The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
The slogan for this walk-in medical clinic is “We see everyone for almost everything.” It is also the only medical facility on the Outer Banks that takes appointments on weekends. And they really do treat just about anything, from well-women check-ups to skin cancer screenings to fixing broken bones. Same for vacation mishaps, whether its sunburn, jellyfish stings, snake bites, fish-hook removal, watersports injuries, or even a scary virus, Urgent Care has you covered. The medical practitioners even offer a choice of wound closure: stitches, staples or glue. An X Ray and lab are on site, and most health insurance is accepted. The Outer Banks Hospital is located across the street, in case things turn out to worse than it initially appeared. Appointments are encouraged for routine family and wellness care at the clinic.
