Emory Winship Oculus

About this project

The high rise Winship Emory Midtown features 80 inpatient beds, fourteen surgical suites, interventional radiology including four LINACs, various imaging modalities, central sterile, materials management, and on-demand food service. The eighteen story tower includes over 140 outpatient exam rooms, a central plant expansion, a 450-vehicle parking deck, a shelled floor, and a two-story pedestrian bridge linking the cancer center with the general hospital. Additionally, the building includes a retail boutique and pharmacy, active-use spaces, a café, wellness center, and a rooftop garden on the lower roof for dining and events.

With top-notch specialists, the most advanced infrastructure, and a vision to provide personalized care to patients, the complex revolutionizes cancer care in Georgia and beyond. The facility is organized around “care communities” that serve as one-stop destinations combining exam, consultation, infusion, and supportive functions and create communities tailored to each patient’s journey.

This project is pursuing LEED Silver certification and targeting an Energy Use Intensity (EUI) of 125. With this ambitious EUI Goal, the hospital will expend nearly 40% less energy annually than the average hospital in Atlanta. Sustainable features include a heat recovery chiller, chilled beams with DOAS for the inpatient and outpatient spaces in the tower, advanced controls, low fan energy design, high-efficiency lighting and controls,  an envelope optimized for light and performance, rainwater harvesting for cooling tower make up water, and provisions for electric vehicle charging stations.
