The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and Emory Healthcare are to break ground on a new, state-of-the-art training facility and sports medicine center in Brookhaven, Georgia on Friday, June 24. The privately-funded, 90,000ft² facility will feature the most advanced technology in sports medicine and athletic care, integrating four facilities.
In addition to the naming rights entitlement for the training and sports medicine facility, Emory will become the official sports medicine provider of the team.
The new facility will be the first in the NBA to be co-located with an entire sports medicine center, enabling expert and immediate treatment and on-site access to state-of-the-art equipment such as the 3 Tesla MRI scanner. Emory will utilize roughly 30,000ft² to offer comprehensive preventative and rehabilitative treatment and sports performance training.
The entire roster of doctors, surgeons and specialists from Emory’s current Sports Medicine Center will also make Brookhaven its permanent home and treat patients inside the new facility.
HOK was hired for the architectural design, while Atlanta-based construction and management firm HJ Russell & Company will serve as the project management team.
