Wesley Woods was founded in 1954 by leaders of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church and Emory University to provide care for seniors unable to care for themselves. The Center began its affiliation with Emory’s Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center in the 1980s formalizing its tie with the University. In the late 1990s, that affiliation grew stronger and led to an agreement under which nearby Wesley Woods Center came under Emory’s umbrella. Out of this grew the Wesley Woods Center of Emory University, with interdisciplinary training, research and treatment programs for geriatric care. In 2015 it was re-named Emory Wesley Woods Center.
Located a mile and a half from Emory University Hospital on a 64-acre (260,000 m2) wooded campus in Atlanta’s Druid Hills neighborhood, Emory Wesley Woods Center comprises Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital, Wesley Woods Long Term Hospital, Wesley Woods Outpatient Clinic, Budd Terrace nursing care facility, Wesley Woods Towers and the Wesley Woods Health Center. One of only a handful of geriatric centers in the United States Emory Wesley Woods Center and the dedicated staff provide care to older adults throughout Georgia and the Southeast.
Emory Wesley Woods Center provides care and research and has a hand in developing how senior care will be provided in the future not just in Georgia, but throughout the country.
