FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. —Northside Hospital-Forsyth is seeking to expand internally.

On Dec. 5, the hospital filed a Certificate of Need application with the state to convert 37 existing 23-hour observation beds to medical or surgical beds, according to a hospital spokesperson. This would bring the hospital’s total inpatient bed count to 284.

“This is in response to the state’s indication that these beds are needed to help Northside Hospital-Forsyth meet patient demand in 2021,” the spokesperson said. “The Certificate of Need also proposes to expand and renovate the cafeteria and dining room in order to better accommodate the visitors, staff, physicians and patients currently using them each day.”

It can take up to four months to receive approval.

In addition to the Certificate of Need, the hospital has begun site preparations for the campus’ fifth medical office building. The 133,000 square foot building is expected to open in spring 2018.

This comes just a week after the hospital system announced the purchase of a 4.9 acre parcel fronting Alpharetta Highway at Hospital Boulevard, next door to WellStar North Fulton Hospital.

Northside has three main campuses in Atlanta, Forsyth County and Cherokee, with various outpatient facilities and rehabilitation locations throughout the area.

And the hospital doesn’t plan to slow down.

In October, the Forsyth campus went under major renovation and added three floors.

The system is also expanding to south of Sandy Springs. The Northside Midtown Medical office building at 1130 West Peachtree Street and 13th Street is in the works with a groundbreaking planned in the near future.

Northside’s Cherokee campus is getting a total makeover with a completely new building on 300 acres. The building is expected to open in 2017 along with a medical office building.
