Piedmont Newnan Hospital Breaks Ground On Second Medical Office Building
From Special Reports:
Piedmont Newnan Hospital held a groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 7 for a new 113,000-square-foot medical office building (MOB). The new MOB is slated to be complete in late 2020, with occupancy in early 2021, and will be the second MOB on the hospital’s campus.
The new, five-level Piedmont Medical Plaza II at 795 Poplar Road will be a critical part of the full-service health campus it will share with the hospital.
The facility will bring a full complement of Piedmont Healthcare and independent physician services to the southwest Atlanta Metro suburbs, including cardiology, cardiopulmonary rehab, general surgery, neurology, orthopedics, physical therapy and occupational therapy. The MOB will also house administrative, human resources, and classroom space for Piedmont Newnan.
“The MOB at Newnan will be a welcome addition to both Piedmont Newnan patients and the citizens of the southwest Atlanta metro,” says Mike Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan Hospital. “When completed, this astutely planned and carefully designed facility will enable us to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver a wide variety of healthcare services close to home for our patients in Coweta and surrounding communities – all within walking distance of Piedmont Newnan Hospital.”
The hospital and the site of the future MOB are highly visible from and offer convenient access to U.S. Interstate 85 and Poplar Road, with an abundance of parking in close proximity to the building, adding 408 additional surface parking lot spaces.
The groundbreaking was well attended by community leaders and hospital directors, including Ron Duffey, chair of the Piedmont Healthcare Board of Directors, as well as Piedmont’s construction partners MBRE Healthcare and Batson-Cook.
