Letter in Support of Partnership from NHRMC Foundation Board of Directors

As members of the New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) Foundation Board of Directors, we support the recommendation to explore a partnership with Novant Health, UNC Health, and UNC School of Medicine. We believe this proposed partnership affords us the opportunity to take the next steps toward Leading Our Community to Outstanding Health.

We joined the Foundation Board of Directors because we understand the importance of having resources to provide increasingly better care. We know what a difference it can make to provide for new services, technology, and advanced training for staff and providers. We see and hear how our fundraising efforts have helped people in our community and we know we had a part in making those lives better, because we chose to act.

Today, our community has an opportunity to do even more good, on a grander scale, than we ever thought possible.

We believe the partnership proposed by Novant Health, UNC Health and UNC School of Medicine would bring tremendous benefit to those served by NHRMC and the broader region.

A partnership provides us with opportunities to expand access to high quality care, lower costs, eliminate disparities, and grow our incredible team of employees and providers. By choosing to support the proposed partnership, our community can be a destination for medical care for generations to come.

We encourage the New Hanover County Commissioners and all who live in our community to support moving forward with the proposed partnership and all it can do to transform this region for the better.
