In November 2010, six medical practices in Guilford County merged to become Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine, Inc. Over the years each of these practices has worked to improve the health and wellbeing of the patients they served. Collectively, these medical practices have provided 74 years of quality service to the community. Formerly these practices were known as: Guilford Child Health, Inc., HealthServe Community Health Clinic and High Point Adult Health.
In Sept. 13, 2013, Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine, Inc. received notification it had been designated as a Fully-Funded, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with a two-year grant award. To clarify the names of its practices so patients would understand where they could obtain superior care, TAPM renamed its existing practices:
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine--Pediatrics at Wendover (formerly Guilford Child Health)
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine--Pediatrics at Meadowview (formerly Guilford Child Health at Spring Valley)
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine--Family Medicine at Eugene (located at the former HealthServe location)
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine-Interactive Resource Center medical practice (this site is no longer affiliated with TAPM)
In High Point:
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine--Family Medicine at Commerce (formally Guilford Child Health High Point and High Point Adult Health)
In 2014, the organization opened another practice in Rockingham county:
Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine--Clara F. Gunn
In 2015 the organization opened Family Medicine at Market Street, a collaboration with Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine and Piedmont Health Services and Sickle Cell Agency.
In 2016, the organization opened Family Medicine at Arlington Street, a collaboration with Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine and Guilford Child Development.
The practices formerly known as Guilford Child Health, Inc. were established in 1997 to serve as providers of primary and specialty healthcare services for children in Guilford County. Prior to that date, the Guilford County Department of Public Health was the primary provider for mandated public health services. Eventually, the demand for health services became so large that Guilford County found that it could not continue to meet the growing needs of the community. The answer to the challenge was for County Commissioners, Board of Health members, Moses Cone Health System (now Cone Health) and High Point Regional Health System to join together to create Guilford Child Health, Inc.
The practice formerly known as HealthServe Community Health Clinic was established in the late 1980s by a physician and nurse (husband and wife team) to provide basic medical care services to those individuals staying at Greensboro Urban Ministry’s Pathways Shelter. With financial support from Leadership Greensboro a storefront clinic was opened in 1989 at 414 Battleground Avenue and the clinic provided care to 1,700 individuals that first year. In 1993, the organization was incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit and a new permanent facility was built at the corner of Lee and Eugene Streets. In addition, the Greensboro Pharmacy opened and began providing prescription medications. HealthServe Northeast opened in 1998 at 1439 East Cone Boulevard. Due to lack of funding HealthServe closed in August of 2013.
The practice formerly known as High Point Adult Health was established in 2002, as a collaborative effort between Guilford County and High Point Regional Health System to meet the needs of the uninsured and underinsured in the City of High Point.
