Emory Healthcare, Georgia Tech Athletics form multi-year partnership

Through a new multi-year partnership agreement between Emory Healthcare and Georgia Tech Athletics, Emory Healthcare will become the “Official Healthcare System” for all Yellow Jacket sports.

The partnership builds on and expands the existing 11-year relationship between the Emory Sports Medicine Center and Georgia Tech Athletics.

The agreement with Georgia Tech and ISP Sports, the exclusive multimedia rights holder for Tech Athletics, will provide Emory Healthcare with extensive media exposure, including radio and television sponsorships, highly visible signage in Tech’s three major campus venues, and prominent advertising in Yellow Jacket sports publications and on the school’s official athletics website,

"We have assembled a team of health care professionals at Emory who, when consulted, understand the unique needs of these seasoned athletes,” says John W. Xerogeanes, chief of the Emory Sports Medicine Center, head orthopaedist and team physician for all Georgia Tech athletic teams.

“We are prepared for the special challenges associated with their injuries, conditions, and strength and rehabilitation requirements as we work to help improve performance and help get these young men and women back on the field of competition.” he says.

In addition to its affiliation in sports medicine, Emory  has longstanding research partnerships with Georgia Tech in biomedical engineering, regenerative medicine, infectious diseases, predictive health and nanotechnology.
