CLEMMONS, N.C. — Officials at Novant Health’s Clemmons Medical Center opened the door to the community Sunday, and many people are hoping that more doors will open as a result.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the new medical center may be the boost Clemmons needs to spark an economic renaissance along the Interstate 40 corridor and beyond, Mayor John Bost said after a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the new hospital’s lobby.
“This is a new day for Clemmons,” he said, according to The Journal.
The hospital officially opens April 3 and will have 100 employees. It will have an emergency room with 12 bays, two operating rooms, labs and an imaging center where patients can have ultrasounds, X-rays, MRIs and CT scans performed.
The new $25.8 million, 43,500-square-foot center is on Harper Road next to Morgan Elementary School. Its completion is part of a long-anticipated growth in health care in the Clemmons area.
Last April, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center opened a two-building campus on a 1.5-acre tract on Lewisville-Clemmons Road.
