History of Lake Norman
Regional Medical Center
Originally known as Lowrance
Hospital, Lake Norman Regional Medical Center
built a foundation for community care in 1926.
S.A. Lowrance donated land, and citizens of Mooresville
purchased stock in it for $25 a share. The organization
soon became a non-profit corporation, opened a
new four-story hospital in 1930, and expanded
twice more in the 1950s and 1970s.
1986, Health Management Associates, Inc. purchased the hospital and the
name was changed to better reflect the hospital's commitment to the
entire Lake Norman region. A few years later, a new $41 million
replacement hospital and medical campus was built on 30 acres just off
I-77 at Exit 33. In 2007, Lake Norman Regional earned Magnet
recognition status for excellence in nursing and patient care by the
American Nurses Credentialing Center.
