The FirstHealth Vision
For more than a century, FirstHealth of the Carolinas has offered a range of life-affirming services to residents of North Carolina’s Sandhills region, and with a growing network spanning 15 counties, it’s emerged in recent years as one of the state’s premier healthcare providers.
To bridge regional gaps in cancer treatment as part of its $30 million “Building the Dream” campaign, the organization sought to establish one centralized facility that would eliminate the need for arduous, long-distance travel, connecting patients with the highest caliber of care, closer to home.
Following a rigorous evaluation of several national healthcare architectural firms, CPL was chosen to design a groundbreaking 120,000 sq. ft. addition to the system’s flagship Moore Regional Hospital campus in Pinehurst, NC.
The work would be executed through an integrated project delivery (IPD) method―a collaborative approach that unites all parties, including the architect, engineers, owner and contractor, right at the project’s inception. This strategy harnesses open communication to facilitate swift problem-solving, superior design quality and faster project delivery.
