Why Do Business Leaders Support North Carolina's Community Hospitals?

Business leaders across the state agree that hospitals and health systems play an important role in improving the health of their citizens and strengthening the economy of their communities by 

  • Keeping their workforce healthy
  • Serving as an attraction for new and relocating businesses
  • Serving as one of the largest employers in the community
  • Providing 1.2 jobs outside of the hospital for every job within the hospital system 
  • Providing billions of dollars annually in uncompensated care to our most vulnerable citizens 
  • Being prepared to care for their employees, families and neighbors all day, every day
