|Tuesday, May 22, 2012|
With the support of Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger, Representative Harold Brubaker and Senator Tom Apodaca worked with WakeMed Health & Hospitals and UNC Health Care to develop partnerships in important areas of medical education and health care delivery. The parties have also agreed to collaboration and transparency in other areas and have agreed to resolve current disputes amicably in support of an ongoing relationship.
“This agreement is good for North Carolina and good for both of these outstanding health care systems,” said Speaker Tillis. “We all know that our state has many pressing health care needs. In a time of limited resources, it is vital that we forge partnerships to get the maximum return on our resources. This agreement builds a strong framework through which WakeMed and UNC Health Care can do that.”
