The Hatteras Village Medical Center closed its doors without warning Monday.

“Our decision comes after much thought and consideration,” according to statement published Tuesday in the Island Free Press. “We are thankful for the opportunity to have provided health care for the community and it’s visitors for the past five years.”

The clinic said it will be able to transfer records to other providers with a signed release on file through Nov. 8.


The office will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday, according to the statement, or call (252) 986-2756 for assistance.

    I thought that they legally had to give 30 days notice to the patients.

    Are there any more medical offices? Or 911’s to answer calls?

    No worries Roy. Dare County EMS functions as usual from it’s stations in Frisco and Rodanthe and the medical facility in Avon is still open weekdays. Sorry to see the Hatteras Medical Center close as they are good people and a LOT easier to deal with than the paperwork/computer glitches at a Vidant or Sentara facility.

    My husband works at Sentra hospital in Elizabeth City and they have just come on line with a new program. Patience is important
