Northside’s flagship hospital, located in Sandy Springs, opened in 1970.[1] An eight-level patient tower was added in October 2018 to house the hospital’s blood and marrow transplant services.[1] In 1997, Northside Hospital purchased half of R.T. Jones Memorial Hospital in Canton, Georgia and renamed the facility Northside Hospital-Cherokee.[2] Northside Hospital-Cherokee’s location opened in May 2017 and has a staff of 2,000 employees, including 800 physicians.[3]

Northside Hospital purchased Baptist Medical Center in Cumming, Georgia in 2002, which was renamed Northside Hospital-Forsyth.[4][5] Originally a 41-bed facility, the hospital expanded to 304 beds.[when?][4][6]

Northside Hospital’s midtown Atlanta location opened in November 2018.[7] The 169,000-square foot medical office provides services for cancer, sports medicine, diabetes, sleep disorders and other conditions.[7]
