Less than a year after the first Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinic opened in west Charlotte, Novant and Jordan have just announced their second location. The new North End facility will provide vital access to primary and preventive care to individuals who are uninsured or underinsured.
The new North End location will be a 6,800 square foot clinic equipped with 12 patient exam rooms, an X-ray room and space for physical therapy. It will also implement the same integrated services model as the Freedom Drive clinic in west Charlotte, including a full-time licensed clinical social worker on-site to help address those social determinants of health.
Together these two medical clinics, which were made possible by a $7 million donation from Michael Jordan, offer comprehensive primary care, including behavioral health and social support services. The aim is to more directly address health equity gaps, which have further been exacerbated by COVID-19.
“We will continue to do good things within the Charlotte community. It gives my family great pride to know that we are making a difference in Charlotte,” said Jordan in a zoom call.
