Sentara Healthcare has broken ground in Elizabeth City, North Carolina on its new Sentara Albemarle Regional Health Campus. It will be located on a 135-acre campus that will also set aside three acres for a new headquarters building for the Pasquotank/Camden EMS.
The first phase is a new two-story, 60,000-square-foot medical office building slated to open in 2022, to be followed later by an 80-bed hospital in 2024. The new hospital will replace the current 60-year-old facility. The replacement hospital will feature a high-efficiency, patient-centric layout representing the trend toward preventive care, outpatient services using remote technologies and minimal hospital stays.
The project team includes primary contractor Whiting-Turner and Innovate Architecture.
