Atrium Health has received approval from state officials for a certificate of need request to construct a new approximately $154m hospital in Cornelius, North Carolina, US.

The 160,000ft2, 30-bed hospital will be named Atrium Health Lake Norman.

After completion, the facility will have 20 medical or surgical acute care beds apart from the 30 licenced acute care beds. The hospital will also house six maternity suites and four intensive care unit beds.

In addition, eight observation beds, two operating rooms, a C-section operating room, eight emergency department bays, which include two for trauma cases, and a helipad are part of the new project.

The 30 licenced beds and two operating rooms will be moved from existing Atrium Health facilities.

Atrium Health Greater Charlotte region president Ken Haynes said: “With the population growth that has been taking place, this new hospital is a key piece of our mission to better meet the needs of residents in the area.

The new Atrium Health hospital will feature multiple imaging services such as mobile magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), digital radiography, two mobile X-ray units, ultrasound and computerised tomography (CT).

It will further provide laboratory and pharmacy services.

Atrium Health obtained approval for the certificate of need request in May this year, following an initial denial by the state. The approval comes after Atrium Health provided additional information as part of an appeal process settlement.

The new hospital is expected to open in 2024.

A not-for-profit health system, Atrium Health has about 70,000 teammates at 37 hospitals and nearly 1,350 care sites. The firm delivers care under the Wake Forest Baptist Health in North Carolina and Atrium Health Navicent in Georgia.

In March this year, Wake Forest Baptist Health announced plans to build a new outpatient centre for children.
