Details unveiled for Winship Cancer Institute Tower at Midtown

Thanks to a generous gift by the Woodruff Foundation, construction on a new Winship Cancer Institute tower at Emory University Hospital Midtown will start later this year with completion expected in 2023. The building is proposed to be 17 stories tall, with 455,000 square feet of space. This facility will enable Winship to further fulfill its mission of lessening the burden of cancer in Georgia in alignment 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.
