In March 2015, Northside Health system broke ground on a new Northside Hospital in Canton, GA. The new 50-acre complex includes the hospital, medical office building, and 900 space parking lot. The new 7-story replacement hospital will house a cancer institute, surgical services, and a level 2 NICU. The building will also include a main patient care tower, women’s center, and adult and pediatric ED. Northside is looking to build a state-of-the-art facility that is expected to have better navigation than most hospitals using a recurrent design of nurses’ stations, which will be used as anchors. There also will be color cues to help visitors navigate the facility.
Beginning in 2013, Northside Hospital engaged Ross & Baruzzini | EDI to provide data center planning services to assist in planning a Disaster Recovery data center. Ross & Baruzzini | EDI provided an assessment of Northside’s existing data center portfolio followed by a needs and requirements meeting and a development of market options. Then in 2016, Ross & Baruzzini | EDI was selected to consult with Northside on their Data Center Renewal Project. The project includes helping Northside transition from an on premise data center to a collocation facility. Our specific tasks will include: Confirming current state, dependency mapping, developing IT growth models, disaster recovery planning, developing new requirements, colocation RFP review, and migration planning.
Ross & Baruzzini | EDI is providing programming, budgeting, and schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding and negotiation, and construction phase services. Ross & Baruzzini | EDI is also providing technology relocation management services.
