NHRMC Foundation

Asclepian Society

Physician philanthropy enhancing patients' experiences

New Hanover Regional Medical Center is fortunate to have the best physicians in southeastern North Carolina working to deliver the best health care possible. And, New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation is honored to count many of them as donors who support the Foundation's fundraising goals and charitable mission.

Over the years, physician philanthropy has been a cornerstone of the NHRMC Foundation's mission to ensure the hospital has the charitable resources necessary to provide the very best care to our patients and community.

It is that commitment to NHRMC that inspired the Foundation - working with a group of dedicated physicians - to create the Asclepian Society.

The Asclepian Society formally recognizes the generosity of NHRMC physicians who have made an annual gift to enable us to continue to purchase state-of-the-art equipment, fund vital capital projects, provide staff and nursing education or other support necessary to deliver the best health care to our community. Together we can make a difference in the lives of people that you care for everyday. It will be an honor to recognize you as a member of the Asclepian Society.

Named for the Greek mythological god of medicine and healing, the Asclepian Society also exists to:

  • Raise funds for the Foundation to meet the needs of NHRMC and the patients we serve
  • Engage with and support the physicians of the community, with the goal of developing a culture of philanthropic support and community involvement
  • Serve as a system to identify and connect those interested in supporting NHRMC with the Foundation
  • Build relationships and partnerships with the hospital, its physicians and the community

The vision of New Hanover Regional Medical Center is to be the very best provider of comprehensive healthcare delivered with dignity, compassion, value and respect. The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation exists to provide philanthropic support to realize that vision and provide funding for special projects, equipment and technology needed. All contributions to the Foundation directly support NHRMC as it cares for the residents of our community regardless of ability to pay.
