October 1, 2019

One of Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center Foundation’s top funding priorities is pediatric initiatives, so in January 2019 we launched a new annual giving program, the Children’s Trust. Under this program, we rely on what we call “Superhero donors” to spark change for so many children in need.

Letter from Saad Ehtisham, FACHE

President, Novant Health greater Charlotte market and Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center

As I look back on the ways COVID-19 has impacted our pediatric population, I am inspired by the way our teams worked together to ensure parents had access to their children inside our walls, behavioral health needs were met and wellness visits remained safe, as they are vital to the health of our children.

Our team members have never lost sight of the future, a time when the coronavirus no longer monopolizes global healthcare communities. And throughout this year, we’ve continued advancing new initiatives that will bring even more remarkable care to our community.
