No Hospital Sale
The undersigned petitions the New Hanover County Board of Commissioners to immediately cease any actions to consider the sale of New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Furthermore, I request that the Board of Commissioners engage a verifiably independent source to conduct a management and performance audit of the current hospital administration, including recommendations on how the hospital can finance future expansion needs.
I am opposed to losing our long-term relationship with UNC Health.
Our hospital is a valuable community asset owned by the people of New Hanover County. Selling this asset to outside interests would endanger the future quality of healthcare in southeastern North Carolina.
This hospital was established by a vote of the people. If the County Commissioners decide to sell the hospital, then approval must be granted through a public referendum vote.
