"I was sick and you cared for me."
We are honored to serve the people of our community. If you qualify for care, we will be your primary care providers. That means you don't have to wait until you are sick to come visit us! We'll do your regular checkups and help treat you for minor illnesses and injuries. If we can't treat you, we'll help connect you with other services in the community.
What we do
Our volunteer health providers can:
- Diagnose and treat a wide variety of acute and chronic medical problems
- Help you obtain low-cost or free prescriptions medications
- Provide screenings and preventative care, to keep you healthy
- Work with other services to get you additional care if needed
SCCC is blessed that Duke LifePoint, the parent partner of Swain Community Hospital, has agreed to work with SCCC patients to provide essential lab services on a charity care basis.
In addition, Duke LifePoint has also agreed to provide charity care for essential specialist referrals for SCCC patients, for which we are extremely grateful.
SCCC also works closely with and makes referrals to other local health organizations such as:
- Swain County Health Department
- Appalachian Community Services
- Swain Family Care
- Vecinos, Inc. Farmworker Health Program
- Duke LifePoint/Swain Community Hospital specialist referrals including gastroenterology, orthopedics, surgery, urology, women’s health, and wound care
- Asheville Cardiology, for patients who have quit smoking
- Sylva Good Samaritan Patient Assistance program
- NC Medassist
We make sure you get the care you need.
