Despite Challenges to Healthcare Industry, Novant Health Sees Steady Growth

Each week, WFDD contributor Justin Catanoso interviews a reporter from our media partner, the Triad Business Journal. This week's Business Report focuses on a major player in the state's healthcare industry: Winston-Salem-based Novant Health.

Last year, Novant Health Systems initiated a brand change to create a united front for all their 17 facilities. All locations now have the Novant Health name on their signage and other marketing materials.
