care, and Smartcare® Urgent Care to give you the immediate care you need. Combined, our urgent care and retail clinic partners provide nearly 60 locations throughout metro Atlanta and surrounding counties. This puts immediate care where you need it, 7 days a week for most of the year.

Choosing a retail clinic or urgent care provider instead of the emergency room can save you time and money when you’re not feeling well, and you can’t wait for an appointment with your primary care physician. Not sure where to go? Follow our guide to make the right choice.
