May is Nurses Month!

Throughout the many challenges the COVID-19 pandemic brought, Vidant nurses remain steadfast in their commitment to caring for patients and communities throughout eastern North Carolina. Vidant will join other health care systems across the nation in recognizing the expansion of Nurses Week to Nurses Month in May. The American Nurses Association (ANA) Enterprise selected Nurses Make a Difference as this year’s theme to honor and support this noble profession. You can honor a nurse, or any caregiver, who has made a difference in your life by clicking the button below.

Get Involved!

Make an impact! With you, we are committed to making better health care a reality in eastern North Carolina. Through your generous donations and unwavering support, we are experiencing remarkable growth and developing new relationships and partnerships that allow us to transform health care from Windsor to Kenansville and from Tarboro to the coast – and many communities in between.

Vidant Cancer Care

We’ve used Foundation funds to increase early detection and screening, as well as survivorship and support programs — but we need to do more. Why? Because eastern North Carolina has a higher cancer mortality rate than the rest of the state — a statistic we can change with your help.

Children's Miracle Network

Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has been raising funds for hospitals across the United States and Canada — and our very own Maynard Children’s Hospital is one of them.

Heart and Vascular

With internationally recognized specialists in cardiovascular care, Vidant Health offers the very best in heart and vascular services at every one of our hospitals. Our expertise comes together, however, at East Carolina Heart Institute — an incredible state-of-the-art facility made possible largely through Foundation funds.

Regional Partners

The Vidant Health Foundation raises funds and channels them toward health-related projects throughout eastern North Carolina. And the best part is that your gift stays local — every penny. It helps fund leading-edge equipment, new facilities and programs, meaning your friends and family can receive the care they need in their home community.


Dr. Raab's Story

Why do you give?

For Dr. Mary Raab, it's personal:

"I give because this is my home. I love to see our community thrive. I want the best health care possible, not only for me, but for my children, my grandchildren and for everyone who lives here. I truly feel that the more we do as individuals, the larger the impact will be for the entire community."
