Healthcare Decisions

Choices and Champions

At Novant Health, we’re committed to transforming care leading to end of life. This means making sure that patients’ wishes are known and honored.

Life is filled with choices. Your healthcare experience is no exception.


None of us knows what the future holds or what possible medical decisions we may have to make. The most important thing you can do now is choose who you trust to speak for you if you are ever unable to make your own medical decisions.

That’s where Choices and Champions® comes in. This free service provided by Novant Health is designed to help you name your healthcare champion and think about other medical choices you may face in the future. Our planning tools will help you think about your wishes and explain them to your champion so that he or she can speak for you. Our navigators are also available to help you fill out the necessary paperwork to make your decisions legally binding.


Why act now?

Deciding now is the best way to make sure your wishes are honored. It can be easy to put off making these decisions because we don't like to think about them, or we assume we can wait until we’re older. The fact is that a sudden injury or illness can happen to any of us at anytime. By talking about your wishes with those you love, you will help them know how to speak for you if you are ever unable to make your own medical decisions.

Choices and Champions® helps you understand your options and make those decisions now – so that your wishes are clear to your doctors and, most importantly, your family. By putting your wishes in writing and choosing a champion to speak for you if you cannot, you can be sure your values are respected and your choices honored. That’s why it’s important to take time now to choose your champions and talk with them about the things that are most important to you.
