Clifton Campus Expansion Project

Clifton Campus Expansion

If you’ve been on the Clifton Campus, you’ve noticed a lot of construction happening! The variety of projects taking place are preparing for the arrival of the new hospital tower, which will provide additional beds and clinical space on the Clifton Campus. Keep checking this site for the latest updates on our buidling progress, upcoming projects and photos. Interested in learning about the guiding principles for the project? Click here!

Also, read the J-Wing, Building our future together EUH Expansion newsletter for insights into the project. The May 2016 edition answers your most frequently asked questions surrounding the construction of the J-Wing hospital bed tower. When will the building open? What will be in the building? What will be the dining options? All these questions are answered and more! You can find your copy to download under the EUH Expansion newsletter box on the right of your screen!

EUH valet and ED entrance building facade construction

As we continue with our J-Wing expansion project, our next phase of construction is now taking place on the EUH side of Clifton Road. This phase includes the removal and redesign of the façade along the front of EUH (orange section marked with A in the photo) and the construction of a barrier wall in the valet area (orange section marked with B in the photo). The façade will be reconstructed to mirror the design of the new sky bridge and J-Wing bed tower. The barrier wall, which will protect both the construction workers and the valet area, will be erected by Tuesday, May 31, and will remain up through façade construction completion, anticipated for Spring 2017. On the inside of the second floor gift shop corridor (between the hospital lobby and gift shop), the area will be protected with plywood on the windows.

You will notice a visual change to the area, but patient and staff flows will remain unchanged. The second floor interior corridor and both valet lanes will remain open during construction.

During the construction, in order to maximize service to patients and visitors, please do not use the valet service but park in your designated parking area.

We anticipate minimal noise and vibration disruption; however, if you experience any issues, please contact 404-712-CARE.

Assignment of Patient Care Units

  • Planning and design teams with representation from physicians, nurses, direct support care providers, administrators, and patient and family advisors have been regularly meeting for many months. 
  • To date, more than 100 individuals have participated in the array of standing and ad-hoc committees, as well as user group teams. These teams have provided tremendous input based upon the evaluation criteria, including enhancing the patient/family experience, optimizing operational efficiencies for clinical care teams, evaluating the necessary associations for spaces and related infrastructure, and considering unique space planning opportunities for our care models. 
  • After full consideration of input by these teams, the final recommendation for assignment of patient care units to specific levels of the J-wing was recently made to the EUH Expansion Program Executive Committee who unanimously approved the recommendation as follows (view a map below):
    • Level 9 –Bone Marrow Transplant
    • Level 8 – Hematology & Medical Oncology
    • Level 7 – Surgical Specialties, including Surgical Oncology, Urology, Gynecology and Gynecology Oncology
    • Level 6 – Solid Organ Transplant (kidney, liver and pancreas)
    • Level 5 (South) – Critical Care
    • Level 5 (North) – Unassigned
    • Level 4 - Under development
    • Level 3 - Under development
    • Level 2 - Food services and retail
    • Level 1 - Anesthesia Pre-op Clinic and Imaging
    • Underground parking
  • Assignment of patient care units to specific levels of the J-wing is a crucial step, not just for the J-wing, but also for re-programming of current EUH facilities and units.
  • The next phase of programming, planning and phasing will occupy much of 2016.

The patient- and family-centered facility includes:

-210 patient beds

-450,000 square feet and nine levels

-Patient care units for cancer and transplant (liver, pancreas, kidney)

-Diagnostic and treatment spaces

-ICU rooms

-General medical/surgery rooms

-500 underground parking spaces

-A new pedestrian bridge concourse will connect EUH, Emory Clinic and the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University to the new building.
