Lincolnton, NC—Carolinas Medical Center (CMC)-Lincoln has begun construction of a new medical office building that will expand the range of services currently offered by the hospital to meet growing community needs. The expansion will provide space for 35 physicians in 13 specialties on the campus of CMC-Lincoln.
Construction of the new facility, CMC-Lincoln Medical Plaza II, is expected to be complete by January 2014. It will include three floors totaling 60,000 square feet of office space. Lincoln Family Practice and Lakemont Family Medicine will be relocated to the new building to provide patients of all ages with convenient access to medical care. Additionally, Medical Plaza II will offer quick and easier access to CMC-Lincoln's main hospital building and CMC-Lincoln Medical Plaza I through a new covered walkway connector.
"By opening Medical Plaza II, CMC-Lincoln is expanding the level of comprehensive care that the hospital offers, which better enables us to serve the immediate and long-term needs of our residents," said Pete Acker, president of CMC-Lincoln. "This new space provides patients with access to a wide range of specialty services and advanced treatment methods, without needing to travel far from home."
Services that will be offered at the new medical office building include:
Primary care physicians
A range of orthopedic services, including hip and knee, sports medicine, and the likely addition of spine and general orthopedics in the future.
Levine Cancer Institute, through CMC-Lincoln’s charter member relationship to the Institute
Infusion services and a healing garden for patients receiving treatment through Levine Cancer Institute
Other specialty practices including endocrinology, pediatrics, and women's services
The new building illustrates CMC-Lincoln's commitment to providing high-quality, accessible care to patients through innovative and unique methods. Medical Plaza II will offer increased patient engagement, higher efficiency, a new "self-rooming" concept, enhanced integrative care and clinical collaboration, and a conducive environment for treating patients.
