NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – The New Hanover County and New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) Partnership Advisory Group will hold its last meeting on Tuesday, September 29 at 5:30 p.m.
The meeting will be held at UNCW’s Burney Center, located at Price Drive on the UNCW Campus. Free parking will be available at Lot M near the Burney Center. Social distancing guidelines will be observed and attendees will be required to wear face coverings.
The meeting will be open to the public and can also be watched virtually using this public zoom link.
This Advisory Group meeting will be held after the Board of Commissioners’ September 28th Public Hearing takes place, and will be an opportunity for the group to discuss feedback and the final agreement between New Hanover County, NHRMC and Novant Health. The agreement can be viewed here, along with its four-page summary here.
The Advisory Group will also vote and make a final recommendation at this meeting regarding the agreement that will then go to the NHRMC Board of Trustees and New Hanover County Board of Commissioners. This is the Advisory Group’s last deliverable, based on their charter.
The Partnership Advisory Group is a 21-member, citizen-led advisory group that was formed in October 2019 to evaluate whether NHRMC should partner with another organization, restructure, and/or remain county owned. The public can view details about their year-long exploration and research process, presentations from each of the group’s meetings, and more at NHRMCfuture.org.
