LINCOLNTON, N.C., June 6, 2014 – Carolinas HealthCare System has brought an innovative, more patient-focused care model to Lincoln County with the opening of a new medical plaza in Lincolnton.

Now open, Lincoln Medical Plaza II, located at 447 McAlister Road on the campus of CMC-Lincoln, offers a new and unique healthcare experience focused on patient convenience. The check-in process is centralized among the building’s practices, significantly shortening patients’ initial wait time. As part of its hotel-style, self-rooming concept, patients proceed directly to their care rooms, further streamlining the care visit.

Patients receive all services, including height, weight and blood pressure checks, once they are inside in the care room, providing for a higher level of privacy and comfort. Lab and imaging services are provided on-site, allowing for quicker, more convenient results. Lastly, depending on the nature of their visit, patients may take advantage of in-room check out, obtaining prescriptions and discharge information in their room and avoiding an extra stop before leaving the building.

“We designed this new and innovative care model with the principal focus on what our patients want and need,” said Glendyne Glassman, vice president of administration for Carolinas HealthCare System’s Medical Group. “The result is an enhanced experience for our patients, who have so far responded very positively to the new concept.”

Lincoln Medical Plaza II houses a variety of primary and specialty care practices, which completed the move to the new building in May. Practices include LakeMont Family and Pediatric Medicine; Levine Cancer Institute-Lincoln; Lincoln Infusion Center; Lincoln Family Practice; McAlister OB/GYN Associates; and Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute.

“We’re very proud to be able to offer this new model of care to our community,” said Pete Acker, president of CMC-Lincoln. “We’re committed to providing our patients with the right type of care, and our new medical plaza is a shining example of that.”

The public is invited to visit and tour the new facility at a community open house on Saturday, June 14, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
