The Burke Street Medicine Team (BSMT) is a voluntary multidisciplinary team that delivers Medical care to persons living unsheltered, also known as rough sleepers/homeless.
The fundamental approach behind the Street Medicine team is taking healthcare beyond the four walls it typically exists within. This includes health and social services developed specifically to address the unique needs and circumstances of the homeless Population. This service is delivered directly to them in their own environment, a true example of meeting People where they currently are.
Through this approach we work to Reduce and eliminate Access to Healthcare barriers, Strengthen Community partnerships, and develop a stronger rapport with the community we serve.
Membership of the Burke Street Medicine Team consists of:
Burke County Health Department
Morganton Public Safety
Burke United Christian Ministries
