Outer Banks Health is pleased to announce plans to expand the building that houses the Manteo Family Medicine on Roanoke Island. At their most recent meeting held February 24, the Outer Banks Health Board of Directors approved $5M in support of the project. Outer Banks Health recently closed on the purchase of the property formerly owned by Dr. Walter and Barbara Holton of Manteo. A site plan that includes improvements to the current structure and a 2600 square foot addition will soon go through the Dare County planning process in preparation for construction. Once completed, the 6300 square foot building will have capacity to grow along with the future needs of the community.
“The project at Manteo Family Medicine represents our commitment to provide the highest quality healthcare services. Improvements are also on-going at the hospital where we are installing a new MRI, Nuclear Medicine Camera, and Digital X-ray as well as expanding our Laboratory and Outpatient Cardiology Diagnostic areas. In addition, construction of the Cowell Cancer Center continues. We appreciate the support of our community, our Board of Directors, Development Council and Donors. This strong and loyal support combined with the expertise of our leaders and team members is what enables us to continue to grow and meet the needs of the community,” stated Ronnie Sloan, president of Outer Banks Health.
