THE OUTER BANKS HOSPITAL
The Outer Banks Hospital is a full-service, community hospital offering a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services. A joint venture between ECU Health and Chesapeake Regional Healthcare, the 87,265 square foot facility includes eighteen (18) acute care medical-surgical beds, two (2) labor and delivery/recovery/post-partum beds, one (1) level II nursery bed and three (3) operating rooms, a designated cesarean section room, outpatient and diagnostic services, and a 24-hour emergency department.
Designed especially to meet the health needs of our coastal community, whose year-round population of 35,000 swells to about 250,000 in the summer season, OBH has approval as a provider of Medicare and Medicaid programs, licensure by the Division of Facility Services, and accreditation by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, College of American Pathologists, and the American College of Radiology.
The strength of our partnership has from the beginning made our community stronger.

When we formed the Outer Banks Hospital Development Council in 2005, cancer services across our region were fragmented — and we wanted to do something about it. Our solution? Establish a single location where families in our community could turn for cancer information and support.
