Basketball great Michael Jordan has made a $10m donation for the construction of two medical clinics for communities in his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina. The clinics, which will be based in uninsured and underinsured areas, are slated to open in early 2022.
“I am very proud to once again partner with Novant Health to expand the Family Clinic model to bring better access to critical medical services in my hometown,” Jordan said in a statement. “Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance. Wilmington holds a special place in my heart and it’s truly gratifying to be able to give back to the community that supported me throughout my life.”
