Piedmont Hospital plans $3.5M renovation of women’s services unit
The hospital plans to renovate 25,000 square feet of existing space, but does not plan to add any new beds or services, according to a filing with Georgia’s Department of Community Health.
Next, the hospital will need to officially submit a Certificate of Need request by July 7 with DCH, which will then decide if the renovation is necessary.
Piedmont Healthcare System is also about to kick off a major expansion of its cardiac services—the largest among all Georgia hospitals—following a grant of $75 million that philanthropist Bernie Marcus announced in March of this year for long-term expansion.
That expansion will include demolition of the 78,000-square-foot Sheffield Building, at the intersection of Peachtree and Collier roads, to make way for a larger tower that will place all cardiac services under one roof.
