The following is text originally appearing in Emory Healthcare's Advancing Your Health blog:
As our Emory Healthcare family continues to grow, so too does our ability to provide Atlanta and Georgia residents access to more top health care providers. Atlanta magazine's July 2017 Top Doctors issue features the annual listing of Top Doctors in the metro Atlanta area. We are proud to announce that of all the health systems represented in the list, Emory physicians make up half of the doctors – 50% of 2017 Atlanta Top Doctors to be exact.
These physicians include those who practice at one of our six hospitals and over 200 provider locations, as well as those who hold faculty positions at the Emory University School of Medicine.
We honor, celebrate and thank all of our 2017 Atlanta Top Doctors—and their amazing care teams—for providing outstanding care to our patients and families, and for truly making patient- and family-centered care their priority each day. Congratulations to you all!
And with our expanding footprint, communities all over Georgia have access to more Emory top doctors. Big or small, major or minor, if you have a reason to seek medical care, there is an Emory Healthcare facility and an Emory Healthcare Network physician close to home.
To compile the annual "Top Doctors" list, Castle Connolly uses a survey and research process involving tens of thousands of top doctors across America and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. Atlanta's top doctors are selected after peer nomination, extensive research, careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. Atlanta magazine uses the research by Castle Connolly to provide detailed information about education, training and special expertise of Atlanta doctors. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly "Top Doctors."
The Emory Healthcare Network is a clinically integrated network through which we provide access to coordinated patient- and family-centered care. With six hospitals, over 200 provider locations and 2,000 physicians in more than 70 specialties, the Network delivers care through a full range of hospitals, clinics and local practices, including more than 120 primary care locations, over 20 urgent care locations, and 38 MinuteClinics.
The network joins Emory-employed and private practice physicians in communities throughout metro Atlanta and the state, in collaboration with Emory Healthcare, into a single comprehensive care management system.
