Michael Jordan Donates $10 million to Open Medical Clinics for Low-income Families
NBA Legend and American businessman Michael Jordan, has donated $10 million to open two new medical clinics in New Hanover County, North Carolina, specifically to help people in need.
Scheduled to open in early 2022, the two health clinics in partnership with non-profit health care group, 'Novant', will offer "much-needed services to those who are uninsured or underinsured."
Novant says Jordan's donation will bring "comprehensive primary care, behavioural health and social support services, to the area’s most vulnerable communities."
Jordan had previously donated $7 million to open 2 centres in 2017 and says he's extremely proud to "bring better access to critical medical services in my hometown."
"Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance. Wilmington holds a special place in my heart and it’s truly gratifying to be able to give back to the community that supported me throughout my life."
Novant says the 2 clinics MJ opened in 2017 have already seen more than 4,500 patients, in addition to providing critical COVID-19 response.
