Michael Jordan is giving back to his home state, donating $10 million to help open two Novant Health clinics here in North Carolina. The clinics will be opened in New Hanover County, near MJ’s hometown of Wilmington.  They’re expected to open early next year and this is not the first time Michael has given back to the North Carolina community.

In 2017, Jordan committed $7 million to Novant Health to open two clinics in Charlotte and Novant Health said Jordan’s latest donation will help “bring this same integrated care model to more rural and rural-adjacent communities in his hometown.”

Jordan said Wilmington holds “a special place in my heart” and that “everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance.” You can see more on this story here.
