Applause here, please! Michael Jordan demonstrated that he does not need to return to the court to remain a crack, as he donated 10 million dollars to promote the construction of 2 hospitals in North Carolina.
The former basketball player once again partnered with Novant Health, a company that has medical clinics in 4 states in the United States. In fact, there are already hospitals in the city of Charlotte named after Jordan.
This contribution will be essential for residents of rural communities, or at least close to the countryside, to have a functional health system.
“I am very proud to once again partner with Novant Health to expand the Family Clinic model. Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live or whether they have insurance or not, “said Michael Jordan in a statement.
Not being the Chicago Bulls legend’s first financial contribution, his donations totaled $ 17 million. Additionally, the new hospitals will be located in Wilmington and are scheduled to open in 2022.
In just over two years, the first hospitals named after Michael Jordan have treated more than 4,500 patients and became centers for the application of vaccines against COVID-19. Until today, almost a thousand doses have been administered.
The historic NBA player was born in New York, but grew up in Wilmington and for many years, before attending the University of North Carolina. This is why the county means a lot to her life.
“We came to this planet with the mission of making a difference. I am very proud of the relationship we have created. When you have great teammates, you can accept any challenge, and you feel like you could win a game, “added Jordan.
