COLUMBUS, GA (April 16, 2018) – Tours of the new Emergency Department at Piedmont Columbus Regional Medical Center Northside on Frist Court were the order of the day as Batson-Cook Construction and Piedmont Columbus Regional Health celebrated the project’s completion at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The new 17,000-square-foot Emergency Department, which connects to the hospital, features 10 beds and emergency medical support services. The project also included an emergency vehicle access, a 40-space parking lot, and associated site work. Construction costs totaled $5.5 million.
“We are honored to have built the first Emergency Department at Northside Medical Center,” said Paul Meadows, general manager of Batson-Cook’s West Point office. “This is an important addition to the hospital, and greatly enhances healthcare services to the residents of Columbus and the surrounding communities.”
EYP/Stanley Beaman & Sears of Atlanta was the architect for the project.
Northside Medical Center is one of the two Columbus Regional Health hospitals that were recently acquired by Piedmont Healthcare of Atlanta.
