The station is located on the Fulton and DeKalb County border and the MARTA owned property for this station lies both in Sandy Springs and Brookhaven. The portion in DeKalb County is currently not developed and is a part of MARTA's portfolio for potential transit-oriented development. Of note, the station was constructed in 1996 when this portion of Fulton County was unincorporated; Sandy Springs was incorporated ten years later.
As of April 2006[update], 1,943 daily fares were collected at the gates.
Medical Center has 200 daily parking spaces available for MARTA users, which are located at the lower level of St. Joseph's parking deck. Daily parking (less than 24 hours) is free; long-term parking is prohibited, as the hospital is closed to visitors at night. In order to limit parking to MARTA users, the parking ticket must be validated inside of the fare gate area to exit the parking deck.
