Emory University Hospital No. 6 in nation for infectious diseases

Monica Farley, MD

In a recent Medscape survey of U.S. physicians, Emory University Hospital was ranked No. 6 in the nation for infectious disease care. Emory’s Division of Infectious Diseases is led by Monica Farley, MD, division director of Infectious Diseases and a professor of medicine in the Emory University Department of Medicine.

Medscape asked more than 8,500 doctors for their professional opinion of where they would want to be treated or where they would send a family member for treatment of a complex or difficult condition, assuming there were no barriers to treatment at that preferred hospital.

“The combined wealth of knowledge, expertise in clinical care and significant research contributions by our infectious diseases team means our patients are getting world class care at Emory,” says Bryce Gartland, MD, CEO of Emory University Hospital. “We congratulate our infectious disease physicians on this recognition.”
