Major changes are afoot in Brookhaven, as Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta preps for the construction of the most expensive hospital ever constructed in Georgia.
According to a press release, plans are taking shape for a sprawling medical campus at Interstate 85 and North Druid Hills Road.
When the entire campus is complete, two new hospital towers will provide nearly 450 beds for patients, linked directly to a medical office tower and the AFLAC Cancer and Blood Disorders Center.
Beyond medical buildings, the site will also feature more than 20 acres of greenspace and miles of walking trails and paths for patients, visitors, and staff.
Work on the campus got underway earlier this year, with the commencement of construction on the Center for Advanced Pediatrics.
Beyond the campus, millions of dollars of infrastructural improvements are planned, with connections to the Peachtree Creek Greenway, interchange upgrades, and a new road connecting the neighborhoods on either side of the interstate.
The fleshed-out plans will be reviewed by the Brookhaven Planning Commission on Dec. 6, before the city council votes on them the following week.
If all goes according to plan, construction on the main hospital could begin next year, with final completion expected in 2026.
