Medical Office Building on Future Hospital Campus Set to Open in Braselton January 12 & 19

Published on January 06, 2015

The medical office building attached to the future Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Braselton is set to open next week. Medical Plaza B, located off Lanier Islands Parkway/Friendship Road one mile west of the intersection with Hwy. 211 (map provided below), will open on January 12 offering the following specialty practices and services:

  • Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG) Surgical Associates
  • NGPG Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine
  • NGPG Vascular Center
  • NGPG Neurosurgery
  • NGPG Bariatric and Metabolic Institute
  • NGPG Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgeons
  • NGPG Interventional Pain Medicine
  • NGPG Neurology
  • Cornerstone Surgery of Braselton, PC
  • NGMC Neurophysiology services (EEG and EMG)

On January 19, additional services will open, including:

  • The Heart Center of Northeast Georgia Medical Center
  • NGMC Cardiac Testing Lab



The opening of the five story, 113,000 square foot medical office building brings the community one step closer to the much-anticipated opening of the new 100-bed hospital, NGMC Braselton, set to open later this spring.  Many of the physician practices moving into Medical Plaza B are relocating from existing locations in Medical Plaza 1 or Thompson Mill Medical Offices.



The opening of Medical Plaza B marks another milestone in Northeast Georgia Health System’s efforts to provide health care closer to home for residents of Braselton and surrounding communities, says Anthony Williamson, president of the future Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton.

“While the hospital will not open until later in the spring, as our staff trains and readies the new facility to provide inpatient care, we wanted to open several new physician offices in Medical Plaza B to begin to orient the community and our practices to the new facilities,” says Williamson.  “This will allow our patients and visitors to become familiar with the campus, learn where to park and begin enjoying amenities like the new café.”

When it opens this spring, NGMC Braselton will bring new medical services – modeled around the programs of excellence at NGMC Gainesville – to the Greater Braselton community.  These include heart and vascular services, orthopedics and neurosciences, cancer treatment, surgery and emergency services.  The new Medical Plaza B complements the existing Medical Plaza 1, already located on the campus, which houses an urgent care center; outpatient imaging center and lab; physical, occupational and speech therapy; and more than 30 physician practices representing 27 medical specialties.

The best way to avoid infection is to avoid exposure. Here are simple steps you can take to lower your risk of catching or spreading illness:

  • Wear a mask – a cloth face cover can protect other people in case you are infected. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Avoid close contact – maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household. If someone in your household is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from them as well.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces to help prevent the spread of germs
  • Monitor your health daily –  Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
