Renovation plus 14,000-square-foot expansion estimated to cost $34.2 million
Cone Health, which now owns and operates the Alamance Regional Medical Center, has announced a $34.2 million project that includes a 14,000 square foot expansion of the Burlington hospital.
The $34.2 million project includes new and expanded heart care services, more interventional radiology offerings, and redesigned breast care facilities.
The project will add 14,000 square feet and renovate nearly 49,000 square feet at the medical center. It will move and nearly double the size of the Norville Breast Care Center.
“This is a major investment in the health of people in Alamance County,” says Alamance Regional Medical Center President Mark Gordon. “We have long strived to bring the highest-quality health care to Burlington. More options and more advanced care mean fewer people will need to leave the area for the care they require.”
A new “interventional lab” will be built alongside two recently modernized labs, according to Gordon. The Cone Health Heart & Vascular and Interventional Radiology Center at Alamance Regional will allow for growth as the population ages, he said the procedure lab will expand the types of advanced care performed at Alamance Regional.
A new CT scanner with specialized cardiac capabilities will be installed to handle growth and to expand services, according to Gordon. A new cardiovascular lab will be built, and two existing labs and pre and post procedure spaces enlarged and modernized, he says.
As part of the project, the Norville Breast Care Center will move from the hospital to a remodeled space in the Grandview building across from the hospital. This will increase the size of the center from 6,000 square feet to 14,000 square feet. It will also add a fourth 3D mammography unit and ultrasound rooms.
“This is all about convenience. Parking will be up front and close to the main entrance. Our goal is to make the Norville Breast Care Center an even more inviting and comfortable space,” adds Gordon.
Gordon estimated that it will take a little over two years to complete the project.
