In 2013, the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) ranked EUH second for quality out of more than 100 of the major teaching hospitals in the nation. EUH has one of the highest case-mix indexes (a measure of complexity of illness treated) among these UHC-ranked facilities. Also in 2012 U.S. News & World Report ranked EUH the No. 1 hospital in both metro Atlanta and Georgia.
Grady Memorial Hospital is a large, unique public urban hospital located in downtown Atlanta. Grady has cared for the citizens of Atlanta since 1892.

Faculty in the Emory University Infectious Diseases Division lead the Antibiotic Stewardship Programs based at Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory University Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital, with support from infectious disease-trained pharmacists at each facility.
The directors of the antibiotic stewardship programs at each hospital also play an active leadership role in the antibiotic utilization subcommittee of each hospital's Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee.
Individually and as a group, the directors and pharmacists have conducted several studies presented at national meetings and contributed to the published medical literature.
Current areas of interest include standardization of antibiotic use by developing local guidelines and a prospective study assessing the impact of elevated MIC to vancomycin on outcomes in patients with MRSA bacteremia.
The Hope Clinic is the clinical arm of the Emory Vaccine Research Center (EVC) and a Clinical Core for the Emory Center for AIDS Research (CFAR). Funded by an NIH T32 grant, the Emory Vaccinology Training program helps to create the next generation of clinical and translational vaccine researchers.
