Carrboro Community Health Center

"What we believe is kind of the foundation of this work is relationships, so you go meet your neighbors, you talk to them, you talk to them again, you talk to them again..."

- Brian Toomey

Carrboro Community Health Center, part of Piedmont Health, was first known as Orange-Chatham Comprehensive Health Services, a program started in 1970 as a joint venture of the UNC Division of Health Affairs and a local community action plan. The health center and others in the Piedmont Health system were created to provide comprehensive healthcare services and education to the community, especially those who lacked access to quality healthcare services.
