The mission of Greene County Health Care is “to ensure the availability of quality health care to all residents of Greene, Pitt and Pamlico Counties and the surrounding rural area with an emphasis on providing health services to the underserved.”

Greene County Health Care, Inc. (GCHC) is a federally qualified health center that has been providing primary health care in eastern North Carolina for 40 years. We have grown from a single medical care site in Walstonburg in 1972 to a large organization with 7 service delivery locations in two counties. Our current delivery system includes 4 primary medical care sites, 2 dental care sites, and a school based health clinic.

We ensure access to affordable prescriptions through the provision of 340b pharmacy services via contract with a pharmacy located across the street from our Snow Hill sites and in the Bernstein CHC in Greenville. Our emphasis on providing access to care for underserved populations is enhanced by three outreach provider teams who visit several hundred farmworker camps in seven counties to provide care. Our corporate service area covers all of Greene and Pitt counties, as well as the migrant and seasonal farmworker populations of seven adjacent counties. Our target population includes all farmworkers in the service area and all medically underserved residents.

For calendar year 2011, our medical, dental and mental health providers served 30,822 patients with 35,560 medical, 12,624 dental and 5,195 mental health encounters. Other staff provided 50,695 enabling encounters for a total of 104,800 encounters for the year.
Slightly over half of our patients (60%) are migrant and seasonal farmworkers, primarily from Mexico. The majority of GCHC patients are uninsured (83.6%), with 7.3% Medicaid, 6.5% private, and 2.6% Medicare. Our patient population is 68% Latino, 18% African American, and 12% white. The vast majority of our patients report incomes at or below 100% of the Federal Poverty Level. Nearly one third of our patients are under age 20.

Services routinely provided include preventive and acute medical care, comprehensive dental services, management of chronic conditions for prenatal, pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients, and diagnostic laboratory and radiology services. In recognition that health is more than the absence of disease, Marriage and Family Therapy students from East Carolina University provide medical family therapy integrated care services and traditional counseling services. We augment this care with extensive case management, health education, transportation, interpretation, and other enabling services.

Greene County Health Care, Inc. is also a FTCA (Federal Tort Claims Act) Deemed Facility.

Please note: This notice is only for FTCA deemed health centers:

Recently, despite the many ways in which the federal status of Section 330 Health Center Program grantees is advertised or otherwise made known to the public, concerns have been raised that health centers can do more to make known their related federal status. Accordingly, HRSA encourages FTCA deemed Section 330 health centers to add the following information to your health centers' and subrecipients' website homepage and in other appropriate locations:

This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).

In addition, if the health center is asked who your insurance carrier is for purposes of filing medical malpractice claims, you should respond -- in writing whenever possible -- by stating that they and many/all of their providers are deemed federal employees, with resultant coverage under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) for actions within the scope of deemed employment, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n). Accordingly, claims or notice of medical malpractice claims should be submitted by a claimant to the Office of General Counsel at the address below. Further, the health center should retain a copy of this correspondence in their office files, rather than in patient medical records.

When you click on the “My Page” tab at the top of this Admin home page, you will be taken to an ADMINISTRATIVE VERSION of your home page. This means that you will notice buttons and menu options that are available here, but are not visible on your public page.

The main purpose of the “My Page” feature is to let you see what your health center's page looks like before you post it as a public page, so that if you see anything you would like to change, you can do so immediately.

The other key function of “My Page”, is to allow you to place and organize all of the materials you have created in the Admin on to your public page in an appealing order. This is the final step that you have to take to create your public page, so please read on and follow the full instructions here.
  1. When you are in “My Page”, scroll to the bottom and you will see a header, toward the left, that says “Add Category”. Next to that is a scroll menu and a button that says “Add”. Click on the scroll menu.
    1. The scroll menu will bring up every element that you have identified as “Active” when you added it in the Admin. Remember, an item must be tagged as “active” in order for you to be able to post it.

      NOTE: Materials classified as “Active” in the Admin, do not automatically appear on your profile page. You have to follow these steps to have post “active” material to the public profile page.
  2. Select a category that you would like to place on your profile page and then press “Add”.
    1. You will see it appear beneath, along with a set of 5 buttons. These buttons will allow you to organize the placement of your materials on the profile page, by category type. 
  3. Continue to “Add” all of the categories that you would like to showcase on your profile page. 
    1. In the “My Page” view, the individual items associated with each category will be listed under the category header. Up to three items will appear in this view, with the order in which they appear determined by the date of upload, and the most recently uploaded item appearing first. To change this order, you may go back to the “Admin” and alter the dates.
  4. Once you have completed the process of adding the categories, you can determine their placement on the page, by using the buttons beneath each category header. 
    1. Press the > button to move the category to the right.
    2. Press the <button to move the category to the left.
    3. Press the ^ button to move the category up a row.
    4. Press the v button to move the category down a row.
    5. Press the X button to remove the category from view.
      1. If you do remove or “X” a category, you will see that it has returned to the menu, so that you may chose to add it at a later time 
  5. Categories will remain in the order you’ve chosen unless or until you repeat the process for organizing the material and re-order your categories. NOTE: You may change the order/add/delete categories as many times as you like.
    1. While there is no limit to the number of categories that you may place on any one line of your profile, it is recommended that you place no more than three on one line to ensure that all of your categories are clearly visible.
    2. If you have created sub-categories, up to three sub-category headers (identified by the subcategory folder icon) will appear below the category name, listed by rank order. The remaining sub-categories or individual items can be viewed by clicking the “see more” link.

  6. You can return to the admin by clicking on the link “Admin Home” link, or if you want to explore the site, you can simply click on any of the sections from the main navigation.
