The Northside Hospital Emergency Department, one of the top five emergency departments in terms of volume in Sandy Springs, recently unveiled the $2.5 million expansion of its Atlanta campus.

The latest improvements have added 15 treatment spaces and bring the number of beds in the emergency department to 45, the hospital said in a press release.

“Since last year, we’ve had a 13 percent growth in our emergency services,” said Chris Munn, director of Northside Hospital Emergency Services. “In 2014 alone, the department saw 56,584 patient visits. People choose Northside for their emergency needs because we have a great reputation for quality and customer friendly service, plus quick patient through-put compared to other hospitals.”

Along with the 4,000 square-feet addition to the department, Northside has added more emergency trained doctors, nurses and providers ready 24 hours a day, the release said.

In addition to emergency services, Northside provides quick entry into its healthcare system, if additional medical services are needed.

“Many of our emergency service patients are treated and discharged, often in less than two hours,” Munn said. “Your ER doctor will tell you to ‘follow up’ with your regular doctor or you may need to be admitted to the hospital or surgery.”
