Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta cut the ribbon on its new, 48,000-square-foot outpatient care center in Kennesaw on Tuesday, adding a variety of specialists and services to its medical campus on Big Shanty Road.

With this expansion, the Town Center campus will be a one-stop shop for many of the community’s specialized pediatric healthcare needs.”
