Woodruff Health Sciences Center | June 9, 2021
Emory Johns Creek Hospital announced today the completion of a facility expansion adding two new floors and 40 additional beds to the existing hospital. One floor will remain shell space for the time being. Also opening is a new parking deck that will provide 640 parking spaces and offer free parking to patients and visitors. A ribbon cutting was held today at the hospital to commemorate the expansion.
The project adds approximately 70,000 square feet to the existing patient tower and features large windows for natural daylight, LED lighting and controls and low-emitting interior finishes. The 6th floor is set to open next week and will contain 40 medical, surgical and oncology patient rooms and three nurses’ stations. The 5th floor, which will contain office and additional shell space, will open at a later date.
"Our main commitment is to provide efficient, compassionate world-class care to help patients heal, close to home. This expansion also gives Emory Johns Creek Hospital additional opportunities to innovate, educate and serve as a vital part of our community,” says Marilyn Margolis, Emory Johns Creek Hospital CEO.
The facility expansion was led by DPR Construction.
“Change the world. It's one of our core beliefs at DPR, and one way to do that is through the customers we serve. Emory is such a vital member of the Johns Creek community, it’s been an honor supporting the local team to deliver the expansion of Emory Johns Creek Hospital to allow them to provide even more extraordinary care and excellent service to the people of Johns Creek,” says Chris Bontrager, DPR’s Atlanta business unit leader.
The new parking deck, located behind the hospital, was designed by Collins Cooper Carusi Architects and built by McCarthy Building Companies.
“It was an honor for McCarthy to work with Emory Healthcare and participate in this exciting expansion of their campus in Johns Creek,” says Bobby Campbell, Atlanta business unit leader for McCarthy.
