In a proactive step toward enhancing local healthcare, Bladen County Hospital hosted its inaugural Community Leaders Luncheon on Wednesday. The event, orchestrated by the hospital’s foundation, aimed to foster dialogue between healthcare officials and local leaders, presenting an opportunity to share insights into the health system’s progress and community impact. Spencer Cummings, President of Cape Fear Valley Bladen County Hospital, and Sabrina Brooks, Vice President of the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation, led discussions, emphasizing the crucial role of philanthropy in extending quality healthcare services.

The luncheon highlighted ongoing projects, such as the construction of a new medical office building, designed to centralize care and reduce the need for community members to travel for essential services. This initiative is part of a broader effort to address healthcare accessibility in the region, ensuring that local facilities are equipped to meet growing needs effectively. With a commitment to keeping healthcare local, the foundation continues to drive initiatives that not only enhance service delivery but also aim to retain and attract healthcare professionals through education and development programs.
