Emory University Hospital

Staffed exclusively by Emory University School of Medicine faculty who also are members of the Emory Clinic, Emory University Hospital is one of the nation’s leading hospitals in cardiology and heart surgery, cancer, neurology and more. In 2014, Emory University Hospital achieved Magnet® recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a reflection of its nursing professionalism, teamwork, and superiority in patient care. The hospital received its second Magnet designation in 2018. In May 2023, Emory University Hospital is applying for re-designation as a Magnet organization. To Serve Humanity by Improving Health through integration of education, discovery and health care. Emory University Hospital’s tradition of healing dates back almost a century. In March 1904, our predecessor, Wesley Memorial Hospital, was chartered with 50 beds. The hospital was housed in a downtown Atlanta mansion that had been spared from destruction by General Sherman’s army during the Civil War. By November 1922, the hospital had grown too large for its quarters and moved to its current DeKalb County site on the Emory University campus. The new 275-bed facility was a gift of Asa G. Candler, philanthropist and founder of The Coca-Cola Company.

ESG/Ethical Impact

Emory continued to make progress on its 2025 Sustainability Vision goals to reduce energy use per square foot (EUI) by 50 percent and overall energy consumption by 25 percent by 2025. From a 2015 baseline, in 2019 Emory achieved an EUI reduction of 9.4% and a total energy use reduction of 8.7%. Emory also targets to reduce potable water consumption 50% by 2025 and has made great progress through the first four and a half years operating its WaterHub. Emory is committed to self-generating 10% of energy needed on campus, and currently has installed over 1.36MW of solar and co-generation. The 2025 total energy use reduction goal of 25% challenges Emory to reduce energy consumption while also meeting its current building expansion plans. The design and construction standards for new buildings, with a LEED Silver minimum requirement, have contributed to the EUI goal to date. In addition to energy efficiency in new construction, renovations, recommissioning, LED lighting upgrades, Emory’s Sustainability Revolving Loan Fund projects, and participation in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Smart Labs Accelerator program have all pushed Emory forward toward our ambitious goals. eaching Emory’s ambitious energy reduction goals requires continuous process improvement, innovative energy reduction strategies, and detailed monitoring of building energy performance across campus. A team of Emory University students, faculty and staff continue to identify ways to reduce the energy and water needs of Emory University and engage campus in these conservation efforts. This Energy and Water Task Force keeps a running list of potential energy conservation measures that are continuously evaluated for implementation. There are currently 38 projects identified across campus with a payback of 5 years or less. In 2019, five projects from this list were completed, including the upgrade of fume hoods in the O. Wayne Rollins building to variable air volume and installation of LEDs in the Oxford Road parking deck.
