Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is prepared to break ground on the Center for Advanced Pediatrics in Brookhaven on Wednesday.
The outpatient clinical facility will focus primarily on treating children with chronic and complex diseases, and will put “complex care specialists, state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge research for outpatient pediatric care under one roof for the first time in Georgia,” according to a recent press release.
DeKalb County approved the proposed project in late 2016.
“A family who has a child with a complex disease often has regular appointments with many different providers in different locations,” the statement said. “The Center for Advanced Pediatrics will create a destination where much of what these families need medically for their kids is in one centralized hub.”
The 260,000-square-foot facility will be located at I-85 and North Druid Hills Road, according to the website.
As one of the only centers of its kind in Georgia, it will serve patients from around the state.
Children’s Healthcare has hospitals throughout metro Atlanta.
The center is expected to be completed in 2018, according to a spokeswoman.
