A message from Mr. Park

Please read the following message from Gary L. Park, President of UNC Hospitals.

With the year coming to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to simply say "thank you" for your many contributions to the success of UNC Hospitals and UNC Health Care. 

In particular, I would like to acknowledge your outstanding care and service to our patients and their families. "Carolina Care" is clearly having an huge impact on our organization, as we were once again recognized as # 1 among UHC hospitals for "patient centeredness" (commonly referred to as patient satisfaction at UNC Hospitals).  

UHC is a national organization comprised exclusively of the leading academic medical centers across the country, including more than 110 members. This is an outstanding accomplishment and this marks the second time in three years that we have achieved the # 1 ranking.

Finally, "thank you" for making our most recent Joint Commission survey such an overwhelming success. The surveyors had many kind things to say about our outstanding care, the knowledge and energy of our staff, and the positive attitude of everyone they encountered during the week long survey.

With the patient at the center of all that we do, I am very confident that UNC Hospitals will continue to be one of the nation's leaders in patient care.

I wish you and your family a very happy and safe Holiday Season. 


- Gary
