Emory breaks ground on $61M expansion of Johns Creek hospital

Ceremonial shovels met ceremonial dirt outside Emory Johns Creek Hospital on Friday. Officials marked the ground-breaking of a $61 million expansion of the medical facility.

The new area is expected to open in April 2021, with two floors of space holding 40 new beds and additional clinic space.

Renderings show a new entrance tower and redesigned visitor lounges along with nurses’s stations.

More than 600 doctors at the 110-bed hospital currently offer a wide range of services, from a sleep center to robotic surgery. The hospital opened in February 2007.

Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker, Mayor Pro-Tem Lenny Zaprowski and councilmen John Bradberry and Steve Broadbent ceremonially shoveled on Friday, according to a Facebook post from the city.
