See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >> https://www.brunswickcountync.gov/isaiasdebris

Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.

Click here for full details and instructions on this collection.

Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.

A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.

This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.

This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Residents who need assistance to move debris or other needs following Hurricane Isaias can contact the Brunswick County VOAD for guidance and direction to organizations or services that may be able to help: 910-253-2589

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.

 

Brunswick County Health Services is offering Tuberculin skin tests and Immunizations by appointment.

To schedule an appointment please call (910) 253-2276.

Accreditation

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 Resources

For resources and assistance available in Brunswick County, please view our Resource Assistance Quick Guide.

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.

State of the County Health Report

The State of the County Health (SOTCH) Report is produced each of the three years between CHAs to provide updates on the progress made on the health priorities and identify new health concerns.

 

Strategic Action Plan

The 2016-2020 Brunswick County Health Services Strategic Plan describes our county’s public health priorities and the plan to address them.
