Medicare regulators recommend returning Novant Health NHRMC to good standing status


WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A document Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center officials shared with WECT shows the state is recommending the hospital be placed back in good standing with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. A study previously conducted on June 29 placed the hospital’s status at “Immediate Risk” due to patient safety concerns.

The hospital was put at immediate risk because of its non-compliance with the partnership’s requirements for patient rights, nursing services, emergency services, quality assessment and performance improvement and the governing body. Both surveys were conducted by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Division. State Medicare regulators have now recommended lifting the immediate risk status after conducting a follow-up study from August 8 to 11.

If the partnership had expired, Medicare would no longer make payments for any patients hospitalized after Aug. 12 and potentially no longer make payments for patients hospitalized before the deadline.
