2014 CEO's Priorities
Grateful patients and friends who invest in Emory Healthcare support patient-centered care and pioneering translational research. Emory's bench-to-bedside approach speeds the development of new treatments from the laboratory to hospitals and clinics, where they improve care for patients.
Emory Healthcare's top fundraising priorities for 2014, according to CEO John Fox, are outlined below.
Improving access to the best care. From interdisciplinary teams to the most advanced electronic methods of interaction, Emory Healthcare is dedicated to strengthening our patient services and enriching the patient and family experience.
Focusing on clinical quality. We are committed to those we serve, and that includes providing advanced access to clinical trials, reducing waste, investing in our core facilities, and growing our programs of distinction, including:
- Heart and vascular health
- Transplant and regenerative medicine
- Child health
- Integrative information technology
Expanding our facilities. Increased private support helps Emory provide the highest-quality diagnostic tools, treatment modalities and rehabilitation efforts and enables the treatment of the most complex diseases. To create rooms with enough space to support modern technology and the training of future physicians and nurses, planning for a new acute care facility at Emory University Hospital is under way. With 210 beds, the new 450,000-square-foot building will provide state-of-the-art technology for optimal patient treatment and care. Completion of the building is projected for 2016.
