"We're still evaluating what other services we could provide there as well," hospital spokesman Julian March said Monday.
The timing of the construction of a new emergency department has not yet been determined, but now that the land is purchased, planning for the facility can continue, March said.
NHRMC already provides some services in a facility at Autumn Hall that it leases from a Trask family entity.
"Health and wellness is a very important part of any mixed-use community, and we think New Hanover Regional Medical Center does a great job providing the care piece and the business piece as well," said Raiford Trask III of Trask Land Co., who represented the Trask family in the transaction, along with Vin Wells of Wilmington-based commercial real estate firm Cape Fear Commercial.
Trask added, "They're also focusing on the education aspect of health and wellness, which we think will be a great benefit to Autumn Hall and our community as a whole."
Bill Maus, partner in Wilmington-based Maus, Warwick, Matthews & Co., represented NHRMC in the deal.
"The land NHRMC recently purchased is located within one of the most attractive demographic areas in Southeastern North Carolina," Maus said. "They should never regret the decision."
