Timothy G. Buchman, MD, PhD
Professor of Surgery
Dr. Buchman is the founding director of the Emory Critical Care Center (ECCC), which is integrating ICUs throughout the Emory Healthcare system and bringing together clinicians and investigators from diverse disciplines to conduct research to define best clinical practices and inform public health policy. Currently, the ECCC offers adult surgical intensive care, medical intensive care, cardiothoracic surgical intensive care, neuroscience critical care, and cardiac care in three of Emory Healthcare's six hospitals: Emory University Hospital (EUH), Emory University Hospital Midtown, and Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital (ESJH). In 2012, the ECCC opened a new ICU at the midtown hospital that was designed by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists and experts coordinated by Dr. Buchman. The design incorporated feedback from families of former patients and technology that has made care teams more efficient.
