The six-story tower adjacent to Vidant Medical Center consolidates services previously performed at the hospital and nearby Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center. The tower opened to patients in March and includes an outpatient clinic, imaging center and 96 inpatient rooms. The center’s 60 infusion areas overlook outdoor healing gardens with a labyrinth, rock fountains, pergola and other calming features. Technology is part of the design: Connected conference rooms link caregivers with Vidant Health employees across the system, which covers 29 eastern N.C. counties, and a real-time locating system uses technology similar to GPS to track people and equipment within the center. As of mid-October, Vidant’s foundation had raised $43 million toward a goal of $50 million to help fund the center, including $10 million from Eddie Smith, owner and CEO of Grady-White Boats, and his wife, Jo Allison.
