The health system did not provide a new opening date for the 36-bed community hospital.
The opening of Novant Health Ballantyne Medical Center, scheduled to begin admitting patients today, has been "temporarily postponed pending the completion of state surveys," the Charlotte, NC-based health system says.
"We look forward to welcoming patients in the near future," Novant says in a brief media statement.
The health system did not elaborate on the nature of the surveys, nor did it provide a new opening date for the hospital. An adjoining 57,509 square-foot medical office building on the 38-acre campus in Charlotte opened today, as scheduled.
Novant held a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 30 for the 168,181 square-foot, $154 million, 36-bed community hospital, which the health system says "is strategically positioned to provide health care services to the rapidly growing suburban population in and around southern Mecklenburg County."
The hospital will provide emergency and inpatient services, diagnostic and surgical care, maternity care, and on-site specialty care services, including women's health, orthopedics and cancer.
"We recognize that this is not only a growing region, but one that's home to a diverse population that stretches across two states and ranges from young families to older adults, each with unique health care needs," says Ben Brodersen, president / COO of Novant health Ballantyne Medical Center.
"Ballantyne Medical Center and the outpatient services we co-located on campus were designed with the needs of the community in mind, including the flexibility to grow and add services as needed," Brodersen says.
“We look forward to welcoming patients in the near future.”
