Becoming UNC Health Southeastern

For 65 years, Southeastern Health has been a vital community partner ensuring that our friends, neighbors and family in southeastern North Carolina have access to high-quality, compassionate healthcare.

In October, we shared our plans to partner with UNC Health through an initial, 10-year comprehensive Management Services Agreement (MSA) that would result in Southeastern Health becoming the newest member of the UNC Health family. We’re excited to share that the Southeastern Health Board of Trustees has approved and signed the comprehensive MSA with UNC Health. With the MSA now finalized, we are officially part of the UNC Health family.

This exciting milestone reflects the hard work of our Board, leadership team, physicians, employees and community members to put us in a place to be taking this important step forward together. Aligning with North Carolina’s leading public academic health system will allow Southeastern Health to become an even stronger regional healthcare leader, providing enhanced opportunities to recruit and retain additional highly-skilled physicians and other caregivers to the area, maintain and grow the services we offer today while keeping care local, and positively impacting the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve.
