At Wilmington Health, we’re leading the charge locally on higher quality, lower cost healthcare, and we look forward to other healthcare providers and organizations joining us in making our community healthier both physically and financially.
We are looking internally at the quality of care we provide, using the latest technology to find gaps in care and also show us when our providers are exceeding expectations, but we aren’t stopping at quality.
Jeff James, CEO of Wilmington Health, explains why higher quality and lower cost healthcare is important and what Wilmington Health is doing to make the community healthier and more informed.

Healthcare costs well surpassed all other goods and services measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U), illustrating the need to lower healthcare costs. Wilmington Health is doing its part to help in this effort.
Consumers need to take charge of their healthcare to see how rates affect their out-of-pocket insurance expenditures. Wilmington Health's costs and quality measures are completely transparent to help you make the best decision possible.
Eleven years ago, we implemented an Electronic Health Record (EHR), which allows us to not only compile data but to analyze that data to see how well we are doing as an organization; how our physicians are doing; and most importantly, how our patients are doing.
