Community Benefit: Democratic National Convention

Democratic National Convention

Carolinas HealthCare System played a key role in providing healthcare services and information during the Democratic National Convention in September. Throughout the convention, a corporate incident command center was staffed 24/7 at Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville to respond to any major medical issues that might have arisen.

Outside Time Warner Cable Arena, which was the principal convention venue, Carolinas HealthCare System's unique mobile hospital (Carolinas MED-1) cared for delegates, visitors and law enforcement officials. At the same time, other healthcare teams provided on-site assistance inside the arena.

At the CarolinaFest street celebration, pocket maps were distributed showing the locations of Carolinas HealthCare System facilities in all of the center city and outlying neighborhoods where delegates were being housed. Staff members also distributed other materials with general health and safety tips.
