Our Vision for the Future

NHRMC has embraced a mission of leading our community to outstanding health and is working toward a vision to serve as a model for health and wellness – with all residents having convenient access to affordable care that’s equitable and customized to their unique needs and preferences.

NHRMC and New Hanover County leaders are united in pursuit of this mission and vision, believing that our community deserves the highest quality care, access to a comprehensive array of services, the latest technology and the support they need to stay healthy.

Our Priorities

In evaluating the right ownership structure, we’ll consider partners who are best able to advance our key priorities:

  • Improving access to care and wellness through more consumer-centric options.
  • Advancing the value of the care we provide through higher quality and lower costs, effectively managing the health of our region to not only treat the sick but keep them well.
  • Achieving health equity through community partnerships and activities that remove barriers to care, enabling our residents to achieve their own optimal health.
  • Supporting NHRMC’s staff and culture that has made the system one of the top places to work in the country.
  • Partnering with providers to make southeastern North Carolina an excellent place to practice medicine, so we can continue to attract talented, compassionate providers to care for our growing population.
  • Driving quality care throughout the continuum and helping facilitate transitions with other providers to deliver more seamless and coordinated care models.
  • Growing the level and scope of care already in place for all, regardless of ability to pay.
  • Investing to ensure the long-term financial security and future of the health system.

As a strong healthcare system nationally recognized for quality and as a great place to work, NHRMC is in a position to choose the best ownership structure, whether it’s with New Hanover County or a larger system that aligns with our goals and has the resources to advance them.
