The new facility aims to be a one-stop healthcare destination.

Novant Health has celebrated the start of site work for the campus that will be home to Novant Health Scotts Hill Medical Center. The multi-structure facility will be a one-stop healthcare destination for residents of northern New Hanover and eastern Pender counties.

The Scotts Hill campus includes several accommodations specifically designed to respond to community needs, shorten travel and provide convenience. One of the features is both medical oncology and radiation oncology in one location.

The campus will also offer state-of-the-art cardiac imaging and rehabilitation services, helping improve health and quality of life for those with heart disease, the most common cause of death for men and women in the United States. Cardiac rehabilitation is an individualized treatment plan constructed by a cardiac physio rehabilitation specialist. Designed to strengthen the heart, the plan may include a comprehensive charted course for everything from food to activity to medication.

The state of North Carolina projects that by the end of this decade, 33,000 additional people could call New Hanover County home, and Pender County could add more than 14,000. Scotts Hill Medical Center will be a vital part of assuring this growing community has access to high-quality health care by bringing new medical resources, services and providers to the region.

The 200,000-square-foot community hospital will have a surgical focus, including operating rooms, procedure rooms and space dedicated to gastroenterology (digestive system care) and endoscopy (a procedure used to examine the esophagus and stomach). Construction of the hospital is planned to take approximately two and a half years.

The new hospital will connect to the existing Novant Health Emergency Department – Scotts Hill. The emergency department has provided care in the community since 2015 and will continue to enhance its patient-centered services as part of the new campus. The site also includes Novant Health Scotts Hill Outpatient Surgery Center.

Building on the emergency department’s relationship with New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, the campus will continue to be part of the New Hanover Regional Medical Center network.
