The Atlanta Falcons are making a major addition to their training facility, partnering with Emory Healthcare to build a $15 million medicine clinic and sports performance center.

Plans for both the Emory Orthopedics and Spine Center and the Emory Sports Performance and Research Center were announced at the Falcons' facility in Flowery Branch on Monday. The project is expected to be completed by next fall.

No longer will players have to wait to see a specialist or receive treatment for injury. With the new clinic, the Falcons will have direct access and be assisted by physicians immediately.

The Falcons, who are owned by The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD) co-founder Arthur Blank, are the latest team in the NFL to upgrade their practice facilities. They hope it will pay off in terms of improving livelihood of their players, as well as impressing free agents who come in to visit.

 

“We’re definitely moving the needle,” Atlanta Falcons president and CEO Rich McKay said. “Emory is clearly the leading medical system in Georgia and obviously the United States. One of the core values of Arthur is to continuously innovate. That’s what we try to do at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. That’s what we do with the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United — and this facility will do that.”

The Falcons are building on their relationship with their healthcare provider, Emory, extending their partnership long-term to build this facility on campus.

The new 29,000-square-foot structure, which will take about 14 months to complete, will provide a view that overlooks the practice fields. The new facilities will also be available for the citizens of Hall County and will serve as a new location for Emory patients.

“Together with the Atlanta Falcons we will develop one of the most progressive research laboratories in the country, exploring the science of sports injury prevention and injury recovery, with a focus on younger athletes as well as professionals,” said Dr. Scott Boden, professor and chair of the Department of Orthopedics at Emory University.

OK,  that is pretty cool.

Every real estate agent in Hall County should use this.
