Scotland Health Care System




Scotland Health Care System in Laurinburg, North Carolina is proud to be the community's health care system. We are a community owned and controlled not-for-profit organization that includes Scotland Memorial Hospital, Scotland Physicians Network with nine medical practices, Scotland Regional Hospice (formerly Hospice of Scotland County), Scotland Family Counseling Center, and Scotland Memorial Foundation.

Here at Scotland Health Care System, we understand that healthcare is evolving. Advances in medicine and strides in technology are providing local communities access to better healthcare. It is our desire to provide patients the best care possible. Our staff will be here to help patients and their loved ones when the need arises.

Our Beliefs About Our Future:

  • To successfully accomplish our Mission and Vision our transformation must include creative and innovative changes in what we do and how we do it.
  • We must change from a hospital and provider-centric model to a patient-centered, ambulatory model.
  • There will be a continued focus on moving the industry to an increasingly ambulatory based delivery model focused on the health of the individual patient and the overall health of the population we serve.
  • New payment models will incent us to better coordinate our patient’s care along the continuum of services. This includes both how our patients are treated and how their treatment information flows.
  • New partners, arrangements, and competitors will emerge for us as a result of the new treatment and payment models. We will be strategically advantaged by coordinating access to a comprehensive continuum of care.
  • Patients and their families will behave more like Consumers, expecting more Value, Convenience, and Access, in addition to caring and compassionate Service.
  • Limited opportunities to pursue Smart Growth will necessitate us focusing our strategic efforts and resource allocation decisions.
