Turnkey Completes Construction Project at Atlanta’s Historic Emory Hospital
Turnkey Construction and Roofing recently completed a number of tenant improvement projects for Atlanta’s historic Emory Hospital. Through a partnership with a local mechanical firm, Turnkey completed access panels, ceiling work, drywall and painting in conjunction with the facility’s new HVAC systems that were installed by our HVAC partner.
Staffed exclusively by Emory University School of Medicine faculty who also are members of the Emory Clinic, Emory University Hospital is one of the nation’s leading hospitals in cardiology and heart surgery, cancer, neurology and more. Emory University Hospital’s tradition of healing dates back almost a century. In March 1904, the hospital’s predecessor, Wesley Memorial Hospital, was chartered with 50 beds. The hospital was housed in a downtown Atlanta mansion that had been spared from destruction by General Sherman’s army during the Civil War.
By November 1922, the hospital had grown too large for its quarters and moved to its current DeKalb County site on the Emory University campus. The new 275-bed facility was a gift of Asa G. Candler, philanthropist and founder of The Coca-Cola Company. In the mid-1930s, the name was changed to Emory University Hospital. The university and the hospital bear the name of Bishop John Emory, who presided at a meeting of the Georgia Methodist Conference in 1834 when delegates decided to establish a Methodist college in Georgia.
