Mission Statement

The mission of the Cherokee County Health Department is to assess, address, and assure the public health needs of Cherokee County citizens.


NCCARE360 is the first statewide network that unites health care and human services organizations with a shared technology that enables a coordinated, community-oriented, person-centered approach for delivering care in North Carolina. NCCARE360 helps providers electronically connect those with identified needs to community resources and allow for feedback and follow up. This solution ensures accountability for services delivered, provides a “no wrong door” approach, closes the loop on every referral made, and reports outcomes of that connection. NCCARE360 is available in all 100 counties across North Carolina. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE
