Atlanta children's hospital will not serve as outpatient facility when system's new hospital opens

Children's Egleston Hospital, part of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, will no longer serve as an outpatient facility once the system's new Arthur M. Blank facility opens at the end of next year.

The 19-story, 446-bed Arthur M. Blank Hospital is the centerpiece of a $2.2 billion expansion on the system's 78-acre North Druid Hills campus. The new hospital is still on track to welcome its first patient by the fall of 2024, a spokesperson told Becker's on July 17.

Many of the employees currently working at the Emory University-affiliated Egleston facility will transfer to work at the new hospital.

No other plans for the Egleston hospital have been announced by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, the spokesperson said.

The Arthur M. Blank project will also include parklike spaces and "healing gardens" over 20 acres, according to a July 11 Urbanize Atlanta report.
