CHARLOTTE, N.C. --  Michael Jordan is set to hit Charlotte television screens again this month in a new Presbyterian Hospital advertisement.

In a YouTube video posted by the hospital on Friday, Jordan is paying a visit to the hospital for a check-up.  First he has to remove his six NBA championship rings he won with the Bulls so a nurse can get an accurate measurement of his weight.

Presbyterian Healthcare and its parent company, Winston-Salem's Novant Health, agreed to a 10-year sponsorship deal with Jordan and the Bobcats in March. In return, organizations like Presbyterian Orthopaedic Hospital get to use Jordan's likeness in commercials.

Later in the 30-second spot a doctor checks his heartbeat, which sounds like a dribbling basketball.

"Anything wrong," Jordan asks.

"Everything's perfect...for you," the doctor answers.

Jordan has several national endorsement deals, but this is his first in Charlotte since becoming an NBA owner.

MJ first appeared in an ad for Presbyterian Hospital in May.
