Novant Health has completed Novant Health Claudia W. and John M. Belk Heart & Vascular Institute and the Agnes B. and Edward I. Weisiger Cancer Institute, a 260,000-square-foot cardiovascular and cancer outpatient clinic in Charlotte, N.C. The facility provides outpatient cardiac and cancer treatments, treatment services and support programs, all in one location. McCulloch England Associates served as architect and Vannoy Construction was the general contractor for the $165.9 million project.

Located at 125 Queens Road, the seven-story property features an eight-story parking deck for patients and visitors. The building is linked to the Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center through an enclosed over-street walkway connector. Amenities include the Mecklenburg Radiology Resource Center as well as a boutique, café with indoor and outdoor seating, interfaith chapel and specialty pharmacy.

The facility is less than 2 miles from downtown Charlotte, in a high-density area of health-care providers, which also includes Atrium Health and OrthoCarolina. The property is also less than 2 miles from Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center campus, where a 150,000-square-foot medical facility broke ground at the end of September.
