Harnett Health Coats Medical is also the educational site for the Family Medicine Residency Program. This Program is in partnership with the Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine and is part of a physician’s continued education after graduation from medical school.

“Having these additional physicians in the Harnett Health Coats Medical clinic has increased capacity and scope of services, meaning that patients can get quality care faster and without an appointment” says Cory Hess, Harnett Health’s President.  

Walk-ins are welcome any time during scheduled hours. The staff suggests, however, that walk-in patients might want to call ahead to be sure they don’t have to wait while another patient is being helped. The number is (910) 897-6423.
