Q. I’m new to area and confused about offered health care. What are the differences between New Hanover Health Care and Wilmington Health?  Thank you.

A. New Hanover Regional Medical Center is the largest hospital in the area. It includes the Zimmer Cancer Center and the Betty H. Cameron Women’s and Children’s Hospital. NHRMC also operates Cape Fear Hospital in Wilmington and Pender Memorial Hospital in Burgaw.

Wilmington Health is a multi-specialty clinic with primary care providers integrated into the system. Different locations from Jacksonville to Southport focus on different specialties. It is separate from NHRMC, but its doctors do tend to patients at NHRMC. Wilmington Health also operates Urgent Care facilities in Monkey Junction and Jacksonville.

Is the New Hanover Regional Medical Center a nonprofit, for-profit, government or quasi-government agency?

Why does NHRMC President Jack Barto make more than presidents of larger hospitals?
