Cape Fear Valley Medical Center announces temporary changes to main entrance traffic due to construction

By Staff Report, posted 2 months ago
The changes in traffic direction is so a crane can be moved to continue construction.

Beginning today, Friday, Dec. 1, through the weekend, the main front entrance and part of the driveway to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center will be closed. This is so that a construction crane can be removed, as part of the ongoing construction of the Valley Pavilion expansion. During this time, the main entrance and part of the main driveway will be closed to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic from 9 a.m. through Sunday evening.

All vehicles will be directed to the parking deck entrance that faces Owen Drive, where visitors will enter through the parking deck. During the closure, security and visitor management will be available to provide assistance.

Patients who are discharged during this time and need to be picked up will be transported to the Cancer Center entrance after they leave the discharge lounge. Laboring mothers will also park and enter through the Cancer Center entrance. Short stay patients scheduled for outpatient surgery on Friday will be discharged at the Melrose Road entrance.

Cape Fear Valley Medical Center began this construction project in September 2022, and the expansion is on track to be completed in early 2025. The $110 million expansion will add 100 beds to the facility’s capacity by building two new patient care floors on top of the existing Valley Pavilion section of the medical center. CEO Michael Nagowski estimated that the expansion, when completed, will create an additional 187 full-time equivalent positions at the medical center.

About 40 percent of the new beds will be designed as ICU beds, with the remaining beds designated for medical/surgery inpatient and observation. All of the beds will be located in private patient rooms. The additions will raise Valley Pavilion from five to seven stories. Plans also call for the inclusion of two rooftop helipads, which will allow patients to be taken by elevator directly into the hospital emergency department.
