The 36-bed facility features two operating rooms, a 15-room emergency department and 12 observation beds, according to the report. Services include general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, heart, vascular and cancer care, orthopedics and outpatient surgery.
“The technology and services being brought into this community are robust and, I would say, even beyond that, this is definitely this community’s hospital,” Ben Brodersen, president and chief operating officer of Novant Health Ballantyne Medical, told Charlotte Business Journal. “But it’s a wonderful thing to know that if you come to this hospital and you need a higher level of care, we have the resources to get you to whatever that appropriate place of care is quickly and safely.
