SNELLVILLE -- Eastside Medical Center officials were joined by Snellville Mayor Kelly Kautz and city council members last week as they held a ceremonial groundbreaking for a new $59-million patient tower.
The patient tower will be three stories and contain 48 private rooms. Phase one of the project is scheduled for completion in December.
"When we obtained state approval in March, I was ecstatic about the opportunity to offer 48 additional rooms at Eastside," hospital COO Dustin Greene said. "This new tower will provide much needed space and continue our goal to offer excellent patient care to our community."
Patients rooms in the new tower will be "configured for comfort and include the latest innovations for clinical staff to provide optimal care," officials said. The rooms will be "adjustable acuity," meaning patients could stay in the same room regardless of the level of care required.
