FirstHealth Hoke Community Hospital
FirstHealth continues to pursue plans for a hospital
in Hoke County and filed a certificate of need application
to the State of North Carolina on June 15, 2012, for
28 additional hospital beds. This application was approved
in November 2012.
Cape Fear Valley has appealed the State’s Certificate
of Need approval for the additional hospital beds.
However we will not waver in our commitment to Hoke
County and are excited to be opening Hoke County’s
first hospital this year.
FirstHealth filed an application requesting that the State award FirstHealth the 28 beds available in the service area to increase the size of FirstHealth’s planned eight-bed hospital in Hoke to 36 beds.
The hospital will feature:
• Emergency Department with beds providing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospitalists for inpatient care
- FirstHealth Moore Regional Emergency Department physicians for Emergency Department care
• Operating room
• Imaging services, including X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan, mammography and MRI
• Diagnostic cardiology
• Critical care transport
• Lab services
• Medical office building space for specialists and other interested physicians
FirstHealth proposes to operate the facility with an open medical staff, which means that area physicians may apply for privileges at the new hospital regardless of their current affiliation with any other area hospital. Clinics and specialists from Moore County have expressed a willingness to extend services to the Hoke facility. The emergency department will be staffed by the same Sandhills Emergency Physicians who staff Moore Regional Hospital, and inpatient coverage will be managed by
FirstHealth’s Hospitalist Service and other physicians credentialed to admit to the Hoke hospital.
FirstHealth’s Hoke hospital complex will provide Hoke County residents with convenient access to high-quality services by board certified physicians and FirstHealth-trained staff.
The facility will be conveniently located on the Highway 401 corridor just northeast of Raeford.
