Emory Johns Creek Hospital expands services north on 141 corridor
Woodruff Health Sciences Center | Feb. 13, 2015
"Our new locations allow us to provide extended access to existing imaging services and provide new treatment options to meet the health care needs in Johns Creek and surrounding communities," says Marilyn Margolis, CEO of Emory Johns Creek.
The new Emory Johns Creek Hospital Hyperbarics and Wound Care Services center is located on the second floor of the Physicians Immediate Med building on 2575 Peachtree Parkway, Cumming, Ga., at the intersection of Mathis Airport Road and Hwy. 141. The 3,000 square-foot office space provides treatment for patients with complex or non-healing wounds caused by diseases such as diabetes and vascular disease. The need for severe wound care treatment has grown in the past decade as a result of an aging population and higher incidences of diseases that cause these types of wounds. Patients undergoing cancer treatments can also develop wounds and lesions that are difficult to heal.
Carolyn Davidson, program director of the new center says, "When we pair our superior wound healing services and advanced modalities with a compassionate interdisciplinary approach, we do so much more than treat wounds. We truly believe in what we're doing here to make people whole again."
The Johns Creek center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is one of four such centers in the Emory Healthcare Network. Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital and Emory University Hospital Midtown also offer hyperbaric and wound care treatments, as does Emory affiliate Southern Regional Medical Center.
Emory Johns Creek has also opened a satellite imaging center at 634 Peachtree Parkway in Cumming to offer expanded access to general diagnostic imaging services and CT scans. The 2,299 square-foot Emory Johns Creek Hospital Imaging Center, which previously operated under Saint Joseph's Hospital, is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
"Our new location not only provides a convenient outpatient imaging location for patients in South Forsyth, it also provides additional access to imaging for our physicians," says Chrystal Barnes, director of Imaging Services at Emory Johns Creek Hospital.For a complete list of services and locations at Emory Johns Creek Hospital, call 678-474-8200 or visit http://emoryjohnscreek.com/medical-services/.
