Gresham Smith recently completed the full-service hospital and physician’s plaza that is Novant Health’s Mint Hill Medical Center located in Mint Hill, North Carolina.
The nearly 207,000-square-foot, three-story facility was designed to feel like a destination. On the exterior, a mix of metal and stonework ties into the site’s surroundings while arched canopies and rocking chairs create a welcoming environment. Inside the building, soothing colors, floor-to-ceiling glass corridors and views of the campus’ multiple gardens and walking trails bring the outdoors in, flooding the space with natural light and fostering a healing environment.
The full-service 36-bed hospital and adjacent medical office building houses cardiology, emergency, surgery, and women’s services, as well as advanced imaging, laboratory and transitional care departments. The hospital’s all private, standardized patient rooms with attached bathrooms, sleeper sofas, lighting and temperature controls, and USB charging ports provide comfort and convenience for patients and visitors. Decentralized nurse stations and supplies and bedside computers for charting keep care close to patients in accordance with Novant Health’s approach to care.
