Creating the Emory Difference means refreshing signage

As part of our effort to update and refresh our facilities, leaders should walk through their areas and remove any outdated materials with the DeKalb Medical logo. If you cannot remove the item by yourself, please contact Building Services for assistance.

Examples of pieces that may need to be replaced include pain management charts, hand washing reminders, patient rights notices, etc. A new pain management chart is available now.

If you determine, that the piece (poster, flyer, sign, brochure, patient education, etc.) should be updated with the new Emory Healthcare logo, please enter your request at:


If you have questions about whether a piece should be removed or reprinted, please contact Ann Marie Baird at Annmarie.baird@emoryhealthcare.org.

Please note that posters, flyers and other notices may only be attached to walls in an approved, non-breakable holder. Tape may not be used to adhere items to the wall.
