Construction has been under way for the past few months on Carolinas Medical Center-Lincoln’s new expansion.
As the Times-News previously reported, the hospital broke ground on the facility, to be called Medical Plaza II, at the end of November.
The additional medical office will allow the hospital to expand the range of services it currently offers by housing a variety of specialty clinics.
Work on the shell of the building is about 30 percent complete, Stephanie Boothe, market communications representative for the hospital system, told the Times-News on Tuesday.
The entire shell is expected to be completed in July.
“Once the shell is completed, construction will begin on the individual office spaces inside,” she noted. “Clinical practices in the building will begin opening as the offices are completed, starting in the first quarter of 2014.”
The expansion will provide space for 35 physicians in 13 specialties to meet growing community needs on the CMC-Lincoln campus.
Both Lincoln Family Practice and Lakemont Family Medicine will be relocated to the new building, as well.
A total of 60,000 square feet and three floor levels will make up the new office space, with all construction expected to be finished by January 2014.
