At New Hanover Regional Medical Center we understand the complex needs of AIDS/HIV patients and will provide a treatment plan to help manage your condition and its potential complications. We provide compassionate, quality care for patients of all ages, and throughout each stage of HIV, from acute HIV to latency to AIDS. We monitor your CD4 (T-cell) count and tailor your medication program specifically to you. Our goal is to keep your viral load undetectable, minimizing or eliminating the effects of HIV.
