We work with our partners at New Hanover Regional Medical Center to give you access to top-notch services at a location convenient to you.
Our Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, providing care from the same team of physicians who staff the emergency department at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
Surgery and Endoscopy
Local surgeons as well as those who travel from Wilmington allow you to have general surgical, endoscopy, gynecological, urological, podiatry and ophthalmological procedures closer to home.
If you are considering a skilled nursing facility for a loved one, we invite you to visit us. We provide a supporting and caring environment for patients who need help with activities of daily living due to physical impairment or illness. Pharmacy, respiratory therapy and physical, occupational and speech therapies are available on site for added convenience. Our skilled nursing facility is the only one directly affiliated with New Hanover Regional Medical Center, meaning all patient medical records are kept in one system and your care is coordinated directly with hospital providers.
This is the ideal setting for you if you no longer need the level of medical care provided in an acute care hospital, but still need skilled nursing and therapy before returning home. Here, you can get care around the clock in the safety of a hospital setting in the only swing bed facility directly affiliated with New Hanover Regional Medical Center. All patient medical records are kept in one secure system for better coordination of care with your healthcare team. We often serve those recovering from a major surgery, those recovering from a prolonged illness and those with wounds that need special care.
Our physical, occupational and speech therapists work with you at the bedside, in our therapy gym, and around the hospital to help you regain skills. We also provide outpatient rehabilitation care at our Health & Diagnostics - Rocky Point location.
Our Health & Diagnostic - Rocky Point location offers comprehensive testing services, including digital mammography and bone density scans.

If you would like a pastor or member of the clergy to visit you while you are in the hospital, talk to a staff member and we will contact them for you.
