The Outer Banks Hospital (The OBH) broke ground Monday, January 29th on construction of a state-of-the-art Radiation Therapy Center in Nags Head. The building is phase one of a plan to develop a single location for comprehensive cancer care in the Outer Banks community.  
 
Plunging temperatures and misting rain were unable to dampen the crowd’s enthusiasm during the groundbreaking ceremony. Attended by leadership and staff from The OBH and its partners Vidant Health and Chesapeake Regional Healthcare, as well as from the Town of Nags Head, and Dare County, a common theme emerged during opening remarks that underscored the value of keeping high-quality healthcare local. Chairman of the Dare County Commissioners, Bob Woodard, remarked, “The Outer Banks Hospital is certainly stepping up to the plate and providing the needed services to our community. I can’t thank you enough for that.”
