BROOKHAVEN, GA. — The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club and Emory Healthcare have opened a 90,000-square-foot training facility and sports medicine center in Brookhaven, roughly 11 miles north of downtown Atlanta, on Tuesday. The privately funded Emory Sports Medicine Complex integrates four facilities: Emory Healthcare Courts, the official practice and training facility for the Atlanta Hawks; Emory Sports Medicine Center and Emory Physical Therapy, which house Emory’s entire sports medicine division; and Peak Performance Project, an applied sports science services provider for elite-level athletes from around the world. The Hawks’ new facility is the first in the NBA to be co-located with an entire sports medicine center, allowing for access to high-tech equipment such as a 3 Tesla MRI scanner, 3D motion capture analysis and blood/sweat testing and analysis on-site.
