GREENVILLE, NC – The town of Belhaven denied Vidant Health’s building plans and revoked a previously-issued building permit for a new 24-hour modern health care facility and helipad for integrated multi-specialty medical care and emergency medical transport in the Belhaven area. The town granted the building permit on Aug. 1, 2014. On Aug. 28, Vidant Health received notification that the town had revoked the permit. 

“We are disappointed that the town of Belhaven would revoke a permit that they had already granted,” said Dr. David Herman, CEO of Vidant Health. “Belhaven and the region would benefit from this new facility. We remain committed to pursuing health care solutions that will serve this region.” 

In December, 2013, Vidant Health purchased 19.4 acres between the Post Office and the Food Lion shopping center, south of Highway 264. The property at 601 Old County Road is within walking distance for Belhaven residents, and serviceable by local utility operators. 

The new facility will include all Vidant Medical Group physicians, staff and services under one roof, and have space available for specialists who see patients in this community. The site plan also includes a new helipad in Belhaven for emergency transports to a higher level of care for patients when needed. Plans and renderings for the proposed $4.2 million multi specialty clinic can be foundhere

Today, Vidant Health is providing care at the 24/7 care clinic and at the three physician practices in Belhaven.
