Northeast Georgia Health System has broken ground on a new medical plaza at the corner of Buford Highway and South Lee Street.

Set to open in spring 2022, the three-story, 90,000-square-foot facility will be home to the following:

  • A new urgent care location that will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days per week
  • Cardiology services provided by The Heart Center of Northeast Georgia Medical Center
  • Northeast Georgia Physician Group services, including family medicine, OB/GYN, urology, sports medicine, orthopedic surgery and general surgery services
  • A new imaging center offering MRIs, CT scans, X-rays, mammograms, ultrasounds, bone density scans and more
  • An on-site lab

“This new, multi-tenant building strengthens our commitment to serving this community with one convenient location that provides a wide range of healthcare services,” said Carol Burrell, president and CEO of NGHS. “This Medical Plaza will mean more available appointments, with less lead time and much less travel.”

NGHS expects the Buford medical plaza to see more than 100,000 visits per year.

“Northeast Georgia Health System has been an outstanding partner with the City of Buford dating back to the 1990s, and they’ve involved us from the beginning of this project to preserve greenspace and integrate into our vision for the downtown area,” said Bryan Kerlin, Buford’s city manager. “It’s exciting to see this level of investment closer to the city limits, especially at such a highly visible intersection, and the Medical Plaza will provide an array of great healthcare services, which should help improve the health of so many people in this community.”
