Vidant Healthplex-Wilson is officially open for business. We cut the ribbon on Thursday and celebrated the great work required on behalf of many to get us to this point. We are excited to open this state-of-the-art facility and look forward to welcoming patients on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The layout of the 30,965 square-foot building will help minimize wait time and improve provider and patient interaction. The healthplex will also offer patient education and allows for an expanded schedule, with providers available seven days a week.
More importantly, we’ll be able to provide the care patients need close to home. It’s the best of both worlds — we’ll be able to connect to the resources of Vidant Health while providing additional treatment options for patients in Wilson and surrounding communities, so they don’t have to travel.
The end result is care that is convenient, comprehensive and current, delivered compassionately by our care teams, friends, neighbors and families. I’m honored to be serving alongside many wonderful colleagues, most of whom are from Wilson or the surrounding area.
The mission of Vidant is to improve the health and well-being of eastern North Carolina. This building is the latest example of our commitment to this region. We’re doing this for a community that matters greatly to us, one we feel deserves the very best.
Thank you for your support of Vidant Healthplex-Wilson. We look forward to serving you.
