Through recent service and facility expansions your local hospital has evolved from a stand alone community hospital into an integrated healthcare system. As a result of this growth we have changed our name to Beaufort Regional Health System.
Your healthcare system includes an acute care hospital, multiple physician practices, and other healthcare delivery organizations who work together to provide a broad range of inpatient and outpatient services in our community and region. Our primary mission is to provide safe, high-quality, cost-effective, personalized primary and secondary healthcare consistent with patient needs in our service area. We are a 501 (c)3 public, non-profit corporation and welcome corporate, organizational and individual support to further our mission.
Without leaving the local area, your health system provides access to advanced treatments and technology in the areas of cancer care, orthopedics, gastroenterology, and radiology. We offer a full array of state-of-the-art diagnostic testing. We offer ERCP and Video Capsule Endoscopy to assist in the evaluation and management of GI disorders. Our radiology services include the latest technology in CT scanning as well as nuclear medicine cameras. In addition, through a partnership with Pitt County Memorial Hospital we also offer a full-range of diagnostic MRI services.
Quality cancer care is found right here at home at the Marion L. Shepard Cancer Center, whose mission is to offer the highest quality of care for patients with cancer and blood disorders. Our Cancer Center and highly regarded medical oncologists provide quality cancer diagnosis and treatment as well as an array of complementary therapies that help patients and caregivers better deal with the struggles of having cancer. Also located within the Cancer Center is an IMRT-capable linear accelerator that provides radiation treatment. Professional radiation oncology services are provided through a partnership with the ECU Brody School of Medicine.
To enhance your medical care and to meet the changing needs of the region, Beaufort Regional Health System constantly seeks ways to expand and improve our spectrum of services. We have recently opened a 38,612 square foot expansion project that provides a new and expanded surgical department and recovery area as well as a modernized visitors lobby and admissions area. This comes after the completion of several other renovation and expansion projects including the opening of Lifestyles Medical Fitness Center as well as the modernization and expansion of our labor and delivery department and our radiology department.
Your health system recognizes the need to partner more closely with local physician practices to ensure that a broad range of healthcare services remain an integral part of the local healthcare delivery system. As a result your health care system includes physician practices in the areas of family medicine, internal medicine, orthopedics, mental health, gastroenterology, obstetrics and gynecology, urology and surgical services. In an effort to improve the overall health of our community, your health system offers several cancer screenings as well as a number of support groups and educational programs through our community outreach program – Health Matters. Preventive care can be found at our LifeStyles Medical Fitness Center, which offers physical fitness, health education and wellness programs.
Beaufort Regional Health System is committed to providing for the healthcare needs of the citizens in our region. We will continue to plan for the future of the healthcare needs of our region through strategic planning and helping to prepare our future healthcare workforce.
