WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center announced Tuesday the completion of phase 1 construction at Davie Medical Center – Bermuda Run.
The $89 million project includes Medical Plaza One (a medical office building with cardiac and orthopaedic rehabilitation facilities, lab services and a pharmacy) and Medical Plaza Two (24/7 Emergency Department for adults and children; outpatient surgery services in orthopaedic, eye, hand, foot and ankle procedures; clinics in ophthalmology, cardiology, neurology and podiatry and extensive diagnostic imaging capabilities in cardiology and neurology in addition to digital mammography, CT, mobile MRI and X-ray).
Davie Medical Center – Bermuda Run is located on an 88-acre site at the intersection of Interstate 40 and State Highway 801. Approximately 40 acres of the site, River Hill Commons, is designated for commercial development. Preliminary engineering at the site began in March 2012.
Phase 1 of the development was delivered on time and on budget. When the Bermuda Run campus officially opens Monday (Oct. 14), approximately 200 employees will work there.
“This development would not have been possible without the tireless commitment of Davie County leaders and citizens,” said John D. McConnell, M.D., chief executive officer, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. “I want to thank all of these partners, our construction and design teams, their subcontractors and the 1,547 construction employees who have created this beautiful new facility that brings new health care services and technology to the citizens of Davie County. When completed, this campus will represent a $120 million dollar investment in the health care of Davie County.”
“This is a beautiful, top-notch medical facility that Davie County residents should be proud of,” said Thomas E. Sibert, M.D., president and chief operating officer, Wake Forest Baptist Health. “We especially look to continuing to work with private physicians in the county, with the goal of improving the health of those in the county and its surrounding communities. Together, we can provide a wide range of clinical and surgical services and, when needed, have the resources of an academic medical center.”
