ATLANTA (January 30, 2018) – Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta announced today that it will open the doors of the Children's at Town Center Outpatient Care Center on February 6, 2018. The new 48,187-square-foot building, located on the existing Children's at Town Center campus, will provide pediatric specialty care in multiple disciplines to Cobb County and surrounding areas.
The Outpatient Care Center on the Children’s at Town Center campus will be named the Cunningham Family Building in recognition of a generous gift from Cobb resident Jay Cunningham. The facility will offer families access to an expanded sports medicine gym, outpatient rehabilitation, and orthotics and prosthetics, as well as pediatric specialists, including allergy, otolaryngology (ENT), endocrinology, general surgery, nephrology, orthopaedics and pulmonology.
These services join Children’s urgent care and radiology offerings currently available on the Town Center campus. In addition to the new building, the existing facilities at Town Center are currently being renovated and will be completed in summer 2018.
“Children’s has been a proud part of the Cobb County community for more than 20 years,” says Donna Hyland, President and CEO at Children’s. “Our goal is to continue to find new ways to provide access to the care that every child in Cobb County deserves. With this expansion, the Town Center campus will be a one-stop shop for many of the community’s specialized pediatric healthcare needs.”
In 2017, Children’s treated 35,000 children who live in Cobb County, from broken bones, ear tube surgeries, sports rehabilitation to cancer. Children’s has five locations in Cobb County and offers families access to more than 2,000 pediatric providers representing more than 60 pediatric specialties and programs within the Children’s system.
In addition to expanded services, the new facility will provide specialized pediatric equipment and techniques that children need to thrive. The building will offer a large meeting room to host local groups and events for the community.
“Children’s pediatric doctors, clinicians, specialists and nurses understand that a child’s medical and emotional needs are different from an adult’s, so we are breaking new ground to ensure kids have access to specialized pediatric care,” says Hyland. “Whether it is groundbreaking research or new facilities, Children’s envisions a universe of coordinated care that will help ensure the children of metro Atlanta and beyond will be healthy and happy for generations to come.”
The expansion of the Children’s at Town Center campus is made possible through generous support from the Cobb community. Visit choa.org/breakingnewgroundincobb for more information.
