Emory Johns Creek Hospital (EJCH), Johns Creek, Ga., broke ground earlier this month on the facility’s $61 million expansion. Emory Healthcare leaders, Johns Creek elected officials, and community members attended the event to celebrate the addition of two new floors to the existing hospital, including 40 beds.

The building addition will feature natural daylight with large windows, LED lighting and controls, low-emitting interior finishes, and waste and reduction efforts throughout construction. The 110-bed acute care hospital will begin construction this fall. The new area is expected to open in April 2021.
