CaroMont Health, operator of CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia, is planning to build a second hospital in Belmont, part of a $325 million investment in Gaston County capital projects over the next five years.
In a partnership with Belmont Abbey College, the 60-to-80-room Belmont hospital is slated to be built along I-85 near exit 27 at Highway 273, adjacent to the college's athletic fields. CaroMont Health will lease about 40 acres for the $173 million hospital, which will be visible from I-85.
In addition to the new hospital at Belmont, CaroMont's plans include:
Critical Care Expansion at CaroMont Regional Medical Center
The construction of a second patient tower on the campus of CaroMont Regional Medical will expand critical care services at the hospital, an area that already sees large patient volumes. The planned expansion, currently estimated to open as early as 2022, will offer approximately 50 additional patient rooms.
Medical offices in Cramerton, Bessemer City, Gastonia
Also included is the construction of a 22,000-square-foot family medicine practice in Cramerton, expected to open later this year, and the opening of a new family medicine practice in Bessemer City, expected to open this summer. Still in development are plans for medical office buildings on and around the main hospital campus in Gastonia.
CaroMont Health CEO Chris Peek made the announcements last Friday morning (May 17th).
