Brookhaven City Council OKs New $1.3B Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Hospital
BROOKHAVEN, GA. — The Brookhaven City Council has approved a community investment agreement that will allow Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) to move forward with a new pediatric campus in the city of Brookhaven, roughly 11 miles north of downtown Atlanta. CHOA unveiled plans for the $1.3 billion project earlier this year. The new campus will include a 446-bed replacement hospital, support buildings, a physical plant, more than 20 acres of greenspace and the Center for Advanced Pediatrics, a 260,000-square-foot outpatient facility currently under construction. After construction of the new hospital is complete, CHOA will cease operations at the inpatient facility at Egleston Hospital in Atlanta. Construction on the campus’ first building will break ground next year. The project is slated for completion in 2025.
