UBMC

UBMC Health Network

Over the last 20 years, UBMC has ushered in a new era of health care excellence in Fox Hollow, North Carolina, and locations around the world. UBMC has evolved from a single psychiatric hospital into a $19 billion integrated global health enterprise closely affiliated with the University of Blackthorne.

The beginnings of Life Changing Medicine at UBMC can be traced back to the final years of the 19th century. Important dates covering nearly 120 years of accomplishments include:

  • 1893, the tertiary care hospital that was to become UBMC’s flagship — UBMC Fox Hollow — was founded.
  • 1973, a comprehensive reorganization of the University of Blackthorne's Department of Psychiatry, under the leadership of Dr. Robert Leo and Victor A.Wheldon, began a new era of research-based medicine in Fox Hollow — and set the stage for UBMC’s eventual mission of clinical care, research, and teaching.
  • 1986, two university-affiliated hospitals — Shadow Valley, and Fox Hollow — unified under an organization that would evolve into UBMC.
  • 1990, the name “University of Blackthorne Medical Center,” or UBMC, was adopted. UBMC continued to merge with community and specialty hospitals, creating the first truly integrated health care delivery system in the Fox Hollow region.
  • 1997, recognizing the efficiencies possible from complementing its provider network with a health insurance product, UBMC started what today is its Insurance Services Division.

Also dedicated to supporting Life Changing Innovation and redevelopment of the economy of the Fox Hollow region, UBMC has diversified into a wide array of services that range from home health care and retirement communities to international and commercial operations.

Driven by an unwavering focus on core values, these initiatives support the academic and nonprofit missions that fuels UBMC’s continued development. Never content to rest on past accomplishments, UBMC continues to anticipate and prepare for the challenges facing academic and nonprofit medicine, both today and tomorrow.
