Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center is on track to open in October and Dr. Andy Mueller, senior vice president for Novant Health and president of Novant Health’s greater Charlotte Market, has high hopes for it.
The new hospital is currently being built at 8110 Healthcare Loop in Mint Hill and staff for the facility has already begun being hired.
“We are excited that our plan is to go live with that hospital on Oct. 1 of this year. So it’s starting to really come up fast on us as far as that goes,” Mueller said.
Along with preparing the hospital to open, Novant Health is also working to set up clinics in the surrounding area to help treat patients as well as is currently treating patients at clinics set up at the site. He looks forward to all the different services Novant Health will be able to offer patients at the new hospital and feels it will be very beneficial to the people of Mint Hill and surrounding communities, Mueller said.
“We are largely finishing up the construction on the inside,” he said when discussing the current status of the hospital.
Right now, the work on the inside is focused on completing walls and floors. The weekend prior to the hospital opening, a celebration is being planned to help introduce the community to the new hospital and the services it will offer, Mueller said.
“Much like our other community hospitals, we really want the community to feel a sense of ownership with the facility. It’s their hospital,” he said.
They want to provide services needed by the community at the Mint Hill Medical Center and want people in the community to be a part of it, Mueller said.
“We’re super excited about the broad nature of the services we’re going to offer, everything from primary care to cancer services, cardiac services, advanced orthopedics. We’re really excited about creating a very accessible environment to everyone in the community, not just for the hospital but for our physician practices.
