Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is filing plans for an 8-story ambulatory care center at I-85 and N. Druid Hills Road in Brookhaven, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports.

The 300,000-square-foot facility would go within the existing Children’s Healthcare complex on the east side of the I-85/N. Druid Hills intersection. That area was annexed by the city of Brookhaven last year at Children’s Healthcare’s request. Children’s was concerned about the area becoming part of one of the new cities proposed by some activists in unincorporated DeKalb County.

Children’s Healthcare is in an expansion mode. Last month, it filed for a 60-bed expansion of its Scottish Rite hospital on Sandy Springs’ Pill Hill. The Pill Hill medical center is drawing new attention from both Sandy Springs and Brookhaven for surprise redevelopment and traffic jams.
