All-access clinic served nearly 400 patients in July. Planning for new $4.2 million, 12,000-square-foot multispecialty clinic moves ahead.

 

GREENVILLE, NC – Today Vidant Health announced new updates in services and leadership at the 24/7 care clinic in Belhaven serving the town and surrounded communities. Since expanding hours on July 1, the clinic has served nearly 400 patients and offers primary and urgent care.  

Services and highlights include:

- The Urgent Care Clinic remains open 24/7 and is staffed with outstanding physicians, nurses, and staff that were recently working in the emergency department and continue to provide excellent care to all patients.

- Expanded radiology equipment and services. 

- Appointment of Dr. Gregory Jones as Medical Director of 24/7 Belhaven clinic.


“We want Belhaven and the surrounding communities to know that Vidant is here to stay,” said Roger Robertson, President of Vidant Community Hospitals. “We are open 24/7 for patients with  medical needs, and our trained team of doctors, nurses and staff continue to provide the highest quality care to the patients they see.”  


At the same time, Vidant continues to move forward with plans to build a new 12,000-square-foot, $4.2 million multispecialty clinic in Belhaven to address the long term health care needs of the community. The property, purchased in late 2013 by Vidant, is located at 601 Old County Road, between the Post Office and the Food Lion shopping center, south of Highway 264. Vidant has filed for the building permit with the Town of Belhaven.  Once approvals are finalized, Vidant will immediately begin construction with plans to open the facility within 12 to 18 months. 

The former Vidant Pungo Hospital and property are owned by Pantego Creek LLC.
