Dr. P.K. Vyas, the founder of the Eastern Carolina Medical Center in Benson, N.C., has generously established a $1 million challenge at Campbell University to support its School of Osteopathic Medicine. He did so in order to encourage Campbell alumni and friends to join him in advancing the medical school’s efforts to meet the health care needs of North Carolina.
During the challenge, Dr. Vyas will match dollar for dollar any gift you make to Campbell's medical school. This is an extraordinary but a time-limited opportunity that will increase the impact that your contribution to the School of Osteopathic Medicine will make. Give to the Dr. P.K. Vyas $1 Million Challenge »
"As the opening of Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine approaches, it’s imperative that the medical school continues to receive financial support, ensuring that faculty and students will get the resources they need to fulfill the university's mission to address the shortage of primary care physicians in North Carolina. I hope others will join me in supporting Campbell in this critical endeavor."
– Dr. P.K. Vyas, Founder, Eastern Carolina Medical Center
Thank you for considering an investment in this unique opportunity. And thank you for all you do to support our mission to educate men and women for Christian service in the world.
The Dr. P.K. Vyas $1 Million Challenge was established by Dr. P.K. Vyas, who founded the Eastern Carolina Medical Center, in Benson, N.C., in February 1987 with just two staff members. His commitment to excellence allowed the practice to grow to more than 50 employees and offer complete medical care under one roof. In addition to providing exceptional health care for his patients, Dr. Vyas also serves his community by giving back to the culture and people that surround him. His several sizable contributions to local organizations, schools, parks and recreation centers, and towns have made a tremendous difference in Harnett and Johnston counties.
In addition to his philanthropy, Dr. Vyas also offers many classes and countless resources toward patient education and wellness through the Eastern Carolina Medical Center. He believes that service is an honor and not an obligation, and displays gratitude for being able to serve.
Dr. Vyas is a graduate of M.S. University in India and trained at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. He's certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, American Board of Physician Specialties in geriatric medicine, and American Board of Urgent Care Medicine.
