You are going to have a very difficult time recruiting to Greenville the type of high-powered, research-oriented physicians/researchers necessary without a serious investment in facilities, which they seem to have recognized. Interesting how this doesn't (at first glance at least) go along with the stated goal of the Brody SOM: to provide more primary care physicians to eastern NC. I wonder if that apparent contradiction will be resolved (if at all).

Hopefully they mean by mirroring the design is that it will be the same unified design but that it will still be a unique building. I feel like the ECHI was a little too simple in the design unlike say, the new Childrens Hospital. I mean, this should look like a world class facility so I just hope they don't go cheap with the design. But of course either way its great for Vidant and Greenville so that's the most important part.
Maybe I didn't choose the best words, but let me give a little history about ECHI and medicine in general. For the most part (since ever), there are two types of doctors: physicians and surgeons. They each have their own way to fix and treat. ECHI was the first? (I think so) to put both under one roof and working together. So they are not competing when trying to deal with this organ system (cardiovascular).

So I believe the Cancer tower will have this same feel. So it isn't as much of the outside, but the inner workings.

In the paperwork it basically talks about how we catch cancer further along in its disease-state (in eastern NC). So maybe if we had more PCP, we could cancer screen earlier and faster.

This is only Vidant's part. I don't know if ECU is going to "match" like they did with ECHI. If they are actually going to replicate ECHI, then I would expect an ECU Cancer Institute.

Chipotle is pretty good, but I slightly prefer Qdoba. The only burrito place I didn't care for was Salsarita's. Their queso dip was flavorless, as well as the rest of the food. Also, it was more expensive than most burrito places.

PF Changs- The market doesn't seem typical, but the deal seems to be done; just a matter of time. Deal is listed on Tradecor LLC's website.
