*Michael Jordan’s new health clinic launched on May 7 in his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina. The NBA legend attended the grand opening event and became emotional while addressing the crowd.

“It’s good to be home, first and foremost,” Jordan said, FadeAway World reports. 

“That’s what this clinic is about, when the families are not able to support, we’re there to support. Doesn’t have any money, doesn’t matter, we’re going to do whatever we can to support you because that’s what happened to me. That’s where I got it from,” he continued. 

“So, we did it in Charlotte and now we’re going to do it here in Wilmington,” Jordan added. “Which makes it even more special because this is where I came from and no matter how you see Michael Jordan, this is where I started, this is where I’m always going to be a part of.”

The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic is located on Greenfield St.

In 2021, Jordan announced he donated $10M to open two new health clinics around Wilmington, NC.

The clinics focus on bringing primary care to the uninsured, underinsured, and marginalized communities. This is the second time Jordan has partnered with Novant Health. He previously donated money to open two family clinics in Charlotte.⁠

⁠”Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance.’ Jordan said previously in a statement. “Wilmington holds a special place in my heart and it’s truly gratifying to be able to give back to the community that supported me throughout my life.’”

Jordan was his mother, Deloris, and several dignitaries for last week’s ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Wilmington clinic.  According to FadeAway World, work has begun on the second clinic near the Creekwood South community on Princess Place Drive. 

In 2019, Charlotte saw the opening of two clinics, which collectively served over 4,500 patients during their initial two years of operation.

Jordan said, “I am confident Novant Health’s new clinic will positively impact individuals and families throughout Wilmington. I’m profoundly grateful to help make this day happen for my hometown.”
