About Us:

It is our mission to offer excellent quality primary care and health education to every individual in our community while providing this care in a culturally sensitive, professional and compassionate manner with special emphasis on reaching the underserved.

Rural Health Group, Inc. is a non-profit, community health center dedicated to providing primary medical care, dental care, and other health-related services to our region’s underserved. Founded in 1974, Rural Health Group, Inc. grew out of a community collaboration of concerned citizens to provide low-cost and free health care services to people living in Northeastern North Carolina. Rural Health Group, Inc. currently operates in nine (9) locations: Jackson, Littleton (Lake Gaston), Henderson, Hollister (Twin County), Norlina, Rich Square, Roanoke Rapids, Scotland Neck and Whitakers.

As the community’s only safety net clinic, our responsibility to the growing number of uninsured in our community is immense. We are the insurance plan for the region’s poor.

No one is ever refused service because of inability to pay (“inability to pay” is explicitly defined as those patients with annual household income of 200% and below the federal poverty level).

All of our services are offered on a sliding fee scale based upon income and family size.

Over 23,000 people have received care at Rural Health Group, Inc.

Our board of directors is comprised of over 80% active patients of the health center. In addition to patients, we have expertise on our board from financial planners, attorneys, health care providers and administrators. We have a well-rounded, experienced board dedicated to increasing access to care while managing a fiscally sound organization. The board directs senior management that all decisions must undergo thorough business modeling, cost-benefit analysis and program development.

Our mission drives the management and staff of Rural Health Group, Inc. to identify health needs in the community, develop programs to meet those needs and provide superior quality services for our patients. As a community-founded, -funded and -focused organization we are committed to offering a comprehensive package of services to not only meet the standards of care in the community, but exceed those standards.
