New Hospital Opens in Wilmington

READ MORE: New Hospital Opening
The new Betty H. Cameron Women and Children's Hospital admitted its first patients on Sunday. The $45,000,000 facility was paid for by a combination of hospital funds, community bonds and donations. It features large rooms with sleep sofas, cable and internet access as well as other sophisticated medical technologies. Hospital Director Barbara Buechler says the facility is designed so families can stay close during hospital stays. Crystal Justice, who was in labor for her third child, was one of the first patients. “This hospital is way advanced compared to the other hospitals I delivered at,” said Justice. The hospital has 149 beds and is still growing. Officials say a pediatric intensive care unit will open in November. It will be the only one in the region.

i hope they can use proper health and cleanliness practices..the rest of the hospital is a cesspool of infection!!!!!

Highly Visible

This new addition is very visible from the main Hospital entrance, and 17th Street...a striking new design with curved glass that blends with the existing Hospital and magnificent trees. Over the summer there was a grand opening for the public, which offered tours, refreshments, and a few medical screenings for those who signed up in advance. I was impressed by the tour.


Where is this hospital located?? This is the first i have heard of it.

It's there....

I'm pretty sure it is on the campus of New Hanover Co. Regional off of 17th St.

Re: Where?

It is located at the New Hanover Regional Hospital campus.
