Michael Jordan Donates $10 Million To Open Health Clinics In North Carolina

Michael Jordan, the billionaire basketball star, has donated $10 million to open two rural health clinics near his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, as the COVID-19 pandemic has underlined the dangers of unequal access to healthcare.


“The clinics, which will open in early 2022, will serve  “rural and rural-adjacent communities” as well as those with little or no health insurance,” the health system said in a statement. It will offer primary care as well as “behavioral health and social support services.”


Jordan’s donation will allow Novant Health System to open two health clinics on the state’s southeastern coast in Hanover County.
