Basketball great Michael Jordan continues to give back to community as he unveiled the first of two medical clinics he has funded in a North Carolina city. Per a report by CNN, the facility offers care to Charlotte residents, including underinsured and uninsured patients.
Jordan, who played 15 seasons in the NBA, winning six championships with the Chicago Bulls, delivered an emotional speech during a recent opening of the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic.
“As you can see, it’s a very emotional thing for me to be able to give back to a community that’s supported me over the years,” Jordan, Charlotte Hornets owner, said.
It was in 2017 when Jordan committed $7 million to Novant Health to open two clinics in Charlotte.
The clinic will offer typical primary and preventative care, but will also provide patients with behavioral health and social support services, the report said.
The 6,800-square-foot facility is equipped with 12 exam rooms, an X-ray room and a physical therapy space. In addition, a full-time social worker is on staff to provide social support services to patients. (CC)
