GREENVILLE, NC – Beginning this week, the Tarboro Clinic will be affiliated with Vidant Medical Group, a multi-specialty physician and provider group that is part of Vidant Health, and will be called Vidant Multispecialty Clinic – Tarboro. Vidant Health is a network of interconnected physician practices, more than 11,000 employees, 10 hospitals, home health and hospice programs and wellness facilities.

The Tarboro Clinic was founded in 1928 and is the oldest multispecialty group in North Carolina. Today the clinic has 18 full-time and two part-time providers. The clinic offers family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, pulmonary, general surgery and immediate care.

“Our patients will be coming to the same location and seeing the same providers and staff they are used to seeing,” said Dr. Karen Coward, medical director of the clinic. “By joining forces with Vidant Health, it ensures that will be the case now and in the future. Being committed to finding a consistent and effective way to offer and deliver quality health care to everyone is a challenge that could not have been conceptualized decades ago, but now is possible with a systems approach led by Vidant Health.”

With a staff of 92 employees, the multispecialty clinic offers a full-service lab, imaging services, a sleep lab and a free-standing endoscopy center. Additional services include pulmonary function testing, bone density tests, EKGs, exercise stress tests, echocardiography, Lexiscan and Dobutamine Cardiolite tests, and multi-gated acquisition scans.

“We are excited to add such a quality practice to our network of physicians and providers,” said Travis Douglass, executive vice president and director of Vidant Medical Group. “We look forward to working together to provide more access to care in our region.”

All Vidant Health entities are active partners in their communities' well-being, providing access to quality health services for everyone through a complete system of care. Vidant Health highlights the passion for doing good in communities, not just doing business. As one of the largest employers in eastern North Carolina, Vidant Health supports communities economically as well as medically.
