Since 1979, Benson Area Medical Center (BAMC), a community-owned nonprofit primary health care center, has served residents of Johnston, Harnett and Sampson Counties. BAMC was formed as a result of a grassroots community movement to address the shortage of physicians in southern Johnston County.
We currently have 40 full- and part-time employees, including four full-time family practice physicians, three full-time physician assistants, and a clinical pharmacist. We provide primary care, lab, x-ray, and clinical pharmacy services on site. BAMC serves over 11,000 patients and provides over 31,000 patient visits each year.
BAMC occupies a 15,000 square foot facility located at 3333 NC Hwy 242 N in Benson, NC. This facility was purchased and renovated in 2002 with a loan and a grant from the USDA-Rural Development. With completion of an expansion project in early 2011, we operate in 12,700 square feet of finished space with an additional 2,300 square feet of unfinished space at the back of the facility.
