Northside Hospital Forsyth, Cumming, Ga., is moving forward with its plans for expansion, submitting an application to add dozens of inpatient beds. According to an article on 11Alive, the hospital filed a Certificate of Need (CON) application to construct a two-story vertical addition to the surgery tower. The construction would include 43 additional inpatient medical/surgical beds.

Reporter Brittany Kleinpeter writes: “A previous CON application was filed on Nov. 26 proposing the addition of 16 OB inpatient beds. If both applications are approved, the hospital’s total inpatient bed count would increase from 304 to 363 beds…The project is just the latest expansion proposed by the fast-growing Northside system.
