WellStar granted approval to build Hiram hospital

HIRAM, Ga. -- The Georgia Department of Community Health gave Certificate of Need (CON) approval for WellStar Health System to build a replacement hospital in Paulding County.

Construction on the $125 million hospital in Hiram will begin next week, WellStar said. It will replace the current WellStar Paulding Hospital in Dallas.

The facility will include 30 adult emergency exam rooms, 10 pediatric emergency exam rooms and six surgery suites. It will open in April 2014 with 56 inpatient beds and will grow to 112 beds by 2016.

The hospital will also bring an estimated 300 new jobs to Paulding County.
