Emory breaks ground on 17-story cancer center

Atlanta-based Emory University Hospital Midtown and its Winship Cancer Institute broke ground Nov. 12 on a 17-story facility that will focus on cancer care.

The nearly $500 million, 450,000-square-foot facility will consolidate cancer services into one location to improve patient experience.

The building will house clinical research, infusion facilities, clinical examination rooms and spaces for rehabilitation.

It is expected to have 64 inpatient beds, 26 observation beds and six operating rooms.

The building is funded in part by a $400 million gift from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, which  focuses on improving cancer care throughout the U.S.

"This state-of-the-art facility will enable Winship to further fulfill its mission of lessening the burden of cancer in Georgia," said Walter Curran, Jr., MD, executive director of Winship. "The design of the building aligns with 'The Winship Way,'a project that takes a fresh look at cancer care, with an eye toward better integration and streamlining of services, while delivering innovative research-based treatment and individualized care."
