Lenoir Memorial Board votes to pursue strategic partnership with Novant Health

After a yearlong selection process for a strategic partner, the Lenoir Memorial Board of Directors has unanimously voted to pursue a partnership through a management agreement with Novant Health, hospital officials announced today.  The decision follows a thorough search and exploration process led by the board to select a partner who would best position Lenoir Memorial for the future of healthcare and create a stronger health system for the Kinston community.  "For more than a century, Kinston has had a community hospital and the chapter we're beginning today will preserve that legacy of local healthcare for future generations," said Gary Black, president and CEO of Lenoir Memorial.  "Through an affiliation with Novant Health, we will further enhance the services we provide, ensuring that high-quality care remains close to home."  The Lenoir Memorial Board now enters discussions with Novant Health to structure the terms of the partnership, leading to the signing of the management agreement, which the board hopes to finalize this spring.
