Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Breaks New Ground to Meet Growing Demand for Care

ATLANTA, Ga. – Children Healthcare of Atlanta’s plans include a new pediatric hospital at its campus at North Druid Hills Road in Georgia. In addition to the North Druid Hills Campus, Children’s is investing in its facilities across its system as a part of its “Every Child Deserves Children’s” strategic plan to expand access. Additional 2017 initiatives include:

  • Opening of 46 new licensed beds and 14 observation beds at Scottish Rite hospital in 2017
  • Expansion of the emergency department at Hughes Spalding hospital by summer 2017
  • Planning for additional beds at Egleston to meet demand until the new hospital opens
  • Construction of the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, a 260,000-square-foot facility that will put complex care specialists, state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge research for outpatient care under one roof
  • Construction of an outpatient facility at Town Center
  • Addition of a new urgent care center in Hamilton Creek in 2017
  • Expansion of specialty services and urgent care at Hudson Bridge
  • Expansion of specialty services in Cherokee
  • Construction of a new urgent care center in the Chamblee/Brookhaven area

After construction of the new hospital at North Druid Hills is complete, Children’s will no longer operate an inpatient facility at Egleston. Future plans for the use of the Egleston campus have not been determined. Children’s Scottish Rite and Hughes Spalding hospitals will continue to grow to meet the needs of families and children.

In addition to the new hospital, the North Druid Hills Campus will be home to the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, which broke ground last month. The site currently houses a single-story office complex occupied by Children’s. Children’s currently owns more than 45 acres at the site; its total investment in the new hospital will likely be in the range of $1 billion to $1.3 billion.
