Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center (RCCHC) officially broke ground earlier this year on a major medical clinic expansion in Colerain, NC. RCCHC was awarded $1 million in capital funding by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) last year to substantially enhance its Colerain Primary Care Center.
Colerain Primary Care, located at 109 W River Street in Colerain, is undergoing an expansion that will add 3,376 square feet and include an in-house pharmacy, four additional exam rooms, expand the community nutrition site, and a designated space for behavioral health and nutrition/patient education. The project is certain to better address the needs of the area population and enhance the care Colerain Primary Care is already providing area citizens.
Colerain Primary Care will remain open during the improvements. The clinic is currently open Monday-Friday (Monday 8:00am-7:00pm, Tuesday 8:00am-5:00pm, Wednesday 8:00am-7:00pm, Thursday 8:00am-5:00pm, Friday 8:00am-4:00pm). Colerain Primary Care is closed on Saturdays and Sundays, but RCCHC operates on Saturday at Ahoskie Comprehensive Care from 8:00am-12:00 noon for all patients.
Remember, If you work and need medical attention after 5 p.m., Colerain Primary Care in Colerain is now open on Monday and Wednesday evenings until 7 p.m.
This is a great service for working families or those with a busy schedule.
