For the last 10 years, Northeast Georgia Health System steadily made progress to build and open a new hospital in Braselton. NGMC Braselton will officially open and begin providing care for patients on April 1.
As the first net-new hospital in Georgia, meaning not a replacement or relocation facility, in almost 20 years, NGMC Braselton will offer a broad range of advanced surgical and medical services, with a strong emphasis on outpatient surgery, as well as emergency services and specialty care in many areas including cardiology, oncology, orthopedics and neurosciences.
On Sunday, March 29, the 100-bed hospital will open its doors for a one-day-only opportunity to tour the new building before it opens and take a peek behind the scenes. The emergency room, patient rooms, operating rooms, imaging suite, catheterization labs and many other areas of the hospital will be open for guests to see the new facilities and learn about the services, technology and equipment in those spaces. In addition, area first responders will have ambulances, fire trucks and a helicopter on-site for a “Touch an Emergency Vehicle Zone”; Café 1400, the hospital’s café, will provide treats for guests and free tree seedlings will be given to the first 1000 attendees.
Turner Construction was the general contractor on this project; HGA served as architect.
