There is no better window to humanity than a hospital. Each day and night, patients and families arrive for help during their most vulnerable times, and Emory Healthcare is there to see them through. Everyone who cares about the health of a loved one—or the health of the larger community—can support Emory Healthcare in creating the most effective hospitals and clinics imaginable. Gifts help Emory Healthcare set a national standard for patient care. Gifts both large and small come from patients and families honoring their trusted Emory caregivers, from Emory physicians and nurses for whom health care is a great passion, and from concerned members of the community wanting to create a legacy of compassion and excellence.

2013 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 fund-raising priorities for 2013, according to CEO John Fox, are outlined below.
Build a patient care tower. 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.
Expand emergency care. Given growth projections of 25 percent to 41,000 emergency room encounters per year by 2018, the emergency department of Emory University Hospital requires an expansion. The envisioned new space will help the hospital alleviate crowding, meet increasing demand, and improve quality of care.
Support the Carlyle Fraser Heart Center. Increased private support will help Emory provide the highest quality diagnostic tools, treatment modalities, rehabilitation, patient care, and education regarding diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
