Piedmont Receives CON for Patient Tower

ATLANTA, Ga. – The Georgia Department of Community Health has granted Piedmont Atlanta Hospital a Certificate of Need for a new 16-story patient tower. Located on the corner of Peachtree and Collier roads, the new facility will provide updated amenities to patients in the community, as well as the Marcus Heart and Vascular Center, made possible in part by the Marcus Foundation.

The tower will replace the Sheffield Building, located on the hospital’s main campus, with the first phase of the $603-million project complete around September 2020. Demolition will begin February 2017, following some remediation. Fencing around Collier and Peachtree Roads has already begun and will be expanded in late March to the ambulance entry near the property adjacent to the Shepherd Center.

Phase two of the tower up-fit will begin in 2022 and one patient floor will be completed per year, except for 2026 when the final two floors will be built out. The total project duration will be 10 years.

The project was a culmination of 32 partner companies led by CBRE Healthcare as program manager, HKS, Inc. as architect, Morris, Manning, and Martin as CON attorneys, Dunbar Consulting as CON counsel and Brasfield & Gorrie as general contractor. In addition, more than 1,000 people – patients, staff, neighbors and expansion leadership – provided input on the vision of the project through workshops and advisory meetings.
