Service Area


Strategic Priority Area

The uninsured rate in the Obici Healthcare Foundation’s service area ranges from 14.4% in Suffolk to 25% in Gates County, NC. The uninsured and underinsured often go without medical care or end up using the emergency room for the care they need. Individuals need medical homes where they have adequate access to primary and routine care, diagnostic services, medication, health education and resource referrals.

Based on community input and the changing healthcare environment, the Foundation will give priority to proposals that best provide access to a medical home and coordinated access to services in these areas:

  • Primary medical care
  • Mental health services
  • Maternal and child health services
  • Dental care
  • Medications
  • Nutritional education
  • Medically necessary transportation
  • Nutritious food distribution

Grantees providing these resources to individuals are encouraged to work to assure individuals have a primary care provider/medical home as part of their program design.
