UNC Health Care medical office building expansions are underway, with projects designed to improve access to health care and better connect communities to resources.
Construction of the 48-acre Eastowne medical park–located at 15-501 and Eastowne Drive in Chapel Hill–began with the demolition of four Eastowne buildings last December. Upon completion, the new six-story building will house a multitude of medical specialties including allergy, benign hematology, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, infectious disease, internal medicine, nephrology, pulmonary, rheumatology and urology.
Other medical services will include an infusion center, a diagnostic radiology suite, and laboratory services. A retail pharmacy and a coffee kiosk offering light food items will be available for both staff and patient convenience. This project also includes an adjacent multi-level parking deck. The building is scheduled to be completed in the Fall of 2020.
Meanwhile, Panther Creek will bring new adult services to Wake County and relocate existing Panther Creek practices. The UNC Panther Creek Medical Office Building is an expansion in Northwestern Cary on 20 acres between Brier Creek and Apex, near Panther Creek High School. The goal is to consolidate primary care clinics and strengthen the primary care footprint and community’s relationship with specialists. A Specialty Care Suite will include faculty physicians from the UNC Department Medicine, representing internal medicine, cardiology, nephrology, and pulmonology. Other departments from the UNC School of Medicine will include surgery and neurology. UNC Rex physicians will provide surgery, digestive healthcare, and heart and vascular services in the Specialty Care Suite.
