Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center Opens New Patient Tower

Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center today opened its new four-story, 60,000-square-foot patient tower that includes 44 additional patient rooms, two additional procedure rooms, an operating room and renovations to several hospital areas. With this $50 million expansion, Huntersville Medical Center becomes a 139-bed hospital situated on a 29-acre campus.

“Over the past few years, we’ve seen a sharp rise in patient encounters due to the tremendous growth of the Huntersville area,” said Mike Riley, Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center president and chief operating officer. “We made this investment to not only meet this demand and alleviate some capacity issues, but also to ensure we’re able to deliver the remarkable patient experience that our community deserves.”

The expansion includes two new beds in the existing intensive care unit as well as two new beds in the neonatal intensive care unit, which increases the number of level 3 NICU beds to four. Twenty-two of the 44 additional rooms are designated labor and delivery recovery rooms to help meet demand. In 2018, 1,734 babies were born at Huntersville Medical Center, compared to 610 births in 2004, its first year of operation.

Last year at Huntersville Medical Center, its 750 employees and 400-plus members of the medical staff served a total of 84,294 patients, which includes:

  • 27,092 inpatient days of care
  • 5,377 surgical services
  • More than 80,000 imaging procedures
  • 39,692 emergency room visits, up from 21,963 visits in 2004

Huntersville Medical Center opened in 2004 as a 50-bed community hospital. The medical center, located at 10030 Gilead Road, has expanded access to comprehensive services in addition to several facility expansions over the years. Equipped to treat complex heart disorders in its state-of-the-art catheterization lab and provide compassionate, personalized cancer care in its robust infusion center, Huntersville Medical Center is positioned to serve the growing Huntersville community and their health care needs. Outpatient care is available at more than 30 Novant Health Medical Group clinic locations in Huntersville and surrounding areas.

“I’m proud of Novant Health’s commitment to ensuring our community has access to quality state-of-the-art care, right here, close to home,” said Riley. “This investment addresses our long-term sustainability and ensures we’re able to grow in the specialty areas our patients need.”
