A new nine-story patient tower on the main campus of CoxHealth.
Measuring in at 310,000 square feet, this space is intended to help meet the needs of CoxHealth’s growing patient population and allow the hospital to offer more private rooms. The tower is housing a Women and Children’s Hospital and Neuroscience Hospital, with floors ready for a future expansion.

There are 32 private exam and treatment rooms as well as eight observation beds planned for the new emergency department. Providers can care for 55,000–60,000 patients each year in the space, and improved flow should allow for quicker patient access to services.
