JOHNS CREEK– Emory Johns Creek Hospital (EJCH) recently broke ground on its expansion for the medical office building at Physician’s Plaza and a new parking deck. As part of the hospital’s vertical expansion project, crews will build three new floors to the existing four-story building in Physician’s Plaza.
"We’re thrilled to expand Physician’s Plaza, our hospital and build a new parking deck to better serve our growing patient population," says Marilyn Margolis, MN, RN, NEA-BC, EJCH Chief Executive Officer.
"It’s our top priority that our patients receive outstanding medical care and their experience is as comfortable as possible, from the time they arrive to our campus until they leave," says Margolis.
The $30 million project will add 108,500 square feet to Physician’s Plaza. The expansion will also include two new elevators and a dedicated entrance for patients at Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University in Johns Creek. Construction for Physician’s Plaza is expected to be completed by May 2021.
Additionally, EJCH just broke ground on a new parking deck, which will add 640 parking spaces.
"In response to our growing patient volumes and workforce, it’s essential that we’re equipped with resources, such as the new parking deck to support our patients, visitors and staff," says Laurie Hansen, vice president of operations at EJCH.
The parking deck is expected to be completed by June 2021.
Construction is also underway at EJCH to add two new floors and 40 beds to the existing 110-bed acute care hospital. The building addition will feature natural daylight with large windows, LED lighting and controls, low-emitting interior finishes, and waste and reduction efforts throughout construction. The new area is expected to open in May 2021.
