Message from the Executive VP

Jonathan Lewin, executive VP for health affairs, executive director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center, and president, CEO, and board chair of Emory Healthcare.

I’m happy to announce that we recently expanded our partnership with the Atlanta Dream and the Atlanta Falcons, making Emory Healthcare the teams’ official health care provider, as we are for the Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Braves.

Indeed, it was exciting to be at the November opening of the first-of-its-kind, shared Emory Sports Medicine Complex and Hawks training facility (above, with Tony Ressler, principal owner of the Atlanta Hawks). We have become the health destination for everyone from pro athletes optimizing their game to weekend warriors recovering from strains and sprains. (See p. 10 for an inside look at the sports medicine complex.)

More broadly, for people in chronic or acute pain, the Emory Pain Center at Emory University Hospital Midtown and our pain medicine specialists can help (p. 22). With options beyond just pain medications, the interdisciplinary team works to create personalized plans to get people back to their active lives.

As always, with every issue of the Digest, we aim to inform, inspire, and make you say, “I didn’t know that.” Send us an email to let us know how we’re doing, and be well.
