SALISBURY, N.C. – Novant Health Foundation Rowan Medical Center is selling bricks from the building that served as home and classroom for Rowan Memorial Hospital from 1944 to 1972.
In the next several weeks, the building at Confederate Avenue and Henderson Street will be torn down and bricks saved. All proceeds will benefit Rowan Medical Center’s Employee Emergency Fund.
Novant Health Foundation Rowan Medical Center is preselling bricks from the building to commemorate the rich medical and nursing history in the Rowan community. The cost to purchase a brick with a brass plate is $25.
Bricks must be purchased through pre-sale, as there will not be extra bricks available. A hospital press release said, “This would serve as a terrific memento if you or a family member was a student at Rowan Memorial Hospital.”
If you would like to purchase a brick through pre-sale, contact Novant Health Foundation Rowan Medical Center at 704-210-6880.
