WellStar Health System has signed a contract to purchase 127 acres located in the Cedarcrest Road/Seven Hills Parkway corridor in North Paulding County. The contract includes a pledged donation to the WellStar Foundation in excess of $5 million.
“WellStar is purchasing land to meet the tremendous growth in North Cobb, West Cobb and Paulding County,” said Gregory L. Simone, M.D., president and CEO of WellStar Health System. “The addition of this property allows WellStar flexibility when expanding healthcare services. The purchase of this property is a joint partnership between WellStar, the Paulding County Commissioners and the developer.”
WellStar has opened an 80,000 sq. ft. physician center on the property located in Hiram, GA, which includes new and expanded specialty practices. Also, WellStar is currently in a zoning approval process for land located in Acworth on the Cobb County side. These campuses will be designed to complement one another and address the community’s long-term healthcare needs.
