Emory Healthcare physicians in sports medicine, cardiology and ophthalmology have enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the coaches and players of the Atlanta Falcons. This new partnership provides an opportunity for our organizations to have a broader relationship and builds on the medical support and care currently provided to the team. The partnership also gives Emory Healthcare new opportunities to engage in community outreach and educate Falcons fans on the importance of maintaining or achieving a healthy lifestyle through preventative care, good nutrition, exercise, regular checkups and screenings.
Along with the Atlanta Falcons, physicians at Emory Healthcare also serve as the official team health care providers for the Atlanta Hawks, the Atlanta Braves and the Atlanta Dream, as well as Georgia Tech and several other college and high school athletic associations.
“We are excited to have Emory Healthcare as our Official Team Healthcare provider for the Atlanta Falcons,” says Tim Zulawski, chief revenue officer, AMB Sports and Entertainment. “Over the past few years, we have enjoyed a great partnership between our players and coaching staff and their team of physicians; we are proud to bring them on in this official capacity.”
“We are very excited about this new partnership and honored that another Atlanta-area team has chosen us to care for their athletes to help them perform at the highest level,” says Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Emory Healthcare.
