Significant renovations are underway to enhance patient service offerings and improve overall flow for patients and staff on the first floor at the Clifton campus location of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University (Winship), Georgia's National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Construction started in September 2021. The renovations will bring several new amenities including a new multidisciplinary oncology clinic, a standalone integrative oncology clinic, and a dedicated cancer physical therapy and lymphedema space.
"We're thrilled to expand our patient service offerings at our Clifton campus location to better serve our growing patient population," says Suresh Ramalingam, MD, Winship's executive director. "With this renovation, we are continuing with our commitment to the Winship Way, an innovative patient centric approach to cancer care." Besides the clinics, the space when completed will have 25 additional clinic rooms and will provide for new breast oncology clinical space adjacent to the Emory Breast Imaging Center. The new space design will permit improved traffic flow through the first floor for patients, employees and visitors. Construction is expected to be completed by July 2022.
"We are so excited to have the opportunity to expand services as well as space at our Clifton location," says Katherine Wright, MPH, Winship's director of operations. "In this design, we have engineered spaces that can grow and flex to meet our future needs while continuing to offer advanced and novel care to our patients."
Winship is continuously working to grow and improve its facilities. Projects are currently underway with the Winship Emory Midtown, a new, uniquely designed 17-story facility next to Emory University Hospital Midtown set to open in 2023, and the new Rollins Immediate Care Center for oncology patients at Emory University Hospital to open in 2022.
