What Services are Changing?

Beginning July 1, 2017, the health department will no longer provide primary care such as sick care, work physicals, or treatment for chronic disease for adults 21 years of age and older.  If you are 21 years of age and received these services from Chatham County Public Health Department within the past 3 years, we can help you with referrals to another provider and transferring your medical records.

Please talk with a staff member during your clinic visit if you have questions. 

If you would like to speak with someone by telephone, please call Debbie Garrett or Zach Deaton at 919-742-5641.
