Our free of charge or low-cost programs are designed
to meet the identified health needs in our community. To identify these pressing needs, we work
with various community partners to conduct community health needs assessments.
This partnership enables us to systematically identify significant needs that
are not adequately met due to financial, geographic or cultural barriers. We
invite you to view your facility’s Community Health Needs
Assessment and its resulting implementation plan.
With remarkable technology, personal connections and care that’s easier to access and understand, Novant Health is with you every step of the way on your journey to health and wellness.
