Sentara Healthcare (Norfolk, Va.) has broken ground on the new Sentara Albemarle Medical Center in Elizabeth City, N.C., which will replace the current 60-year-old facility.

The 88-bed hospital, scheduled to open in 2024, is being built on the 135-acre Sentara Albemarle Regional Health campus. It will be adjacent to a 60,000-square-foot medical office building (MOB), which is slated to open in early 2023.

The hospital will include a new linear accelerator and a new digital hub to improve connectivity to medical specialists.

Innovate Architecture of Norfolk (Norfolk) is the architect on the project.
