About Charlotte

Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina and the second largest city in the Southeastern United States. A major US financial center, the city is headquarters to Bank of America and Wells Fargo’s East Coast operations.

In addition to a vibrant arts and culture scene, Charlotte is also home to the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the US National Whitewater Center.

Conveniently located in the heart of Charlotte, CMC-Mercy is a short 20-minute drive from Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, and is just minutes away from a broad range of dining options (fast food and affordable spots to Zagat-rated and fine dining restaurants) and hotels (economy to five-star). As you recover, you can rest comfortably knowing that your guests have an array of options while in Charlotte, but are still only minutes from your bedside.
