For over 50 years we have made more than a difference.

Since we first began serving our community in 1962 in the old St. Lukes Hospital, we’ve grown right along with our region. Over the years we’ve added new beds and new technology. Opening as the "ultra modern" 100 bed Craven County Hospital in 1963, the 21st Century CarolinaEast Health System is a 350 bed, multi-facility health care provider to the five county Coastal Carolina Region. Each year, we are privileged to have over 360,000 opportunities to touch the lives of our neighbors.

And, while we may offer the same level of care that is usually found at larger medical centers in much larger cities, we have taken special care over the years to maintain our community feel.  For over 50 years, the families of coastal North Carolina have trusted us to take care of their most precious commodity - their good health. We look forward to the next five decades and beyond...building on our history of caring and our tradition of progress.
