-- As a result of Strong’s approach, each and every patient has an extensive number of
specialists who can be seamlessly integrated into their health care team.
-- Strong is also characterized by having medical clinicians who are comfortable working with many other specialists in an interdisciplinary, team-based environment. Familiarity and ease with this level of collaboration allows staff to harness the powerful interaction of three distinct but interrelated missions: research, education, and patient care. The fruit of this interaction is found in not only how clinicians teach but also how they practice.
-- Indeed, all of Strongâ€™s staff is committed to consistently delivering a high quality patient experience. This includes working to build partnerships with patients and their families along with identifying ways to empower patients with information and the tools they need to make informed decisions about their health care.
-- The reach of the UNC Medical Center extends beyond Chapel Hill and into the greater Triangle area through its network of primary care and specialty physician practices located in Orange, Wake, Durham, Chatham and Lee counties. These offices, in addition to the UNC Family Medicine Center and Ambulatory Care Center, provide the basic health care outpatient services most families need, in convenient locations. Over 800,000 people are cared for at UNC practices and clinics each year.
