Our History

Our-HistoryThe Community Care Clinic of Dare (CCCD) was founded in 2005 by a partnership of the Albemarle Hospital Foundation, the Dare County Department of Public Health, and the Outer Banks Hospital.

The establishment of the Community Care Clinic of Dare represented a grassroots response to the needs of the uninsured and underinsured in our community.

The Clinic first opened its doors in Kitty Hawk in May 2005, and our Buxton (now Frisco) location in September of that year. We opened in Manteo in December 2006. In May 2011, the Kitty Hawk and Manteo clinics consolidated, and a new and larger CCCD location was opened in Nags Head at 2808 S. Croatan Hwy, Suite A. In July 2013, we re-located into our existing facility at 425 Health Center Dr., further improving our ability to serve our patients. Many individuals and organizations have devoted countless hours and numerous financial and material resources to the Clinic since its creation. The Clinic is always in need of additional medical and non-medical volunteers.
