Responding to the Community's Needs
High Point Regional had a new building, yet the hospital continued to grow and change in response to health care’s constantly changing landscape. More outpatient services were needed; yet those patients who were hospitalized needed more sophisticated care, so High Point Regional added programs such as: High Point Surgery Center, the MRI Center, the Pain Management Center, the Cancer Registry, the Sleep Disorders Center, High Point Behavioral Health, the Restorative Care Unit and reconfigured inpatient units to provide more intensive and intermediate care.
The Hospital launched an open-heart surgery program in 1991, a monumental step forward in the quest for true "regional" health care. Meanwhile, the hospital shaped its Centers of Excellence in cancer care, emergency medicine, heart care, neuroscience, orthopaedics and women’s health, as well.
Not even 10 years after High Point Regional opened its new facility, administrative and board leaders realized that the hospital may once again need more room, so research and planning began.
