by Priscilla Miller, Executive Director

This year, 2016, is the 20th anniversary of the establishment of MERCI Clinic that provides primary medical care for adults from Craven, Jones and Pamlico counties who are of lesser income, without benefit of health insurance or are ineligible for Affordable Care coverage.

Throughout the years, MERCI Clinic has evolved from the one-two afternoon walk-in, first come, first served center. “I hope I can get in.” It now provides comprehensive care with an emphasis on the chronic illnesses of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and upper respiratory complications.
