The SEHCNC Story
Southeastern Healthcare of NC began in 1991 as a small adult day health facility serving 12 participants. Responding to the growing needs among seniors and disabled adults, Southeastern expanded its service offerings to include home health, outpatient therapy, mental health homes, psychosocial rehabilitation, peer support, community health services, overnight respite, health education, and wellness, in addition to the adult day health program. Most recently, Southeastern partnered with the NC Department of Health & Human Services to provide critically needed services to 23 NC counties located in Medicaid regions 2 and 4 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Between 2020 and 2022, Southeastern’s teams of Community Health Workers served over 1.1 million North Carolinians during the pandemic with medical, social support, and resource services. Our well-trained multidisciplinary team of professionals has helped bring a sense of peace and security to countless families through the care and support offered in each of our programs.
Today, Southeastern Healthcare has evolved into a leader among home and community care service providers. We have developed an integrated approach in our delivery of services to ensure that the appropriate community-based or in-home services are available to all program participants. We work directly with healthcare providers, family members, and community partners to provide continuity in care and service delivery.
Southeastern is committed to providing quality services and to continue developing best practices that can be replicated by other service providers. We have been providing aging and disabled adult services for more than 30 years.
Southeastern is certified by the NC Division of Aging and Adult Services and is accredited by the Commission Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
