ECU and Vidant Health are partnering to create two senior faculty positions in the Division of Hematology and Oncology at ECU’s Brody School of Medicine. The positions are being funded by a generous gift to the Vidant Cancer Care campaign by Penny and Robert Barnhill Jr. of Tarboro.

“We are passionate about giving back to the community within which we work and live,” said Robert Barnhill. “It is our hope that we can continue to support medical research and health care initiatives in eastern North Carolina with this gift.”

Barnhill, a native of Edgecombe County, graduated from ECU in 1970 with a degree in business administration. His family’s company, Barnhill Contracting, was founded in 1949 and is headquartered in Rocky Mount. The company does work across the southeastern United States in site infrastructure, highway and commercial building construction. Barnhill and his wife, Penny, have two sons who work with the family business and a daughter who resides in Charlotte.

“The Brody School of Medicine and Vidant are leaders in providing skilled doctors and essential care to eastern North Carolinians,” ECU Chancellor Cecil P. Staton said. “That commitment to health and service continues with these professorships made possible by the generosity of the Barnhills. It is a gift that will inspire faculty to push the frontiers of their scholarship and research as well as prepare thousands of students to follow their path as successful physicians.”

Vidant officials said they are excited about the opportunity to continue to build and enhance Vidant Cancer Care through this partnership with the Barnhills and ECU.

“We are honored and thrilled that the Barnhills chose to support the Vidant Cancer Care campaign in this manner,” said Dr. Michael Waldrum, CEO of Vidant Health. “Vidant Health has dedicated significant resources to build a premier cancer program, focusing on developing a sustainable, regionally-connected system-of-care that will require effective physician leadership on all levels.”

Dr. Mark Stacy, dean of Brody, expressed his gratitude for the Barnhills’ gift and the effect it will have on eastern North Carolina.

“We’ve all been touched by cancer in one way or another,” Stacy said. “We’re grateful to the Barnhills for their generous contribution to battling this disease that creates an especially heavy burden on our part of the state. This gift creates new opportunities to explore and advance the way we deliver oncology care here.”

The two professorships will be named the “Barnhill Family Distinguished Professorship” and the “Robert and Penny Barnhill Distinguished Professorship.”

Vidant and ECU will work together to determine the timing of the creation of the positions, as well as tenure status, compensation, responsibilities and candidate selection. This partnership is just one of the many ways Vidant and ECU are working together to support patient care, physician engagement, education and research.

Vidant Cancer Care at the Eddie and Jo Allison Smith Tower in Greenville opened to patients on March 25. The estimated cost of construction and equipping the cancer center and bed tower is $174 million. Approximately $50 million is being funded through philanthropy.
