The Novant Health Ballantyne Medical Center is set to officially open on 12 June and is expected to meet the healthcare needs of the growing suburban population in southern Mecklenburg County.
It will offer a range of services, including emergency and inpatient care, diagnostic and surgical services, maternity care and speciality care in areas such as women’s health, orthopaedics and cancer.
The 168,181ft² facility features an emergency department, 36 patient beds, a labour and delivery area, diagnostic equipment and surgical operating suites.
A medical office building will also be located on-site, providing outpatient imaging and speciality care services.
The medical office building and hospital are situated on a 38-acre site, which was previously home to the Hall Family Farm.

“Like our other community hospitals, Ballantyne Medical Center will serve as a state-of-the-art medical facility and allow patients to receive the care they need close to home.”
Novant Health Ballantyne Medical Center president Ben Brodersen said: “Ballantyne Medical Center and the outpatient services we co-located on campus were designed with the needs of the community in mind, including the flexibility to grow and add services as needed.
