Other Reports: URC, Emory Healthcare and St. Joseph’s


From other reports the Faculty Council heard at its April meeting:

  • Professor of Marketing Doug Bowman reported that the University Research Committee had allocated more than $1 million in short-term grants to 38 faculty in 2010-11.
  • Wright Caughman, executive vice president of health affairs and CEO of the Woodruff Health Science Center, updated the Council on the agreement between Emory Healthcare and St. Joseph’s Hospital to form a joint operating company. “We put forth a partnership in which Emory Healthcare would have controlling interest . . . but it would be a partnership to operate St. Joseph’s as a part of Emory Healthcare,” Caughman said. “There will be lots of planning over the summer, but the contractual relationship will not be finalized until after Labor Day.” Caughman also noted that the “core assets” and strategic direction of Emory Healthcare and the Woodruff Health Sciences Center would not be compromised, but “only enhanced in terms of education and translational research.”
