This has been quite a year at Northside! So far, we’ve had almost three million patients pass through the doors of our campuses. We were also recognized for providing some of the best patient experiences of any hospital in the nation.
We are grateful to each and every staff member who has helped us reach these milestones – because they are achievements of which any health system would be proud.
We haven’t just stopped there. This also has been a year of explosive and rapid growth in every way.
At our new Cherokee campus, which has been open just a little over a year, we’re already adding two new floors, a renovation expected to be completed by the end of 2018. We’ve also expanded parking and broken ground on the second medical office building there – and that doesn’t even include our new outpatient surgery center in Towne Lake.
On our Atlanta campus, we’ve just finished the first real expansion there in almost 20 years, featuring the addition of a new eight-story patient tower that offers services for pulmonary/thoracic, oncology, blood and marrow transplant and medical/surgical patients.
Also in Atlanta, we marked the long-awaited opening of the Northside Medical building in Midtown, which houses physician practices, imaging services and an urgent care center.
We didn’t leave our Forsyth campus out of this growth. This year, we opened a fifth medical office building and recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Women’s Center. More than 25,000 babies have been born at Northside Hospital Forsyth since 2008 and it’s become one of our signatures.
This is what happens when you bring together a team that’s dedicated to its patients and its community. Our growth, and the accolades we’ve earned so far in 2018, are a tribute to all the hard-working members of the Northside Family.
We are all excited to see what 2019 will bring!
