Atlanta, often hailed as the jewel of the South, is a thriving metropolis teeming with culture, innovation, and a uniquely Southern charm that melds tradition with modernity. As a healthcare professional considering a career at the Emory Critical Care Center (ECCC), you'll not only become part of a world-renowned medical institution but also enjoy life in a city that offers an unparalleled blend of lifestyle, opportunities, and amenities. 

Atlanta boasts a rich tapestry of neighborhoods, each with its distinct personality.

Our city is home to iconic landmarks such as the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, the World of Coca-Cola, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. For the outdoor enthusiast, the city offers lush parks, including the renowned Centennial Olympic Park and the expansive Piedmont Park. The Atlanta BeltLine, a multi-use trail system that encircles the city, is a favorite for joggers, cyclists, and those who enjoy a leisurely stroll. 

As a major cultural hub, Atlanta features world-class dining, with a food scene as diverse as the city itself, featuring everything from classic Southern comfort food to international cuisine. Art and music lovers will appreciate the High Museum of Art and the renowned Fox Theatre, as well as a music scene that covers a vast array of genres.
