The theme of this year's Annual Report is "Accelerating the Pace of Change."
The report summarizes a full year’s worth of accomplishments by Carolinas HealthCare System employees – working as a team to transform the way healthcare is delivered and to deliver that care in a manner that keeps patients first, always.
Key developments during 2013 included the introduction of groundbreaking procedures, the opening of many new facilities to provide expanded access for patients; and the continued recruitment of nationally recognized medical professionals. In the stories that follow, you will see countless examples of the ways by which our physicians, nurses and staff provide extraordinary care. The characteristic they share is passion for the vital mission that has been entrusted to them.
