Presbyterian Healthcare is moving forward with a long-planned $90 million hospital in Mint Hill. But it will initially be on a much smaller scale than originally envisioned.
The Charlotte-based health-care system now says it will build the project in three phases, starting with a 16-bay satellite emergency department and imaging services.
Construction will start later this year, with the first-phase facility slated to open in 2013.
But other pieces of the proposed 50-bed hospital will be added gradually — with Presbyterian facing a state-imposed deadline of 2018 to expand the operation to a full-service hospital.
