Wilson, North Carolina, is a growing community less than an hour from the state capital. In a town best known for whirligigs and barbeque, Wilson Medical Center wants to be known for quality healthcare close to home. To convey that message, the hospital partnered with HMK Architects to modernize its aging facilities, some of which date back to 1964. The project, which is being completed over a number of phases, seeks to provide a new healthcare experience for the community. New units for behavioral health, cardiovascular health, sleep study, dialysis, and patient rooms have already been completed, along with new infrastructure for mobile imaging services and improved circulation. Currently under construction is work to complete a Women’s and Children’s unit for the facility, and renovate additional patient rooms. A modernization of the building’s exterior, a med/surg unit, and an improved patient experience near the main entrances is in the future phases. Once completed, the project will significantly expand access to healthcare services for the residents of a vibrant, growing region.
