ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Jackson Healthcare, a family of highly-specialized healthcare staffing, search and technology companies, officially opened its new, $100 million campus expansion on March 8 to accommodate its growth.
Hundreds of Jackson Healthcare associates, along with several state legislators and city leaders, flocked to 2655 Northwinds Parkway to celebrate the new 267,000 square-foot office tower and 39,000 square-foot associate amenities center.
“This is one of the largest corporate campus expansions in Georgia’s history,” said Jackson Healthcare President Shane Jackson. “This is one of the most unique corporate campuses anywhere. It really took a team of incredibly talented and hardworking people to pull off something this grand, this beautiful and this complex…
“Every inch of our expanded campus was designed with our associates in mind.”
The new campus features innovative work and collaboration areas, and new technologies and state-of the-art amenities to foster communication, collaboration, a sense of belonging, and to enhance well-being, Jackson said.
The campus is styled after an Italian piazza, complete with a fountain and a 1,385-car parking deck designed to resemble the buildings along the Piazza del Campo in Siena.
The centerpiece of the campus is a 3-story amenities building, inspired by the Roman Colosseum. It houses a fitness and wellness center, an indoor pool, spray-tanning studio, and massage and chiropractor services along with two restaurants, a coffee bar and smoothie bar. The company expects to add a salon with a blow dry bar and nail services in the future.
“We are very proud to be in Alpharetta, Georgia,” Shane Jackson said. “It’s a great place to work, I think it’s a great place to live, personally, and the city’s been a great partner for us in really being flexible with some of the unique things we’re doing up here.:
The new campus is expected to accommodate 1,400 new associates and is dedicated to all Jackson Healthcare associates, past, present and future, said Chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare Richard L. Jackson.
“Today is the first chapter of building a long-term legacy that people will benefit from for years to come,” he said.
The buildings on the existing campus are undergoing several renovations, including new workspaces, an updated dining facility and expansion of its on-site medical clinic. One building on the existing campus, known as LoveLifts Village, has been dedicated for office space use by local nonprofits.
Several companies helped build the new campus, including Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, LLC Architecture and Interior Design, Choate Construction and CA South.
Shane Jackson ended the ceremony by reminding everyone that the new buildings and amenities will ultimately help Jackson Healthcare fulfill its mission of service to others.
“True power is best shown by understanding and serving the needs of others,” he said. “Any other manifestation of power and influence will be lost. But what can be imparted on others through service will last. Today, we recognize that as impressive as these structures are, they will ultimately crumble and fade. So, we view these buildings as they are rightly to be seen: as tools to be used in the service of others.”
