The Carolinas HealthCare System 2011 Annual Report is dedicated to the memory of the late Suzanne Hill Freeman, who served as president of Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) from 2000 to 2012. Her extraordinary career with CHS began in 1975, when she began work
as a staff nurse at Charlotte Memorial Hospital (the predecessor to CMC), and continued for 37 years until illness forced her resignation.
One constant throughout this period was her outstanding leadership ability, coupled with a sincere
manner that made her a role model for generations of nurses, physicians and others. To recognize Suzanne’s
passion for developing and mentoring the healthcare leaders of tomorrow, CHS has established a scholarship
in her name, the Suzanne Hill Freeman N.C. Medical Society Leadership Scholarship, c/o Carolinas HealthCare
Foundation, P.O. Box 32861, Charlotte NC 28232.
