Tertiary Care Centers
UNC Health Care is a major referral center for Piedmont Health. We partner closely on the Carolina Health Net program to better manage the needs of the low-income, uninsured population of our shared service area. The program provides a medical home at Piedmont Health and offers an innovative care management model, with specialty care provided by UNC. Piedmont Health also provides facility space for operations of the UNC Student Health Action Committee (SHAC) Free Clinic.
Piedmont Health partners with ARMC for specialty care for its patients and several projects to improve care of the medically under served populations, including development of Piedmont Health’s Piedmont Health SeniorCare Program with funding from The Duke Endowment, and operations of ARMC’s Open Door Free Clinic of Alamance County.
Support from the BCBSNC Foundation has been instrumental in enabling several Piedmont Health initiatives, including the development of the Piedmont Health SeniorCare program, a strategic brand marketing project, a safety-net dental care technical assistance program, and a collaboration with UNC to embed a cardiologist in a primary care practice.
