Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS), one of the nation's leading and most innovative healthcare organizations, provides a full spectrum of healthcare and wellness programs throughout North and South Carolina. Our diverse network of more than 791 care locations includes academic medical centers, hospitals, healthcare pavilions, physician practices, destination centers, surgical and rehabilitation centers, home health agencies, nursing homes, and hospice and palliative care. CHS works to improve and enhance the overall health and wellbeing of its communities through high quality patient care, education and research programs, and a variety of collaborative partnerships and initiatives.
Carolinas HealthCare System is an outgrowth of a community hospital originally founded in 1940. Since that time CHS has grown into one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive systems, with more than 60,000 full-time and part-time employees, more than 7,460 licensed beds (acute care and post-acute care), and an annual budget exceeding $7.7 billion (comparable to many Fortune 500 companies).
Premier facilities include Levine Cancer Institute, Levine Children’s Hospital, Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute, Carolinas HealthCare System Neurosciences Institute-Neurology and The Transplant Center. Other specialties include maternity (regular and high risk), assisted reproduction, interventional oncology, radiation therapy, minimally invasive surgery, and many others. Through careful integration of services, CHS has built some of the nation’s largest accredited multi-hospital networks for treatment of stroke and heart attack.
Ultimately, our success is determined not by the buildings we construct, but by the investment we make in the people and programs that bring each new facility to life. We are providing a broad framework of support that enables extraordinary professionals to bring caring, commitment, integrity and teamwork to a vitally important healing mission. The motivating force behind all of this activity is fulfilling our duty to meet community needs.
