Georgia hospital approved for 20-year expansion

Emory Johns Creek (Ga.) Hospital has received zoning approval for a 20-year expansion, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sept. 20. 

The project will bring the total size of the hospital campus to 1.6 million square feet. It will add 380,302 square feet to the hospital and 700,000 square feet of medical office space.

Cardiac care units, operating rooms, hospital support and medical facilities as well as ambulatory, emergency and radiology services will all be expanded. Two parking decks and one surface parking lot will also be added. 

"There is so much need," Marilyn Margolis, RN, CEO of Emory Johns Creek Hospital, said in a recent council meeting. "We've already done the internal [growth]. We went from 14 to 18 ICU beds, went 110 to 200 inpatient beds. We added two ORs; we've added four ICU beds. And that's been over the past five years."

The hospital is currently working on a fifth floor addition slated to be completed in 2023. Following the addition, it will begin expanding outpatient radiology services.
