Our History

Your Community Health Center. Today – in our 44th year of service – we’re Piedmont Health. Our focus is on giving our community access to quality healthcare. To us, healthy citizens make for a healthy community. That’s our mission. Piedmont Health was founded in 1970 by a group of health care professionals at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and local community members concerned with access to primary healthcare in the community. Known then as Orange-Chatham Comprehensive Health Services, Inc. (OCCHS), the agency was organized to provide comprehensive healthcare services and education to all in the community, with special emphasis on those who weren’t receiving proper healthcare and who lacked access to services. For over 44 years, we have been committed to helping change the lives of everyone in our communities, whether that’s through our medical services, dental care, on-site pharmacy, nutrition counseling or disease management. With eight convenient locations, serving 14 counties in the Piedmont region, the health of you and your family is our top priority. Our designated service areas are: Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Lee, Orange, Person, and Randolph counties. We are your healthcare home.
