Breaking ground on UNC Hospitals Hillsborough Campus!
Officials and community members gathered at the site of UNC Hospitals Hillsborough Campus for a ground breaking on Wednesday, April 20. The hospital will be located in the Waterstone development right off of I-40.
The hospital will be a two-phase, $200 million project. Construction on the first phase will begin in early May and will include a 60,000 square-foot physician office building, which is set to open in 2013.
Phase two should begin in 2012 and includes the hospital itself, complete with 50 acute care beds, 18 intensive care beds, six operating rooms, two procedure rooms and an emergency department. The entire project is set for completion in 2015.
