Outer Banks Health has announced plans to expand the building that houses Outer Banks Family Medicine – Manteo on Roanoke Island.

In an Outer Banks Health press release issued Monday, March 20, 2023, it was stated that the Outer Banks Health Board of Directors approved $5 million in support of the project at its meeting held February 24.

“Outer Banks Health recently closed on the purchase of the property formerly owned by Dr. Walter and Barbara Holton of Manteo,” stated the release. “A site plan that includes improvements to the current structure and a 2600 square foot addition will soon go through the Dare County planning process in preparation for construction. Once completed, the 6300 square foot building will have capacity to grow along with the future needs of the community.”
