Explore the new state-of-the-art hospital tower

With light-reflecting white walls, floor-to-ceiling windows and a wide, gleaming terrazzo floor curving along the corridors and two-story pedestrian bridge that spans Clifton Road, the new hospital tower at Emory University Hospital looks like a set from a futuristic movie. What isn't immediately obvious, in all the steel, granite and glass, is the collective effort by dozens of teams to create a nurturing, people-focused environment.

In clinical research, healthy individuals participate as controls or "the norm" to compare with a chronic condition (high blood pressure, depression, diabetes, etc.) under investigation. And healthy aging itself has become a national focus of research.
