On April 22, almost 3,000 community members visited the grounds of the new Northside Hospital Cherokee for the Community Open House. Northside Hospital Cherokee will officially relocate on May 6 to 450 Northside Cherokee Boulevard and open the doors of the 440,000-square-foot replacement facility to patients from the northwest metro Atlanta area. The new facility will replace the existing Northside Hospital Cherokee, located at 201 Hospital Road.
Tours were led by Northside staff, and included visits to the Emergency Department, Women’s Center, cafeteria and Intensive Care Unit. Visitors saw some parts of the hospital that will not be open to the public again.
In addition to featuring hospital tours, the Community Open House included information about Northside Hospital physicians and services; entertainment from local schools; and activities for kids such as face painters, arts and crafts, bounce houses, music, Charley the Magician and a stilt walker. Visitors also enjoyed popcorn, bottled water, cookies and hot dogs on the hospital grounds.
