DMH brings the best medical care into the most convenient, comfortable and lowest cost place of service – our patient’s home or business environment. Our pioneering practice has transformed the “old-fashioned house call” into a 21st-century phenomenon, by providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art care 7 days a week, as well asurgent care with same-day or next-day appointments. We also have a number of subspecialists in our group who provide our primary care clinicians with consultations in palliative care, infectious disease, endocrinology, rheumatology, pulmonary and intensive care medicine, podiatry, wound care.
Thanks to our patient-centered philosophy of care, sophisticated technology, multi-dimensional delivery system, and close partnership with key resources in the communities we serve, we are able to perform more tests and procedures in our patient’s home or place of business than most primary care physicians perform in their office. And our service is surprisingly affordable because we contract with every insurance company, and are “in network” with nearly every plan. We also file all the paperwork for our patients.
We are the “gold standard” physician home visit practice in the country. Two years ago we were honored to be 1 of only 16 practices nationwide selected to participate in Medicare’s groundbreaking Independence At Home Demonstration (IAH) Demonstration, based on our practice’s reputation for clinical excellence and the sophistication of our electronic medical records and cloud-based practice management systems. Among the 16 participating practices, DMHC has the most successful in reducing unnecessary expenditures on emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and in reducing 30-day hospital readmissions. We were also the only practice to succeed in 6 out of 6 of the Demonstration’s demanding quality of care measures.
The historic and charming town of Clayton is conveniently located in Johnston County, approximately 20 miles southeast of Raleigh and an ideal for commuting back and forth. For families searching for a small, close-knit community to raise children with great schools and active church life, Clayton is a wonderful choice. Or maybe your life's dream is to become a small-business owner -- the downtown area continues to thrive and draw shoppers from surrounding communities.
Clayton Visual Arts is the main visual arts programming body in Clayton. A nonprofit organization of volunteers, the group coordinates a monthly rotating art exhibit in The Clayton Center gallery, an annual exhibition featuring Clayton High School students, Artalacarte Art Walk and Historic Homes Tour, the annual Art Faire juried competition, and a juried poster contest every two years. Throughout the Town of Clayton, visitors will find public art installations to enjoy. Some examples include the work of the mural at the Public Library and Clayton Town Hall.

Clayton Farm and Community Market opened April 2009 to a crowd of supporters. Since then, it has grown and is always looking for new locally produced food vendors. Our vendors come from within 100 miles of Clayton, and most of the food is produced within 50 miles. Currently, in our 8th year, our regular season goes from the first weekend in April until the last weekend in October from 9 am to 1 pm. We also participate in several events throughout the year in coordination with other organizations in town. We continue a winter season opening alternating Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm. We also have two-holiday markets during the winter season.
