Emergency Room Services Ending at Mountain View Regional Hospital

Beginning this Sunday, January 5th, 2020, Ballad Health’s Mountain View Regional Hospital located in Norton, Virginia will no longer be offering Emergency Room services. According to a Press Release from Ballad, those services will now be offered at Norton Community Hospital, according to a release given last October. Ballad has received permission from the Commonwealth of Virginia to move both inpatient and critical care services from Mountain View Regional Hospital to Lonesome Pine Hospital and combine the medical and surgical units of both hospitals’ units.
Additionally, Mountain View Regional Hospital will receive Norton Community Hospital’s inpatient rehab unit, if approved, in a dedicated and upgraded space, thereby expanding the current capacity limit for the unit from eleven beds to fifteen beds. If approved, the rehab unit at Mountain View Regional Hospital would begin renovations with the future move possible some time in 2021.
