Located in Mint Hill, N.C., the recently completed Mint Hill Medical Center provides residents of the growing Charlotte suburb with high-quality care in their own neighborhood. The full-service hospital was designed to feel like a destination, honing in on the region’s southern hospitality. The exterior features a mix of metal and stonework to give the building a modern aesthetic, while arched canopies and a porch full of rocking chairs create a welcoming environment.

At nearly 207,000 square feet, the three-story hospital and adjacent medical office building provide emergency, inpatient, and outpatient care with 36 inpatient beds; cardiology, orthopedic, emergency, surgery and women’s services; as well as advanced imaging, laboratory, and transitional care departments.

The private patient rooms feature attached bathrooms, sleeper sofas, and lighting and temperature controls for patient and family convenience and comfort. Additionally, nurse stations and supplies are decentralized, and computers are located at bedsides, which keeps providers close to patients and aligns with owner Novant Health’s approach to care.

The campus also features walking trails and multiple gardens to encourage physical activity. Inside the building, calming colors and floor-to-ceiling glass help bring the outside in.
