EBCI Public Health & Human Services Division

Public Health & Human Services for the Cherokee Communities in
Western North Carolina

Welcome! We invite you to learn about the variety of programs within Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) Public Health & Human Services. Our programs are designed to improve individual – and community – quality of life.

The Beloved Women's and Children's Health and Wellness Center is named to honor The Beloved Women, who are acclaimed for their service to the tribe.

Many of our services are only for enrolled members of the EBCI and other federally-recognized Indian tribes.

Some programs operate within the child care and school systems and are open to all children. Others, such as Tsali Care Nursing Facility, are open to anyone in need.

In addition to treatment programs, we are very invested in educating our community in prevention of unnecessary illness and disability. We make sure that individuals are aware of all the services available to them. Our programs work hand-in-hand with one another, ensuring continuity of care for individuals.

We are very interested in your well-being. Please call on us for assistance.

Results of the 2013 Tribal Health Assessment Survey are now available. Learn our biggest community concerns, our quality of life positives and struggles, and more. Thank you to everyone who helped with this project.
