Michael Jordan funds healthcare facility in Charlotte

October 28, 2019

Michael Jordan and Novant Health have partnered to  develop two comprehensive medical clinics that expand access to healthcare for children and adults in underserved and at-risk communities of Charlotte, N.C., according to an article on the Forbes website.

The first newly-built medical clinic will provide primary care and preventative care – including behavior health, physical therapy, social work, oral health and family planning on a business corridor easily accessible via public transit and next door to the county’s department of social services.

Jordan, who is the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets, expressed his desire to make a tangible difference with his family and business partners in the long view of improving the lives of local residents at risk for generational poverty, the article said.

Using footage of Jordan playing basketball, the facility designers mapped out his flight path to the basket. From the curve, they designed a sculptural screen that stretches the width of the façade, where the tips of each of the 39 aluminum fins hit a point along his path.
