Temporary restraining order granted to stop demolition of former Vidant Pungo Hospital

BELHAVEN, N.C. (WNCT) – A temporary restraining order is now in effect that will stop the demolition of what was once the Vidant Pungo Hospital.

It closed in 2014.

Belhaven Mayor Adam O’Neal said Judge Cy Grant granted the temporary restraining order on Monday. It’s in effect for the next ten days unless it’s extended.

Just last week, the managers of Pantego Creek, LLC rejected an offer from the Town of Belhaven to purchase the hospital. The property the facility sits on is said to be worth more money than the hospital itself. Asbestos removal is currently underway at the site.
