About North Central Family Medical 

North Central Family Medicine, was charted in 1989 in Rock Hill, SC as a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. The organization received federal funding as a community health center in September 1991. The current CEO, Ernest Brown, was hired by the Board of Directors on February 3, 1992, to start-up the new health center. The initial office was set up in the York County Health Department while space was rented and renovated in back of the old West End Elementary School on South Cherry Road. Working as a team, the CEO and Board of Directors went to work recruiting staff, purchasing furniture and equipment, and preparing to see its first patient on June 1, 1992, just four months after hiring the CEO.

North Central quickly out grew the facility on South Cherry Road. A federal capital improvement grant was awarded in 1999. In June 2001, North Central moved into its new facility at 1131 Saluda Street. Full comprehensive primary medical care is being provided to approximately 10,000 residents, with more than 30,000 patient visits annually, in three locations in York, Chester, and Lancaster Counties. Service is provided to all residents regardless of their ability to pay, utilizing a sliding fee scale that is updated each year by the Bureau of Primary Health Care.

Full pharmacy services are available at the main site in Rock Hill and at the Chester location. Most insurances are accepted including Medicaid and Medicare. A new facility is currently under construction at 1140 Saluda Street that will house the Women’s / Adolescent Health and Pediatric Programs. Completion of the new facility is expected by Spring of 2018.
