Brunswick County Health Services
Welcome to Brunswick County Health Services! We offer a variety of health services and programs for children and adults, including many services with income-based sliding scale fees for the uninsured (cash, checks, and most major health insurance plans are also accepted). We also provide health education and community outreach services.
During the coronavirus pandemic, we have new procedures to protect our patients and staff from potential exposure to COVID-19.
We are not seeing sick and well visits at the same time.
- Please return to your vehicle and call 910-253-2276 to register for your appointment. After registration, the nurse may ask you questions by phone. When the phone interview is complete, a staff member will then escort to the clinic area.
- Prior to entering the building, you will need to wash your hands, answer screening questions, and have your temperature checked.
- Please be aware that during this time only the patient will be allowed in the building. We apologize that we are unable to allow partners or other family members in the clinic. Pediatric patients may be escorted by only one parent. All other family members will need to wait in the car or outside.
- At the end of your appointment, you will go directly to your vehicle.
- For a follow-up appointment, call 910-253-2276.
Following state recommendation, Brunswick County Health Services is NOT able to offer tuberculin skin testing. At this time all routine tuberculin skin testing is being deferred.

- Staff with direct inmate contact upon employment
- Inmates in the custody of the Department of Corrections
- Staff of licensed nursing care homes upon employment
- Residents upon admission to licensed nursing homes or adult care homes
- Staff in adult day care centers providing care to persons with HIV/AIDS upon employment
Please contact Brunswick County Health Services at 910-253-2250 if you have any questions or concerns.
What is Public Health?
To learn more about our programs and services, please view our Brunswick County Health Services brochure.
The North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation program reviews each health department based on a set of minimal standards (147 activities) that must be provided to ensure the protection of the health of the public and to provide essential services. BCHS has been accredited since 2008 with the most recent reaccreditation occurring in 2017. Staff is currently preparing for the next assessment in the spring of 2021.
Community Health Assessment
The Community Health Assessment (CHA) is conducted by BCHS every four years to determine the community’s needs and develop programs to address health priorities. Community Health Opinion Surveys are disseminated to residents, and the results are analyzed and compared to secondary data from the State Center for Health Statistics.
