About Us

Chatham Hospital is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital located in Siler City, NC that is part of the UNC Health System. With a long history of providing high quality health care to the residents of Chatham and surrounding counties, Chatham Hospital has received multiple five-star ratings for patient experience from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. 

The hospital, accredited by The Joint Commission, provides surgical, medical, pediatric, maternity and emergency services. Community based outpatient services in the area of Diabetes Education, Laboratory, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Imaging, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Pulmonary Rehabilitation are also offered.

As a critical access hospital, Chatham Hospital is able to utilize beds, to not only meet the needs of acute patient care, but to also provide post-acute care to patients who no longer require acute medical care, but need additional time and care for strengthening and recovery before returning home.  

The 10-bed emergency department provides full-service around the clock care to more than 1,200 adults and children each month. UNC Health bases a helicopter for transport on the grounds of Chatham Hospital.
