Northside Hospital held a groundbreaking event and ceremonial cran christening on June 7 to mark the construction of a new patient tower on its Northside Gwinnett campus in Lawrenceville. Hospital leadership joined representatives from the Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation, Hospital Authority of Gwinnett County, Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce and the local community to celebrate.
The new patient tower will add 132 new inpatient beds, increasing the hospital’s total inpatient capacity from 388 to 520. The tower will include the expansion of ancillary and support services, and a new patient entry lobby and outpatient waiting area.
The project also includes a 143,828-square-foot medical office building to house outpatient imaging, ambulatory surgery and a variety of physician practices. Completion is expected by 2025.
