Community Resources

Community Resources

We’ve put together a list of health resources and supportive services for all 27 eastern North Carolina counties in the Access East service area. We’ve broken things down by types of service, since organizing everything by individual counties would produce a massive, difficult-to-navigate list.

Please note that while we strive to keep this information current, community resources change regularly, so you may encounter something out-of-date here. If so, we’d be grateful if you’d let us know so we can correct the listed information as quickly as possible, for everyone’s benefit; please drop us a note through our Contact Form, or email to, with COMMUNITY RESOURCES in the subject line.

Community Health Centers

best-greener-web-featherSpecifically, we mean what are known as federally qualified health centers, or FQHCs. These community-based regional clinics provide patient-centered healthcare that brings together high quality medical, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy, and supportive services, without regard to a person’s ability to pay. There are a number of them in our 27-county coverage area, often with multiples per county, though they are not found in all 27 counties.

Note that this list is not of every FQHC in our region; it only includes clinics, and only those with permanent addresses. (The practice/office/physician name appears in bold.)

Health Departments

health-department-web-featherClick here to be taken to a list of Health Directors across the state, then simply pick your own county from the drop-down menu and, in the new page that opens, click on the director’s name to be taken to a page that will include an easy-to-find website link. Now click that link to go to your county’s site, and you should have no trouble finding that department’s address and other
contact information.


Here you’ll find all hospitals in our 27-county service area.

Note that if you or someone with you is having a true medical emergency, do NOT take the time to look up your own closest hospital, but call 9-1-1 immediately.

Medicaid Doctors, Specialists, and Dentists

If you’re interested in seeing any of providers linked to below, please confirm with them first that they are still accepting new Medicaid patients.


Go here to access a list of specialist physicians, listed by county, who have accepted Medicaid in the past.


Go here for lists of dentists and dental professionals, arranged by county, who have accepted Medicaid or Health Choice in the past.

Mental Health and Behavioral Health

Medicaid-covered behavioral health services in our 27-county service area are coordinated by three different MCOs, or managed-care organizations: Trillium Health Resources, Eastpointe, and Cardinal Innovations Healthcare. These MCOs do not provide direct care to Medicaid patients, but rather help establish relationships with providers for mental health, substance-abuse, and intellectual/developmental disability services.

Consult the Regional Behavioral Health Map to see which MCO covers your own county.

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) has put together a list of mental health and behavioral health providers who do offer direct care. You can download that list, arranged by county, here. Note that you will have to contact individual providers to see if they accept new Medicaid patients, though the MCO that serves your county should be able to provide you with that information as well.

N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS)

This link takes you to the main NCDHHS page, connecting you to a wealth of information and resources related to North Carolina’s management and delivery of health- and human-related services, particularly for some of our state’s most vulnerable citizens, including children, the elderly, the disabled, and low-income families.

The NCDHHS itself is divided into multiple divisions and offices, though all fall under four broad categories: health, human services, administrative, and support functions.

Social Services Departments (DSS)

Use this map at the main N.C. Department of Health and Human Services website to find your local Department of Social Services office. Click over the outline of your own county, and basic contact information for that DSS office should appear.

We’ve also included a link to the most recent list of all DSS offices across the state, arranged by county, with contact information included for each office.

Public Transportation

Not all parts of our 27-county service area have public-transportation services, but below is a list of providers who do, arranged by counties or cities of service. You’ll find contact information at each link and, often, hours of service as well.

Other Resources

An excellent source for information on community resources statewide is the United Way’s NC 2-1-1 website, which allows you to search by county, and by type of service.
