Novant Huntersville to expand


Nov. 18. By Dave Vieser. Novant Hospital, located on Gilead Road in Huntersville, will be adding a new wing to accommodate the growing number of patients in Lake Norman. The addition should be completed by late 2018, or early 2019, according to Mike Riley, president and CEO.

“Like the area around us, our hospital is literally bursting at the seams and we need more room and facilities to serve our growing number of patients,” Riley said. “The addition will encompass 44 new private beds, an additional OR and additional ICU care facilities.”

Currently, Novant Huntersville has 91 beds, and offers a full range of services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including maternity, surgery, cardiovascular and cancer care. Novant Huntersville was built a decade ago and was licensed as a 50-bed acute care hospital.

“We’re very excited about this addition and look forward to having our expert medical team deliver the care needed to more and more patients closer to home,” Riley said. Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center first opened its doors in 2004 as a 50-bed hospital.

In September 2012, NHHMC opened its new two-floor vertical expansion with 15 new beds, bringing the total bed count up to 75 beds. In 2014, the hospital received approval to transfer 16 beds from Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center bringing the bed count to 91. That project would add a three-story, 70,000-square-foot addition to the Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center.
