Carolinas HealthCare System is one of the leading healthcare organizations in the Southeast and one of the largest public, not-for-profit systems in the nation.
CHS operates more than 30 affiliated hospitals, directly employs more than 1,700 physicians, and serves patients at more than 600 care locations including physician practices, freestanding emergency departments, outpatient surgery centers, pharmacies, laboratories, imaging centers and other facilities. We also operate a large number of nursing homes and other enterprises that provide home care, medical equipment and hospice services.
Altogether, CHS operations comprise more than 6,300 licensed beds and employ more than 48,000 people, with combined annual net revenues in excess of $6.5 billion.
A significant Carolinas HealthCare milestone occurred in 2010 when Levine Cancer Institute was formed as a result of a $20 million leadership gift from the Leon Levine Foundation. Institute funding is being used to add new research capabilities and enhance community-based care at our hospitals throughout the Carolinas. In addition, Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, which is one of only five Academic Medical Center Teaching Hospitals in North Carolina, was designated as the Charlotte Campus of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine.
One characteristic common to all of CHS is a shared mission that includes commitment to public service and outreach to all segments of the population. Carolinas HealthCare System, with its extraordinary staff and broad variety of high quality services and facilities, provides a medical home available to everyone throughout their lifetime.
