Piedmont Hospital Cafe

Piedmont Healthcare provides industry-leading healthcare throughout the state of Georgia. To increase patient capacity and support the growing Atlanta community, Piedmont renovated its main Atlanta campus and added a 16-floor tower. Leapley partnered with Piedmont and BDR to update the existing kitchen and cafe on-site without disrupting daily service to more than 1000 staff and patients. Leapley created and followed a multi-phased construction schedule to relocate the doctors’ dining facility while building the new space.
