Ortho Exterior RenderWILMINGTON, NC – New Hanover Regional Medical Center celebrated the construction of a new Orthopedic Hospital with a groundbreaking ceremony today. The NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital is being built above the NHRMC Surgical Pavilion on the medical center’s main campus.

With construction of the new hospital, the NHRMC Orthopedic program will bring its award-winning care to a new healing environment that offers easier access to highly-specialized surgical teams collaborating on every aspect of a patient’s health.

The hospital will provide comprehensive inpatient orthopedic care to help thousands of patients regain mobility and strength to do the things they love. The facility will include:
• 135,260 square feet of new space
• 3 new floors
• 108 patient beds
• 5 new operating rooms

The NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital team performs approximately 9,000 procedures each year and includes more than 20 orthopedic surgeons and more than 100 specially-trained staff.

The project advances NHRMC’s commitment to providing excellent care to the communities of southeastern North Carolina, and will bring together the comprehensive clinical resources of NHRMC with the successful culture and environment for patients that has been developed by the NHRMC Orthopedic Hospital team over many years.

The project is estimated for completion in 2019 and is designed by LS3P and constructed by Rodgers Builders. The total cost, including construction and equipment, is estimated to be $91 million.
