Sports complex

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and Emory Healthcare have announced plans to partner and build a first-of-its-kind training and sports medicine center on Executive Park Drive in Atlanta’s Brookhaven, which will serve as the team’s official practice site. The privately funded facility will feature advanced technology in sports medicine and athletic care, built within a state-of-the-art training center.

The team expects to break ground this summer on the 90,000-square foot facility, and the Hawks Basketball Operations Department will be housed in the facility upon its completion.

In addition to the naming rights entitlement of the training and sports medicine facility, Emory will become the official sports medicine provider of the team.

“Emory Healthcare has built outstanding orthopaedics services over the past decade, and we are excited to continue to grow this area and work closely with the Atlanta Hawks,” says Jonathan Lewin, president, CEO, and chairman of the board of Emory Healthcare. “Delivering on-site care not only will enable us to provide faster care to Hawks players, but also will enhance our ability to conduct sports performance research and translate what we learn to all athletes, both professional and recreational.”
