Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta plans to revitalize facilities at its Children’s at Hughes Spalding campus. Children’s hopes to break ground on the facility at Children’s at Hughes Spalding in the late Spring of 2008 with completion by late 2009. While the facility is still owned by Grady Health System, Children’s assumed management of this pediatric facility in 2006.
Children’s has identified several areas of focus for the future of Children’s at Hughes Spalding. These include primary care, sickle cell disease, asthma, and child protection, areas where Children’s at Hughes Spalding can play a unique role in meeting the needs of the community.
Children’s also has worked closely with the leadership from Morehouse School of Medicine to expand the school’s pediatric residency program. Morehouse residents will now have access to higher acuity patients at Children’s at Egleston and Children’s at Scottish Rite, in addition to their experience at Children’s at Hughes Spalding.
