“Times have changed. Faced with unsustainable growth in health insurance premiums, employers are beginning to see wellness as an investment that can increase their profitability.
In South Carolina, hospitals are eager to provide wellness leadership for their communities. That’s why we’ve asked NC Prevention Partners to teach us the lessons they’ve learned by working with our friends at the North Carolina Hospital Association. Our hospitals are already seeing the benefits of this partnership.”
- Thornton Kirby, President and CEO, South Carolina Hospital Association
“As a small non-profit, NC Prevention Partners is uniquely positioned to work with hospitals to help them effectively and efficiently achieve enhancements to employee wellness and patient health. When I make presentations out of state and share with others what NC hospitals have accomplished, it always draws enthusiastic applause. Their achievements have helped and supported hospital leaders to establish healthier environments and increase preventive health benefits and resources. At the start of the tobacco-free campus initiative, I didn’t think it was possible that all hospitals would be 100% tobacco free. They have proved me wrong; I’m glad I’m not a betting man.”
- William A. Pully, President, NC Hospital Association
