Basketball legend Michael Jordan has donated $10 million to help open two new medical clinics in New Hanover County.
Jordan’s donation to Novant Health will improve access to affordable healthcare in his hometown of Wilmington, according to a Novant Health press release.
The two new clinics are slated to open in early 2022. The release did not state where the clinics will be located.
Jordan previously partnered with Novant Health to open two Michael Jordan Family Clinics in Charlotte. Those clinicsoffered comprehensive primary care, including behavioral health and social support services, to the area’s most vulnerable communities, according to the release.
Jordan’s gift will help Novant Health bring this same care model to more rural and rural-adjacent communities in Wilmington, offering services to residents who are uninsured or underinsured, the release stated.
Jordan grew up in Wilmington and attended Emsley A. Laney High School.
