In the fall, the Hawks will move into a 90,000-square feet facility that cost nearly $50 million. But it’s more than just an NBA practice facility. The Hawks are teaming with Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center and P3 (Peak Performance Project) to create a center that not only includes modern amenities but one that incorporates the best of sports medicine and science. The strategically-planned convergence is aimed at preventing injuries, keeping players healthier and extending careers. “We want to be the benchmark that everyone strives for when people talk about a professional sports team and an academic health-care partnership in terms of the quality of the medical care, healing and recovery and the science of injury prevention and nutrition,” said Dr. Scott Boden, director of Emory Orthopaedics and Spine Center.
