Access to Care

Our Priority

WATCH Patient Care-48-2.jpg

The WATCH Healthcare Program provides a medical home through access to acute and primary health care to the uninsured population residing in Wayne County.  The program has a Medical Mobile Unit and two stationary medical clinics; one within the Goldsboro Family YMCA, the other on the UNC Health Wayne campus behind the Emergency Department parking lot. These clinics are made possible through grants from The Duke Endowment, Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, the State of North Carolina, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC Foundation, the Golden LEAF Foundation, County of Wayne, and City of Goldsboro.

The Mobile Unit has a regular schedule that is followed on a monthly basis and the other 2 clinics are open on a full-time basis. Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants, along with a clinical team, provide the healthcare. 

The clinical program is overseen by Clark Gaither, MD, volunteer Medical Director. UNC Health Wayne provides all lab work at no cost to our patients. Many physicians in the community provide specialty care to patients when needed. 

Please note:  The Mobile Unit it is not Handicapped Accessible, but both the UNC Health Wayne and Goldsboro Family YMCA locations are.

Since opening WATCH has completed 200,000 patient visits and treated over 16,600 registered patients and provides in excess of $400,000 in pharmaceuticals monthly.
