Almost from the moment hospital officials were handed the keys to the new Paulding Hospital, hospital officials knew this facility was going to be a success, and they were right. Soon after Paulding opened, patient rooms filled to capacity and it was obvious that the hospital would have to expand. The following article explains this expansion, which is being designed by CDH Partners.
“WellStar Paulding Hospital began construction recently to complete two previously unfinished floors and double the number of patient beds available in the two-year-old facility.
The work to finish the two floors will lead to 180 new jobs by mid-October, said Paulding County Commission Chairman David Austin, a member of the hospital’s regional board and the Paulding County Hospital Authority.
The nearly 50,000-square-foot buildout of the sixth and seventh floors will increase the facility’s beds from 56 to 112, said Mark Haney, president of WellStar Paulding Hospital.
“‘This expansion will allow us to better serve the community,’ Haney said in a news release. ‘Paulding County continues to grow and there is an immediate need for more space.'”
