Their role in eastern North Carolina encompasses much more than health care. Their mission — to enhance the quality of life for the communities and people we serve, touch and support — drives them to work beyond the walls of their facilities. They work with our communities to provide health education, help those in need access medical care and support nonprofit agencies in their community service, among other projects.
During the 2011 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, 2011, University Health Systems of Eastern Carolina contributed more than $128 million in community benefit activities and services. This includes charity and other uncompensated care. It also includes the many community-based programs and services that they provide, beyond the medical care that you expect from them. More than 267,000 individuals throughout eastern North Carolina have taken part in these outreach programs over the past year.
The main focus of this project was to photograph participants who were impacted by Vidant’s community benefits program. From skin cancer screenings to the school nurse program there were just a small collection of the stories of people who have been touched by their programs and outreach services.
