2021 Community Benefit Report
From the CEO
A community is defined as a fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. The dedication and work of our hospital is found throughout our deep relationship with our community. We value this unique relationship and the resulting improved overall health status of our residents.
Many diverse efforts are how we provide tangible and defined community benefits each year. Whether it is in pandemic education, vaccination and testing, recruiting health providers, loaning members of our leadership team to serve on local boards, acting as a training site for area health students, or in a myriad of other collaborative health improvement initiatives, our work provided $1.45 million dollars in direct community benefit in 2021.
While hospitals continued to experience challenges with an evolving COVID-19 pandemic this year, UNC Lenoir Health Care adapted with countless strategies. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your ongoing enthusiasm and support for UNC Lenoir Health Care.
This report provides a snapshot provided by UNC Lenoir Health Care to help improve the health and well-being of our community. We are proud to have collaborated with many local partners to promote health and wellness in our community, as we provided quality care to all in need, each and every day of the year. It is an honor to serve on your behalf.
Robert A. Enders, Jr.
President and CEO
