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 well-being of the patients they served. Collectively, these medical practices have provided decades 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.
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 Wake Forest Baptist Health (now Atrium) 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 Gate City Blvd. and Eugene Street. In addition, the Greensboro Pharmacy opened and began providing prescription medications. HealthServe Northeast opened in 1998 at 1439 East Cone Boulevard. Due to funding both HealthServe offices and the pharmacy have closed.
Family Medicine at Eugene currently occupies the space on the corner of Gate City Blvd., and Eugene Street adjacent to the Greensboro Urban Ministry providing integrated healthcare.
The practice formerly known as High Point Adult Health was a collaborative effort between Guilford County and High Point Regional Health System, with an aim to meet the needs of the uninsured and underinsured in the City of High Point, NC. This practice merged with our pediatric location and is now Family Medicine at Elm.

New Sites and Collaborations (these sites were made possible by NAP (New Access Point) funds from HRSA – Health Resources and Services Administration)

In 2017, the organization opened Family Medicine at Brentwood in High Point, NC; a collaboration with Triad Adult and Pediatric Medicine and Guilford Child Development.
In November 2021, TAPM purchased its first building – Family Medicine at Elm located at 606 N. Elm St. in High Point. Soon after, TAPM acquired another building and will be opening a clinic at 300 W. Northwood St. in Greensboro in the fall of 2022.
