Barbara Swartzberg

Emergency Medicine Recognizes Barbara Swartzberg, DNP, for 25 Years of Service to Emory

Dr. Swartzberg, Chief Advanced Practice Provider at EUHM, started with Emory Healthcare in 1988. After a stint with the CDC from 1994-1997—a time when Emory did not offer APP positions—Barbara returned to Emory and joined the Anesthesia Pre-Op clinic as one of its first APPS. Since 2003 she has been Chief of the APPS at Emory University Hospital Midtown.

Barbara originally came to Atlanta from Oakton, Virginia, and earned a degree from the Art Institute here. She continues to paint. She received her Family Nurse Practitioner master’s degree from Georgia State University in 1994, and her DNP from the Medical College of Georgia in 2007.

Barbara is a member of the adjunct faculties of Emory’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing and the University of Birmingham, and until recently Squadron Commander of the US Air Force Reserve.

Twenty-nine years after taking the plunge into the field of nursing/medicine, Barbara remains passionate, compassionate and loyal to Emory Healthcare and the patients that entrust their care to her.
