Hope is in Everything We Do
A Campaign to Transform Care
Giving Hope is a comprehensive philanthropic campaign to raise $500 million to transform healthcare in our region. It's a commitment to the health and well-being of every individual we serve, and it encompasses every institute, program and aspect of Atrium Health.
Your support will enable us to invest in modern facilities, nationally distinguished physicians, innovative education and research, and groundbreaking population health programs - all right here in our community.
Our story began in 1940, when - on the heels of the Great Depression - the citizens of Charlotte funded the construction of a new hospital.
Since that time, we've grown from a single hospital to the largest provider in the region. With roots planted firmly in the hearts of our communities, we've embraced change and forged new paths to bring the very best to those we serve.
We've faced challenges along the way. But that's the thing about hope: It allows us to face obstacles head-on, with determination to defy the odds.
A vision for the future
Today, a time of great change is upon us. By 2030, the population of our core market is projected to grow exponentially. And almost daily, healthcare itself is transformed by new innovations and delivery models.
With this change comes both challenge and opportunity. It's a challenge to ensure that every patient in our growing community has access to convenient, affordable, quality care. But more importantly, it's an opportunity to improve more lives.
We have a vision to build a brighter future for health. And we're leading the way, investing in the care that you, your family, your friends and neighbors - all of us - hope is there when we need it.
In 2018, Atrium Health committed $1 billion to address the growing needs of our network. But as with our beginning 80 years ago, our vision can only be realized with our community's support. Giving Hope: The Campaign for Atrium Health seeks to raise the $500 million required to complete the challenge of creating the health system of the future - one designed to provide health, hope and healing, for all.
Atrium Health is a not-for-profit healthcare organization, which means that all income above expenses is used to improve the health of our community.
Today, our enterprise includes more than 42 hospitals and 1500 care locations across 4 states.
As a top employer in the region, Atrium Health provides more than 70,000 jobs.
Each day, we spend $5.67 million to provide care for the uninsured and underinsured.
In the last 5 years, we’ve invested $2.9 billion into renovations, new care locations, equipment upgrades and other capital projects.
Between 2010 and 2030, our 14-county core market expects a population increase of 620,000.
