In February, we announced that we are breaking new ground at our new North Druid Hills Campus by asking our patients What if?
Since then, we have spent countless hours meeting with doctors, nurses, patients, parents, community leaders and neighbors gathering insightful input. Our vision is to transform a more than 70 acre site into a campus that begins the healing process upon entry, allowing us to improve the lives of future generations of children by bringing greater access to highly specialized pediatric care.
The North Druid Hills Campus will ultimately be home to the replacement hospital for Egleston, the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, a support staff office, acres of greenspace, and miles of trails. With easy access from I-85, the new campus will give our hospital system room to grow decades into the future.
Children’s plans call for a 348,000-square-foot replacement office building and associated parking deck. The office will accommodate Children’s support staff.
We will transform the lives of children by transforming the land into a pediatric healthcare destination. The phased development of our North Druid Hills campus will improve quality of care, patient experience and access to specialized pediatric healthcare for Georgia’s children and families.
Children's will redefine the surrounding area with a healthy, walkable, pedestrian-first design and continue to be a catalyst for change with more than $40 million invested in transportation and traffic improvements.
The design of our campus and careful placement of planned and future structures is designed to take advantage of the size of our campus, Atlanta’s plentiful sunlight and our location in the Georgia piedmont, where a mix of forest and greenspaces are the natural state of the environment. Our hospital towers may be as tall as 19-stories for one reason: to improve outcomes. These patient towers were designed to take advantage of research-proven healing views that we know improve outcomes while leaving greenspaces available for our patient families to access as much as possible.
