Southeastern Health

Message from the Vice President for Medical Education

On behalf of Southeastern Health, the Medical Education Department welcomes you. Southeastern Health, in collaboration with Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine, is thrilled to embark on medical education.

Southeastern Health is a non-profit healthcare organization whose history dates back to 1906 with an excellent and rich history of care for Southeastern North Carolina. It has developed into a large rural healthcare organization with over 400 acute and long-term care beds, an emergency department that cares for approximately 70,000 visits annually, 40 ambulatory offices (eight of which are defined as rural health clinics as defined by Section 1861(ff)(2) of the Social Security Act), and three community fitness centers. Southeastern Health has a Magnet designation and is widely recognized for the quality of care that it delivers for the Southeastern North Carolina community.

Southeastern North Carolina is one of the most health care challenged areas in the nation with Robeson County ranked 97th out of 100 most unhealthy resident populations in the state. Additionally, the three surrounding counties Southeastern Health also serves are in the lowest quartile for the health in the state. In terms of healthy behaviors, the community ranks 100th out of 100 in North Carolina. We also care for the largest Native American population in the state, the Lumbee Tribe, which is not afforded the same federal benefits provided to other Native American populations. These community attributes provide a wide array of patient pathology upon which the medical students, interns, and residents will be trained.
