Michael Jordan Donating $7M to Open Medical Clinics in Charlotte
Charlotte Hornets owner and NBA legend Michael Jordan will help start up two medical clinics in North Carolina by donating $7 million, according to Deon Roberts and Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics will be built in poor and troubled areas of Charlotte.
"Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate from the work we've done with the Hornets," spokeswoman Estee Portnoy said.
The clinics are expected to open in 2020, with Novant estimating to help 35,000 children and adults who don't currently have access to primary care.
