The Georgia Department of Community Health announced its approval of CHI Memorial’s certificate of need (CON) application to build a new hospital in Ringgold, GA.
The new hospital in Ringgold will feature 64 inpatient beds including an intensive care unit (ICU), as well as a full service emergency department, operating rooms, and an endoscopy lab. It will also include a comprehensive imaging center with x-ray, CT, MRI, and ultrasound, and non-invasive cardiac imaging. The new building will connect to the current CHI Memorial Parkway building creating a single campus geared toward establishing a central location for inpatient and outpatient services.
“CHI Memorial has been committed to this community for nearly 30 years,” said Janelle Reilly, CHI Memorial market CEO. “Bringing more services to a convenient, patient-friendly campus that is close to a major interstate and in the epicenter of local commercial and residential growth will provide greater access to comprehensive healthcare closer to home. It’s what the people of North Georgia need and deserve, and we are happy to partner with them on this journey.”
