The Community Care Clinic was established in 2006, in response to a growing number of uninsured in our community. It is estimated that over 4,000 adults in Watauga County will remain uninsured in spite of the Affordable Care Act. Our clinic is located in the Hannah Building (the former Health Department) off of Bamboo Road.

Our Integrated health care includes primary care, behavioral health, a range of specialties, case management and health education.           Applalachian Dental Care and Western Carolina Eye Associates partner with the clinic to provide reduced cost care. Volunteerism (both medical and non-medical) continues to be vital in providing healthcare to the  many uninsured patients that we serve.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Community Care Clinic is to provide integrated healthcare to low-income persons in our community who do not have health insurance. Through disease prevention, continuity of care and active follow-up, we promote the health and well-being of our   community.

Patient Eligibility

 The clinic provides healthcare to low-income persons who do not have health insurance.  Please call 828-265-8591 for an appointment.
