Piedmont Hospital to build $603M, 16-story tower

The Georgia Department of Community Health on Dec. 12 approved a request by Atlanta-based Piedmont Hospital to build a $603 million, 16-story patient tower next to its main campus, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

The planned tower, called The Marcus Tower, will be the largest healthcare project in Georgia to date. The new facility is named in thanks for a $75 million grant from The Marcus Foundation, which funds and partners with organizations that work to advance sustainability and enhance community food resources.

It will house 408 patient beds, 10 operating rooms, eight cardiac catheterization labs and four electrophysiology labs, according to the report.

The tower will be built where an aging medical office building currently stands. Piedmont bought the office building last year. Demolition will begin in January and construction of the new tower will be completed in phases. Phase One, which will cost $465 million and includes the first six floors of the tower, is expected to be completed in September 2020 with additional renovations through 2021. Phase Two will cost $138 million and begin in 2022, with one patient floor built per year through 2026, when two floors will be "upfit," according to the report.
