Embracing the Past, Looking to the Future

From its beginnings at the City Hospital in 1908 to the large state-of-the-art hospital that stands today, CaroMont Regional Medical Center has been providing healthcare to the community for more than 100 years. In 1946, the hospital was organized as a memorial to all local soldiers who died in World War II. The flagship hospital, formerly CaroMont Regional Medical Center, changed its name to CaroMont Regional Medical Center to better reflect its latest direction and focus on improving and enhancing the health and quality of life in the community.

CaroMont Regional Medical Center, a 435-bed not-for-profit hospital, serves the greater Gaston community. Of the 110 independent hospitals in North Carolina, CaroMont Regional is one of about 17 that remain independent enabling us to deliver care more nimbly and without ownership or oversight from a larger system. As such, we have been able to work very closely with our veteran community in preserving our World War II roots while continually striving to advance our health system with innovative medicine and strategic health and wellness initiatives.

Upon arrival on the campus of CaroMont Regional visitors access the hospital by way of Veterans’ Drive and CaroMont Regional Medical Center Drive. Edged with pristine landscaping and trees, the hospital campus is situated on 89 acres of land. The grassy knolls and shaded areas on the front lawn are an ideal setting for staff picnics and to celebrate special occasions like National Hospital Week and veteran events. Easily accessible sidewalks and nature trails encourage outdoor lunches and walking breaks during the day for employees. Connecting to a leading edge fitness center, the primary sidewalk serves as the official path for the annual Heart Walk event and fundraiser.

The main hospital lobby houses the war memorial garden dedicated to the legacy and sacrifice of the brave soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors, as well as symbolizing the strong history and foundation of which the hospital came to be.

To honor veterans and Memorial Day, CaroMont Regional will soon announce to the community a veteran monument and its permanent location on campus. The monument will be erected in the Fall nearest the West Expansion, which contains our Birthplace, a world-class birthing center whose philosophy is family-centered care and has attracted visitors from all over the country. The purposeful juxtaposition provided by the Birthplace symbolizes the hospital’s WWII origin and reference to the ebb and flow of life and the importance of new beginnings.
