Center integrates critical care
A new Emory Center for Critical Care (ECCC) will integrate critical care services for patients across all Emory Healthcare facilities, meshing patient/family-centered care with research, education and training across the health sciences.

This newest Comprehensive Center from Woodruff Health Sciences Center joins heart and vascular, cancer, neurosciences and transplantation programs.

Timothy G. Buchman, surgery professor and director of the Section of Acute and Critical Care Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine, will be the founding director.

The ECCC will also create a new section of critical care in The Emory Clinic and provide educational and training experience for clinicians and scientists.
