This area is one of the fastest-growing Veteran-centric populations in the Nation, and Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network’s clinical quality performance measures have been rated some of the best. This honor pays tribute to the very hard-working staff who treat their patients with the utmost quality health care.

Life in North Carolina

North Carolina is a beautiful and rare part of the country where you can hike through the mountains or you can relax and enjoy the sunset on the beach. North Carolinians are also very proud of their Southern hospitality and their comfort foods. Residents of the “Tar Heel State” have shown themselves to be go-getters, with three U.S. Presidents having been born in the state. Many young people are flocking to North Carolina because of the big-city look with a small-town feel, not to mention the booming job market. Also, the people from North Carolina are as sweet as the tea they drink (from Mason jars of course).
