Earlier this year, I posted about UNC Health Care's work with Habitat for Humanity.
More than 300 of our employees worked hard to build a Habitat house for our UNC Health Care co-worker. I am pleased to report that the keys have been handed over and that Habitat house is now a home to one of our own employees. Congrats for a job well done!
The house is part of Phoenix Place, an affordable subdivision of 50 green-certified homes within the Rogers Road community in Chapel Hill. Phase 1 of the construction will include 17 houses, 14 of which will be owned by UNC or UNC Health Care employees. UNC Health Care plans to sponsor a second house in the spring of 2011.
At UNC Health Care, we're proud to support our employees, communities and our state. Our system touches thousands of North Carolinians through our efforts each day.
And Habitat is just one way we do this. This interactive map of our state, which we recently developed, demonstrates our system's strong ties to the communities we serve through employment, patient and charity care data.
I look forward to our continued support of our state, and am hopeful that even more of our employees will exemplify our commitment to caring at the Habitat build site this spring!
