The hospital received the award at the United Way of North Carolina annual meeting held earlier in February. The Spirit awards provide statewide recognition for outstanding commitment and support to communities through local United Way involvement. Alamance Regional was one of 43 companies throughout North Carolina to receive the award.

 “Alamance Regional and United Way both share a goal of making our community a better place to live. The generous support offered by our employees also reflects our core values of compassion and leadership,” says John Currin, president and CEO of the hospital. “We are honored to receive the Spirit of North Carolina Award.”

Organizations and companies were judged on a variety of criteria for the awards, including leadership giving, volunteerism, employee participation and giving levels, year-round education, corporate support, incentive programs, and campaign rallies just to name a few.

Alamance Regional has been a long-term supporter of United Way of Alamance County. In addition to campaign support, Alamance Regional works jointly with United Way of Alamance County, the Alamance Health Department and Healthy Alamance to conduct a community health assessment every three years. This assessment helps identify community health and social needs. Alamance Regional employees also serve on United Way committees and as campaign leaders in Alamance County.
