WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - At a time when surging COVID-19 hospitalizations are putting great strain on health care systems across the country, Novant Health today announced the implementation of a new digital health program designed to help relieve the pressure on acute care facilities, prevent or earlier detect the need for readmission, and provide better continuity of care for patients. Novant Health’s COVID Care at Home will identify patients undergoing treatment for COVID-19 who can safely transition to care at home and discharge those patients with on-demand virtual care follow-up appointments and in-home support. New Hanover Regional Medical Center, now part of Novant Health, launched a similar program in April 2020 and has served more than 2,400 patients.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Novant Health has been named a 2021 recipient of six Diversity Impact Awards by the Association of ERGs & Councils.

Team members are considered compliant if they have received the following: the single dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine, a first dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine — or if they applied for, and were granted, a medical or religious exemption. Team members who have started a two-dose vaccine series will now have until October 15 to get their second dose and remain in compliance.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center Foundation was awarded a $410,000 grant from The Duke Endowment to implement a well-being and resiliency program focused on front-line nurses who experience high rates of professional burnout. The program builds upon a similar program Novant Health launched in 2013 to address burnout among physicians. More than 800 Novant Health physicians have participated, and the program has hosted over 1,000 physicians from 39 states. For the nursing program, The Duke Endowment grant funding will support six cohorts of 20 nurses each. Novant Health will fund three additional cohorts. Over the three-year grant period, the program will serve 180 front-line nurses. Program leadership will provide guidelines for participation and begin recruiting cohorts later this year.
