Careteam+ has been the leading provider of medical care for those living with HIV since 1994. Today our care includes others with chronic health issues: diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity and Hepatitis. At Careteam+, your good health is just as important to us as it is to you.
You are the reason for our day not an interruption of it.
Founded in 1993, Careteam+ today provides medical and support services for people living with chronic health issues. Through the Ryan White Care Act in 1994, Careteam received its first federal grant to provide medical, treatment and social support services to uninsured clients living with HIV in Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties. For the next 20 years, Careteam has been the primary source of care and services for people living with HIV whom are medically uninsured.
Staff at Careteam has always strived to provide compassionate care, making sure each client is treated with respect and dignity. Through the years with the advances in medicine, Careteam has seen its patients’ health improve.
Many of our patients regained their health, stopped receiving disability and returned to the workforce. HIV is no longer viewed as a terminal disease, but now is viewed as a chronic disease that can be controlled with medication. HIV patients have weakened immune systems and often have chronic health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity– just like many others.
In response to our patient requests and to ensure continuity of care for those clients that became insured through the workplace, Careteam opened its own medical offices in 2010 to accept insured clients. Appreciating the high level of care and attention to detail they were receiving, clients began asking repeatedly to receive ALL of their medical care with Careteam. In response to those requests, Careteam began providing primary health care to our patients in 2013.
Due to patient and family requests, in 2014 Careteam also began providing primary health care to patient’s families and the community as well. It was then Careteam starting using the name Careteam+ to illustrate the new level of healthcare services available to the community.
Twenty years of experience and treatment awareness makes Careteam uniquely qualified to open its doors to others living with chronic health issues. Today, Careteam+ offers Chronic Disease Management to anyone living with chronic conditions, including: Arthritis, Asthma, Diabetes, Pre Diabetes, Infectious Diseases (HIV and Hepatitis), Heart Disease (High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol) Obesity/ Overweight , and help to stop smoking.
