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).

Back in 2012, the late Larry Dellinger, having spent over half a century in the newspaper business, saw that the times had changed.  People were getting their news from the internet--more and more every day.  That's when he decided to start the Lincoln Herald.  

A 2018 survey of  US adults found that 64% at least sometimes get news from a news website or app, about the same percentage (64%) as those who said they watch local TV news.  Almost half (47%) of adults get news at least sometimes from a social media site. That exceeds the 41% who read newspapers in print. TV and print actually lost ground from a similar survey conducted in 2016, while digital made advances in preference since then.

Unlike most newspapers, you can read the articles the Lincoln Herald publishes FREE.  We even post links to all of them on Facebook and Twitter; and when you sign up for our FREE email service, we'll send you an email every day with links to our articles posted since the previous day's email.  That way, you won't miss the latest news, obituaries, sports and other items of interest for Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba and Cleveland counties.   

To make sure you get the latest updates, also like our Facebook page at and follow us on Twitter @LincolnHerald20.
