Taking It To The Streets

Fall is a great time here. The weather is cooling off, and that inspires people to get outside to enjoy it. There’s nothing like enjoying the great outdoors for a great cause. Between today and the end of the month, we have a lot of cool (in every way) events to look forward to. This […]

Northsiders Hit The Road

Caring, commitment and dedication keep Northsiders busy on the job. Because all of our team members work so hard, we make it point to stress maintaining the right work/life balance here at Northside. Not only does it help avoid burnout, it also ensures that we’re sharp when we need to be. We encourage Northsiders to […]

For […]

A Real Lifesaver

Amy and her children were at a birthday party at a community pool in Lilburn when she overheard a 9-year-old tell her […]

Take Us Out To The Ballgame

SunTrust Park, home of our Atlanta Braves, is a special spot for Northsiders. After our amazing tribute to cancer survivors in June, we hosted another special event on July 14, when members of the Northside team and our community partners were joined by the EMS professionals who helped us make the big move to the […]

Turning A Dream Into Reality

It took 12 years and a ton of work, but this year we’ve made the dream of a new Northside Hospital Cherokee a reality. And we couldn’t be more proud. The process started in 2005 and we finished it in May, realizing our vision of a state-of-the-art facility that could provide premium care to a […]
