Emory Healthcare – A decade of planning, An enhanced mobility experience

Adele Clements, CAPP
Senior Director, Transportation, Parking and Fleet Services, Emory University
Jeffrey Smith, P.E., LEED AP
Project Manager, Kimley-Horn

Emory University's Druid Hills Campus consists of a 15,252 student University as well as a health system comprised of 924,266 square feet of clinic space and 540 hospital beds in two inpatient bed towers. Emory Healthcare has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, leading to the opening of a 232 bed inpatient tower in 2017. The success of the health system has brought with it pressures on the transportation and parking systems. The University has used strong planning practices to address mobility challenges and enhance the patient arrival and departure experience, while improving the experience for employees. We will explore the mobility components that Emory has addressed, such as transit service, satellite facilities, valet operations, traffic and pedestrian circulation, new technologies, and parking policies. The processes used to support these initiatives, from strategic planning, building leadership support and full design and implementation will be discussed.



1. Develop an understanding of the trends in competing transportation interests within a healthcare and university setting
2. Gain insight and inspiration on creative ways to combat these challenges
3. Showcase planning and design processes that make project delivery a success
4. Provide insight into how you may use these tools and ideas to address your own challenges and what level of impact they may have
