Northside Hospital is seeking to replace its Cherokee County facility with a new $250 million hospital.

If Northside gets permission from the state, the replacement facility would open in 2015 and would include an 84-bed hospital, a women’s center, a medical office building and a cancer center.

Hospitals must receive state permission for major construction projects, including replacement facilities, by obtaining a certificate of need.

Northside announced its hospital relocation plans Thursday.

It has been joint owner of the current Canton facility, called Northside Hospital-Cherokee, since 1997, and acquired the rest of the ownership interest in 2009.

The original facility opened in 1962.

The new hospital would be near I-575 at the Georgia Highway 20 exit, less than three miles from the current location, which has limitations and capacity constraints, Northside said.

Northside also operates hospitals in Atlanta and Cumming.
