We offer education and screening programs to our community to help our neighbors take better care of their health and live healthier lives.
We recognize our role in the health of the community involves more than providing care within our walls. We offer education, outreach and screening programs to help our neighbors take better care of their health.
If your group or association is interested in health information or free health screenings, let New Hanover Regional Medical Center help.
Bystander CPR saves lives. Learn how you can perform Hands-Only CPR when someone needs help. NHRMC Emergency Medical Services offers training sessions around the community.
Heart disease, which can lead to a heart attack, is a leading cause of death. Symptoms of a heart attack in women can differ from the more widely known symptoms for men. And women are less likely to recognize or acknowledge symptoms and more likely to wait longer to seek help.
New Hanover Regional Medical Center's Heart Center wants to help the community learn more about heart disease and ways to reduce risk. The NHRMC Foundation's Red Dress Project was established to support that effort through education and screenings for women.
