UNC Health Care acquires office space near 15-501/I-40 intersection

Last week, UNC Health Care completed a transaction to purchase 47.4 acres of land from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC). The property is on Hwy. 15-501 near the I-40 intersection and is located across the street from the BCBSNC headquarters building in Chapel Hill. This property includes seven office buildings containing more than 150,000 square feet of space.

With the increasing congestion of hospital and clinic services along the Manning Drive corridor, this property provides new possibilities for serving our patients. The initial use of the new property will focus on non-clinical services, which will in turn free up much needed space at UNC Hospitals for clinical care.

A group under the leadership of Chris Ellington, UNC Hospitals Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, will assess the best administrative services to move to the new location, with the goal of maximizing patient-friendly clinical space at UNC Hospitals and other UNC Health Care locations.
