Vidant Health is a non-profit hospital system made up of eight hospitals, physician practices, home health, hospice, wellness centers and other health care services serving 1.4 million people in 29 counties in Eastern North Carolina. Their flagship Vidant Medical Center is affiliated with the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville.

Vidant Health is the largest private employer in Eastern North Carolina.[1]

Three Vidant Health hospitals: Vidant Edgecombe Hospital, Vidant Roanoke-Chowan Hospital and The Outer Banks Hospital have been named among the nation's top performers for quality care by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. Only 405 hospitals in the United States earned this honor. Just 14 were in North Carolina.[2]

In 2002, the organization implemented a program in which diabetes educators regularly visit rural clinics to improve glycemic control in African-American patients.[3]

Vidant Health changed their name from University Health Systems of Eastern Carolina in January 2012.[4]
