As humans, we are composed of many systems joined together to create our healthiest selves. At Carolinas HealthCare System, we follow a similar model – as many teams forming connections to work as one. The following stories are powerful demonstrations of those connections – between patients and their families, patients and our teams, and patients and their local communities.
