The Burke County Health Department offers a Maternity Clinic to assure the availability of adequate prenatal care to Burke County residents who are financially unable to obtain care in the private sector. This care includes patients who do not have private insurance or who are eligible for Medicaid. We want to give you high quality care from your first trimester to your fourth trimester (postpartum period).
We have an experienced staff of friendly nurses along with a local OB/GYN. Screenings for our Maternity Clinic are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Patients are seen regularly on Mondays and Thursdays. Deliveries are at UNC Health Blue Ridge– Morganton Campus (formerly Grace Hospital) unless a higher level of care is needed for the pregnant mother and/or baby.
By providing professional, compassionate care in the Maternity Clinic, the public health nurses work hard to assure a healthy pregnancy for the expectant mother and her unborn child and they strive to make this special time rewarding..
