Northeast Georgia Health System is developing a new 44-acre medical office park along Highway 60 in northern Hall County.

The first development in what will be called Thompson Bridge Medical Park will be a 14,000-square-foot, $10.5 million building called Medical Plaza 1 at the corner of Thompson Bridge Road and Southers Road. Medical Plaza 1 is tentatively planned to open in 2024 as the new home of NGPG Thompson Bridge, which will move from its current location.

The Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG) will continue to provide the same primary care and weight loss services it currently provides. The future location will also offer gynecology services, states a news release from NGHS.

“We’re thrilled to be expanding care options in this community,” says Northeast Georgia Physicians Group President and Chief Administrative Officer Daniel Tuffy. “NGPG and NGHS remain focused on growing for the greater good of our community, and this project will help us do that now and in the years to come.”

Thompson Bridge Medical Park is planned to be a mixed-use office park developed in several phases. A combination of one- and two-story buildings with a total of 200,000 sq. feet may eventually fill the park to serve the healthcare needs of the growing area. Construction is expected to begin this summer.

“Having a new space that will accommodate our patients even better than our practice does now will be such a welcomed change,” says Dr. Christy Wagner, a longtime physician at NGPG Thompson Bridge.

The Thompson Bridge Medical Park is one of several expansion projects the nonprofit health system is currently involved in under the campaign banner of “Growing the Greater Good.”

NGHS is investing more than one billion dollars in two major expansion projects on its hospital campuses in Gainesville and Braselton. A 34,000-square-foot medical plaza in Barrow County and a new hospital in Lumpkin County are among the other construction projects expanding the health system’s footprint across the region.

NGHS will add a fifth hospital campus to its portfolio when it takes over Habersham Medical Center by this July as part of an expedited Option to Purchase agreement signed earlier this month.
