Our Services: Adult and Family Medicine Integrated Behavioral Health Dental Department Women's Health and Prenatal Care Pediatrics MedNorth Health Center receives federal grant funds awarded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services' ("DHHS") Health Resources and Services Administration ("HRSA") pursuant to Section 330 of the U.
S. Public Health Service Act ("Section 330"), 42 U.S.C. ' 254b, to provide a full spectrum of primary and preventative health care services (including essential ancillary and enabling services) to medically underserved populations, in New Hanover and surrounding counties in Southeastern North Carolina. Patients receive services regardless of the individuals or families ability to pay. Our service is designed to cover prenatal, pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric life cycles. In 1993, MedNorth (formerly New Hanover Community Health Center) was incorporated as a non-profit organization in the State of North Carolina and also received a 501(c) (3) Internal Revenue Service Classification. During the same year a grant application was submitted to the U. Public Health Service, Bureau of Primary Health Care, using the data from a needs assessment as a basis for a grant, to open a community health center. The grant application was funded. New Hanover Community Health Center saw our first patient in the spring of 1994. We have been in continuous service since that year. We are not a free clinic. Our target population is individuals and families at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. Our charges for this population are based on a sliding fee scale that takes into consideration the number of persons in the family and their total income. We provide primary health care to anyone coming to us for care. We accept almost all insurances, Medicaid and Medicare. We will handle all the paper work for you.

Families with qualifying children have less than one week left to take action in order to receive one-time grant funds to help with virtual schooling and child-care costs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Extra Credit Grant Program, created by North Carolina lawmakers last month, provides a one-time distribution of $335 to families with at least one qualifying child, and most North Carolina parents who file a 2019 state income tax return will get the payment automatically.
Families must either file their 2019 state income taxes or apply for the program by Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020.
