Overview

In July 2010, Atrium Health Lincoln opened a brand new 101-bed hospital and medical office building at 433 McAlister Road. From the beginning, the beautiful contemporary facility was designed, planned and constructed with the community in mind. Many of the hospital’s unique features and programs support this vision including: 

A link to local history with the building’s exterior, which contains 300,000 reclaimed bricks from a portion of the Belding-Hausman Mill 

A 1.2-mile public walking trail that encircles the campus, winding past ponds and through natural wooded areas left intact on the land 

A collaboration by three artists called “A Sense of Place” that depicts the evolution of the original farmland on which the hospital is situated into a place of healing
