The Robert Winship Clinic was established in 1937 through a gift to Emory of $50,000 from Coca Cola CEO Robert W. Woodruff, who named the center after his maternal grandfather, Robert Winship, in honor of his mother, Emily Winship, who died from breast cancer. Woodruff’s vision was to create a center in Georgia that focuses on research, education and patient care. The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, Inc. has continued to support Emory in achieving this vision, and in 2003 Emory dedicated the 275,000 square feet (25,500 m2) Winship Cancer Institute building, constructed with funds from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, Inc.


Winship Cancer Institute is located on the campus of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Affiliate locations include Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital, Grady Memorial Hospital and the Atlanta VA Medical Center.
