CaroMont Health, Belmont Campus

For several years, occupancy at the existing 435-bed CaroMont Health Belmont Campus in Gastonia exceeded the target rate of 75% capacity. With nearly 250,000 patient encounters a year, state regulators indicated the facility needed at least 33 additional hospital beds. Another 64 would be required by 2020.

CaroMont Health Meets Growing Healthcare Needs with Expansion and Partnership

CaroMont Health commissioned McMillan Pazdan Smith to design a new 60- to 80-bed hospital in Belmont, NC to accommodate the growing patient population. The four-story hospital includes two floors of inpatient bed units above two floors of diagnostic and treatment departments. The inpatient floors provide space for efficient staff operations with natural light. A large plaza with outdoor seating gives staff and family ran area for respite.

Through a partnership with Belmont Abbey College, CaroMont Health intends to enter a long-term agreement to lease the land. They will also support the college’s future plans for health science programs through clinical rotation opportunities at the new hospital. Because of its location, the aesthetic of the new hospital building strikes a balance between the CaroMont brand and the Belmont Abbey campus.
