NBA all star #MichaelJordan has recently stepped in to help ease the pain of patients in search of affordable health care with the establishment of an all new clinic!
According to #EssenceMagazine ; Jordan has officially established two medical clinics in Charlotte, #NorthCarolina. Sources have confirmed that the facilities have been designed to provide affordable healthcare solely to patients either underinsured or uninsured.
It has been indicated that Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic was strategically placed in a neighborhood where there are little to no health care facilities.
“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. I believe that your ZIP code or neighborhood should not determine the quality of your health care — or whether or not you can even get care at all,” states Jordan during the clinic’s grand opening on Thursday.
Sources have stated that each facility ranges a total of 6,800 square feet, 12 exam rooms, an official X-ray room and a physical therapy area. They’ll provide primary and preventative care as well as behavioral services.
