New Hanover County will host ‘Q&A’ session with PAG regarding hospital sale [Free]

WILMINGTON — Residents across the county have had concerns regarding the possible sale of New Hanover County Regional Medical Center and have wanted their voices heard.

This week, the county Partnership Advisory Group (PAG) will host a virtual Q&A session to help address some of these concerns.

“Members of the NHRMC Partnership Advisory Group will hold a Facebook Live Question & Answer Session with the community on Wednesday, July 8 at 5:30 p.m. This session will be streamed live on the county’s Facebook page, and the community will be able to ask questions of the advisory group’s members through the Facebook comments of the live stream. It will also be available to watch live on NHCTV.com and on NHCTV’s cable stations: Spectrum channel 13 and Charter channel 5,” according to New Hanover County.

Last week it was officially announced that the PAG was recommending the sale to Novant and UNC Health. While the process has been conducted mostly in the open, there are still questions for PAG members about their decision as well as what is to come next.

“During the live stream, the community can ask questions of the advisory group’s members through the Facebook comments of the live stream. This will be a good chance for the public to ask questions and learn about the PAG’s process, research, and recommendation,” the release concludes.
