Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center announced today its newest site will be located in Woodland in the old Southern Bank Building on Main Street.  

The Board of Directors of RCCHC voted unanimously to name the new Woodland Primary Care for Dr. John H. Stanley, in honor of his more than six decades of dedicated service to the health and welfare of not only Woodland residents but all of Northeastern North Carolina.  

Dr. Stanley will join RCCHC and work alongside the staff to continue his legacy of quality, patient centered healthcare, the health center said.  

Dr. Stanley has long sought a successor so that his patients and the Woodland community could continue to have access to primary care in their hometown.  

“Working with RCCHC to open an office in Woodland is a welcome solution to making sure my patients have healthcare after I am no longer practicing,” said Stanley.

Woodland Mayor Ken Manuel also endorses RCCHC’s engagement,”There are many people in town, with whom I have personally discussed the idea of the establishment of a new health care facility and they have all expressed excitement.”  

Northampton County Health Department Director Andy Smith said, “RCCHC will bring a valuable resource in terms of providing patient care to citizens of Northampton County without them having to travel and we are proud to support their endeavor.”  

Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center is seeking capital grants to remodel the former Southern Bank building which was purchased in December of 2017.  

“This is an exciting expansion for us. We anticipate opening in early 2019 once the remodeling is completed,” said Kim Schwartz, RCCHC CEO.  

This will be the first clinic for RCCHC in Northampton County.  

Woodland Primary Care will provide primary medical, behavioral and coordination of care with access for all patients offering a sliding fee discount program based on the Federal Poverty guidelines of household income and size.  

RCCHC, an Federally Qualified Health Center since May of 2005, provides comprehensive primary care and pediatric services with locations in Ahoskie and Murfreesboro, Colerain and Creswell.  

As a designated Migrant and Community Health Center, RCCHC’s mission is to provide comprehensive care that reduces health disparities for the Roanoke-Chowan area.  Additionally RCCHC staffs The Hertford County Student Wellness Center which operates during the school year and allows students to seek behavioral health services without having to leave campus, reducing absenteeism and in turn keeping students in the classroom giving them a greater chance to successfully complete curriculum requirements.
