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 growing community. And the final chapter in the story was among the best, because building a new hospital is one thing – and moving into it is quite another.
When moving day dawned, we saw Northsiders at their best in every way. It was a massive undertaking that demanded contributions from everyone on the staff and also from EMS professionals who gathered to help us.
It was truly a community project!
One of the most delicate parts was moving patients, and this had plenty of potential for problems. But Northsiders were more than up to the challenge, moving patients quickly, comfortably and efficiently with plenty of smiles all around.
It was an amazing feat by our team, and we’re thrilled that we were able to document it and share it with others. As a member of the Atlanta community, you can be proud that you have a team like this on your side.
