For Our FirstHealth Community

Clara McLean House

Clara’s House is a vibrant resource for the FirstHealth community.  We provide a beautiful and convenient setting for professional development programs and Foundation related events.



Physician Leadership Academy

HD Maynard, an executive coach and consultant based in Southern Pines, addresses members of FirstHealth’s inaugural Physician Leadership Program class, which met monthly last year at the Clara McLean House.  Phase Two for the graduates is under way.

Where will tomorrow’s physician leaders come from?  Will they have the skills and knowledge to sustain the highest quality health care for patients from throughout the region and beyond?  Can they keep FirstHealth of the Carolinas competitive, financially secure and ready to meet health care needs through the decades ahead?

The Physician Leadership Academy was created to answer these questions.  The Clara McLean House provides a home for the program.  Participating physicians meet for training in the Shadowlawn Event Room, where they complete classes on topics such as communicating, leading change, building and managing teams, financial management and managing for results.

Nursing Enrichment

The quality of our nursing staff is a hallmark of FirstHealth of the Carolinas, but shortfalls in the numbers of nurses are forecast across the United States.  The Foundation has made nursing enrichment a priority initiative for the continued recruitment and retention of a high quality nursing staff.

Clara’s House hosts professional development training, nursing recognition events and other nursing enrichment activities throughout the year.  To learn more, click here, or call The Foundation of FirstHealth at (910) 695-7500.


FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital Auxiliary

MRH Auxiliary

The FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital Auxiliary recently donated $100,000 from Gift Shop net proceeds to the Clara McLean House. Their generous donation helps ensure that families and patients continue to have a welcoming place of respite when a loved one is in the hospital.

An integral part of The Foundation, the FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital Auxiliary identifies and funds projects, small and large, that support hospital patients, improve health care delivery and promote healthy lifestyle choices.  

The Auxiliary was established in 1930.  Since 2005 alone, the Auxiliary has committed funds of $1.7 million to support services for patients in our community.  The Auxiliary holds events and meetings at Clara’s House and contributes a significant percentage of the funds it raises for the facility’s operation.

To learn more or to become an Auxiliary volunteer, call The Foundation of FirstHealth at (910) 695-7500.
