Driving remarkable care

Thank you to our donors for driving remarkable care

We want our patients and their guests to know your feedback is important to us and through our patient satisfaction surveys, we heard there is a critical need for transportation within and outside of Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center.

You let us know simply getting from the parking deck to the intensive care unit can be a challenge. You shared that after a visit in our Cancer Center, patients receiving treatment could use a lift back to their cars.

For those who require special assistance, we are here for you and are excited for the opportunity to share how our donors are helping us hit the gas pedal and literally driving remarkable care within and outside of our medical centers.

Alisha Hutchens, NHFMC vice president, Jay Crawford, volunteer driver and Chad Setliff, NHFMC president.
NHFMCF team members: Heather Egan, Development officer, LaShonda Hairston, Stewardship coordinator and fund manager and Stephanie Nichols, Administrative Specialist.
Three of our seven volunteer drivers: Jay Crawford, Travis Watson and Scott Bottenus with Calvin Smith, NH supervisor, parking and traffic.

Thank you to each of those generous donors who helped us fund these courtesy carts which include:

  • Six-passenger seating with adjustable bucket seats
  • Six-hinged hard doors
  • Electric/low speed vehicle with a top speed of 25 MPH
  • Headlights, brake lights and turn signals
  • Street-rated tires
  • Regenerative brakes, front disc brakes and rear hydraulic drum brakes
  • Seat belts
  • Automotive-grade windshield and wiper
  • Rugged rear bumper
  • Heater

Where are we driving remarkable care?

At Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, you can grab a seat on one of the courtesy shuttles at our D. L. Davis Cancer Center or on one of the two that run between our curbside assistance and our North Tower decks.

We also are excited to share we are now driving remarkable care in Kernersville at the Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center.

Thank you to our generous donors and those who provided critical feedback to support this initiative. The investment in these courtesy shuttles will help increase ease of access in and around our medical centers and enhance the overall patient and guest experience.

Our donors make driving remarkable care possible

You are the catalyst that helps us shrink the gaps between what is and what could be remarkable care. Your gift to support our areas of greatest need allows us to accelerate Novant Health’s mission and our mission to engage and connect donors to Novant Health programs and initiatives that save lives and improve the health of the communities we serve.

With your support, programs and services reach our patients sooner and we are able to provide a more profound impact to the overall patient experience. 

In gratitude

Thank you to all of the generous donors who support the needs of our patients and their families through unrestricted gifts. The courtesy shuttles at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center were supported through unrestricted giving to Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center Foundation.
