Over a year after Michael Jordan opened a medical clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina, he has opened a second location according to Novant Health.
The first Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic had opened its doors in West Charlotte last year as a healthcare clinic to serve low-income communities in the city.
A second location has opened its doors to individuals in the North End community. The clinic will provide vital access to primary and preventative care, including individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. This new clinic, as well as the first one opened last year, was made possible by a $7 million grant by NBA Hall of Famer and Charlotte Hornets owner Jordan.
“We are thrilled the North End community of Charlotte will have access to the same comprehensive care that is transforming lives at the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic in west Charlotte,” said Carl Armato, CEO and president of Novant Health, in a written statement.
“The impact of the first clinic has been measurable and if COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is the importance of having accessible, safe, and quality care in communities that need it most. Michael Jordan’s commitment to improving the health of our communities, and society, is deep-rooted. We’re so grateful to be his partner in bringing care and resources to those who would otherwise be without.”
“When we came together to mark the first clinic’s opening last fall, no one could have predicted we would be facing a global pandemic just five months later,” said Jordan. “I’m so proud of the positive impact our clinic has had on the community so far, especially during COVID-19. Our second clinic will provide critical services to improve the health and lives of more Charlotteans, which is so important to me and to Novant Health.”
In our opinion, there is no better team. Thank you, Michael, for your partnership in bringing care to those who need it. Find out more about our Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinics here: https://t.co/97jXa3p8Hu pic.twitter.com/Ma4pAT9FmL
