The Carolinas Medical Center Pineville expansion included a new six story tower, a single story expansion to the existing labor and delivery suite, and expansions to surgery and PACU. The new tower consists of medical/surgical inpatient units, a new intensive care unit, new peri-operative suite with pre-op, PACU, step down recovery spaces, and a variety of patient and administrative support spaces. The first floor of the tower houses new dietary services including a new kitchen and cafeteria. The surgical suite was expanded via a single story addition to house six new operating rooms. New labor and delivery rooms and nursery units (NICU and well baby units) are included in the new construction area.
