CHS prepares to transfer health services to Mecklenburg County

CHARLOTTE – Teams from Mecklenburg County and Carolinas Healthcare System are working to move health services to the county.

The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners voted in July to end the county’s contract with Carolinas Healthcare System no later than June 2013. During the past few weeks, staff members from both groups have been working together to plan for the future and keep services at current levels through the transition, according to a news release.

A county transition team has met twice with Carolinas Healthcare System officials and created five work groups to coordinate communication, human resources, budget and finance, real estate and inventory and information technology.
