The Department of Health and Human Services manages the delivery of health- and human-related services for all North Carolinians, especially our most vulnerable people – children, elderly, disabled and low-income families. The Department works closely with health care professionals, community leaders and advocacy groups; local, state and federal entities; and many other stakeholders to make this happen.
The Department is divided into 33 divisions and offices. NCDHHS divisions and offices fall under six broad service areas - Health; Opportunity and Well-Being; Medicaid; Operational Excellence; Policy and Communications; and Health Equity.
NCDHHS also oversees 14 facilities: developmental centers, neuro-medical treatment centers, psychiatric hospitals, alcohol and drug abuse treatment centers, and two residential programs for children.
