Michael Jordan Making Biggest Donation Ever to NC City

The gift from the former National Basketball Association player and current majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets will cover the full cost of starting up the clinics.

"Novant Health is expected on Monday to announce Jordan's personal gift, which will fund Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics to be built in north and northwest Charlotte".

The 54-year-old has been extremely philanthropic over the past few years in addition to this recent donation for local health care.

Ahead of the new National Basketball Association season, Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan is taking some time and money to help people in need.

Jordan's spokesperson Estee Portnoy told The Associated Press Monday that he "feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people who really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project". Per his rep, the National Basketball Association legend learned of a 2014 study that found children in the North Carolina city have the worst odds of kids in any major U.S. city to get out of poverty.

Novant hopes the clinics will reduce unnecessary emergency room visits, because patients won't have to go so far out their way to get non-urgent medical needs taken care of.

The clinics are expected to open in 2020, with Novant estimating to help 35,000 children and adults who don't now have access to primary care.

"The gift will remove barriers to high-quality health care in some of the most vulnerable communities", said President and CEO of Novant Health Carl Armato. "We are thankful to Michael for his generosity".
