A significant CHS milestone occurred in 2010 when Levine Cancer Institute was formed as a result of a $20 million leadership gift from the Leon Levine Foundation. Institute funding is being used to expand treatment and research facilities in charlotte, and to enhance community-based care at CHS hospitals throughout the Carolinas. The Institute serves a catalyst to share preventive strategies and best practices throughout the entire system.
Another benefit of CHS hospital integration has been a steady expansion of networks focused on emergency care. A growing number of CHS hospitals now have nationally accredited chest pain centers, and a comprehensive stroke network was formed in 2010 with plans to add all remaining CHS hospitals in future years.
Once characteristic common to all CHS facilities is a mission that includes commitment to public service and outreach to all segments of the population.
