The much-anticipated Novant Health John M. and Claudia W. Belk Heart and Vascular Institute and Edward I. and Agnes B. Weisiger Cancer Center brings top-notch heart and cancer care together in one medical center. Read the full case study here.

This seven-story, 260,000-square-foot facility is conveniently located in midtown Charlotte, from the intersection of Fourth Street and Hawthorne Lane to Third Street. A 1,000-space parking deck will be located on the Third Street side of the building. A skybridge will connect the new building with Presbyterian Medical Tower across the street.

This $165.9-million center will house state-of-the-art treatment options and equipment. For optimal patient care, it will allow a surgeon, radiation oncologist, medical oncologist and hematologist to easily work in synchrony. According to Dr. Saad Ehtisham, president of Presbyterian Medical Center, as quoted in the Charlotte Business Journal (April 22, 2019), “What’s remarkable about this building is its design with a healing environment in mind, holistic approach to bringing modalities between cancer and heart disease under one roof and using research as a conduit to bring the newest trials to our patients in the communities.”

The seven stories will include adult cardiology and cardiac surgery; breast cancer care, gynecology, integrative medicine and cancer risk and genetics; radiation oncology, cancer research, hematology and cellular therapy, thoracic and developmental therapeutics; gastrourinary, gastrointestinal and head and neck treatments; and an 80-bay infusion center and research pharmacy. There will also be a rehabilitation area, wellness center conference room, café and retail pharmacy.
