WILMINGTON, NC – The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics
are relocating to Autumn Hall on June 12 as they have outgrown their current space in the NHRMC Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital.
The Nunnelee Clinics will occupy the entire second floor of the NHRMC Medical Services at Autumn Hall
building off Eastwood Road, 510 Carolina Bay Dr., more than doubling its size to better serve pediatric patients and their families with highly specialized outpatient care.
“When we opened, we had about 5,000 patient visits a year,” said Vanessa Van Gilder, manager of the Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics. “We now average 27,000 patient visits a year so there is clearly a need for specialized care in our region. We are excited about this beautiful new space that allows our providers to deliver exceptional care in a soothing environment to children facing chronic and serious conditions and diseases.”
This new facility will bring together the comprehensive clinical services provided by a team of more than 20 physician specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and providers from NHRMC and Coastal Children’s Services. The new location is 20,000 square feet, up from its current location of 8,500 square feet. The facility will include 39 exam rooms, triple the existing 13 exam rooms, and six nurse’s stations, up from one nurse’s station in the current location.
The Nunnelee Pediatric Specialty Clinics will continue to offer pediatric services for children with a wide range of medical conditions including cardiology, cleft and craniomaxillofacial surgery; endocrinology; gastroenterology and feeding; hematology; neonatal intensive care development; neurology; neurosurgery; pediatric surgery; and pulmonology.
Nunnelee providers will coordinate inpatient medical treatment through the NHRMC Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital as specialized care for patients with acute and chronic illnesses are needed.
The project is designed by LS3P and constructed by Monteith Construction. The total cost of the project, including construction, equipment, furniture and permitting, is $3.1 million.
