Vidant Health moves forward with plans for Belhaven multispecialty clinic

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Vidant Health says it will move forward with its plans for a multispecialty clinic in Belhaven.

The new, 12,000-square-foot facility will be located at 601 Old County Road, between the Post Office and the Food Lion shopping center, south of Highway 264.

Design and construction should be complete in about 18 months.

“In September, the Vidant Pungo Hospital Board of Directors voted to move forward with plans to provide sustainable health care by building the new 24-hour clinic to serve eastern Beaufort and Hyde counties,” said Roger Robertson, President of Vidant Community Hospitals.  “We will continue to work with state and local officials as we transition care to our interim facilities and eventually over to the new clinic.”

The project cost will be more than $4.2 million.

The facility will include an adjacent helipad for quick transport. The multispecialty clinic will offer primary and specialty care, urgent and emergent care 24-hours a day. The new facility will also treat patients regardless of their ability to pay.

When the current hospital closes, physician and outpatient services will be available at the Vidant Medical Group practices in Belhaven. Twenty-four hour care will be available at Vidant Family Medicine on Haslin Street in Belhaven. Primary and specialty care will be offered at the Vidant Family Medicine locations on Allen and Water streets in Belhaven.
