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.
