WilmingtonBiz Talk: Two Years After NHRMC's Sale To Novant

By Staff Reports, posted Feb 1, 2023

Wednesday marked two years since the sale of the county-owned New Hanover Regional Medical Center to Novant Health.
 
On the Business Journal’s BizTalk interview, two local officials talked about how it’s gone and what’s next for the health system, including updates on upcoming construction projects such as the planned Scotts Hill hospital in northern New Hanover County.
 
Shelbourn Stevens, president of Novant Health’s coastal region and Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center, and John Gizdic, executive vice president and chief business development officer for Novant, also discussed updates to staffing challenges in the health care industry.
 
They answered questions about future health equity efforts in light of the recent layoff of Philip Brown, who was Novant Health's chief community impact officer but based in Wilmington. Brown, who was previously NHRMC’s chief executive physician before the sale, was among 50 people laid off in Novant Health’s systemwide employee base of 37,000.
