Pitt County, North Carolina is located on the U.S. Atlantic seaboard approximately midway between
Boston, Massachusetts and Miami, Florida and within a day's drive of over one-half the nation's
population. Many of the principal U.S. industrial markets such as Boston, New York, Pittsburgh,
Chicago, Atlanta, Memphis, and Miami are within a two day's drive by truck. Additionally, the Pitt
County/Greenville area offers an advantageous location for exporters/importers of either bulk or
containerized freight, being equidistant from the three east coast ports of Norfolk-Hampton Roads,
Wilmington, and Morehead City (see Transportation for greater detail).

                           REGIONAL PERSPECTIVE
Pitt County is situated in the central portion of the North Carolina Coastal Plain, approximately 90
miles east of the Research Triangle, 30 miles inland from coastal waters, 80 miles from the Atlantic
Ocean (the famous Outer Banks), and roughly 275 miles from the Appalachian Mountains (the Blue
Ridge Parkway).
Greenville, the county seat and largest city, is centrally located within the County. Greenville is
approximately 85 miles east of Raleigh, N.C. (the state Capital and eastern-most point of the Research
Triangle), 163 miles south of Richmond, Virginia, and 115 miles north of Wilmington, N.C. (the
State's major seaport).
Ideally situated within eastern North Carolina at the hub of a radiating highway network, the Pitt
County/Greenville area is the logical point of distribution east of Raleigh. Nearly three-quarters of a
million people (750,000) people live within a forty-five (45) mile radius of Pitt County in such
industrialized cities as Rocky Mount, Tarboro, Wilson, Washington, Goldsboro, Kinston and New
Bern. In-bound freight can be delivered via CSX Transportation and the Norfolk Southern Railway or
over major four-lane highways (multi-lane divided highways run from Pitt County to all North
Carolina borders). For distribution purposes, all of the major regional cities can be accessed directly
via state/federal numbered highways, ensuring minimal transit times, safe driving conditions on wide
pavement, and few, if any, weight or height restrictions.

Transportation's website at www.dot.state.nc.us and click on State Travel Maps.
The Pitt County Area lies in the Atlantic Coastal Plain physiographic province and slopes gently to
the east and southeast. Broad, flat interstream areas are the dominant topographic features; marked
topographic variations are lacking. Slopes generally are less than 4 percent, except for breaks along
the south side of the Tar River and its tributaries. Also, the area north of the Tar River slopes more
gently than the southern section.
Areas north of the Tar River area generally are lower in elevation than that part south of the Tar.
Elevations in the northern and southern parts range, respectively, from approximately 10 to 50 feet
and 10 to 75 feet above mean sea level. The highest elevations are encountered along the extreme
western boundary of the county.
Streams are of sufficient abundance to provide good drainage. The Tar River and its tributaries drain
most of the county, but tributaries of the Neuse River, Swift Creek, and Contentnea Creek drain all
the southern and extreme western areas of the county, respectively.

Pitt County is underlaid by unconsolidated beds of sand, clay, and calcareous sediment. Inclined
southeasterly at a rate slightly greater than the land's surface, the beds thicken as they near the coast
and reach their greatest thickness offshore. For the most part, these beds were deposited in sea water
as the sea advanced and retreated during the geologic development of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. To a
much lesser extent, streams deposited layers of sediment which mixed with that deposited on the sea
floor. About 750 feet underneath the sedimentary cover underlying Greenville is a basement rock
floor consisting of weathered granite, gneiss, schist, and slate. Load bearing capabilities of soils vary
widely; many areas of the county can support heavy industrial loads without the need for pilings. Soil
boring tests are suggested. Preliminary test data is available for selected sites.

Underground aquifers in the region provide stable well yields of 250 gallons per minute up to 800
gallons per minute at depths of 350 feet to 550 feet. Average yields are 450 gpm.
                                     Physiography (Cont’d)

Pitt County is in the warmest area of North Carolina due to its close proximity
to the ocean and its low-lying topography. Greenville has an average daily
maximum temperature of 72°F and an average daily minimum of 48°F. The
average annual precipitation is 49.0 inches. A large part of the rainfall during
the growing season (approximately 220 freeze-free days between late March
and early November) is due to thunderstorms and is quite variable between
months, years, and localities. Winter rainfall is less variable. Frozen
precipitation occurs nearly every winter, but accumulations are usually small
and melt quickly. Wind speeds average about 8 miles per hour. The average
relative humidity in midafternoon is about 50%, falling from about 85% at
sunrise. Cloudiness is variable with sunshine about one-half of the total
daylight hours in winter and two-thirds of the total daylight hours in other

             Climatic Aberrations (30 years)
         Highest Daily Rainfall                     10.75 inches (9/16/1999)
         Highest Daily Snowfall                     12.8 inches (3/3/1980)
         Maximum Accumulation of Snow               16 inches (3/1980)
         Highest Wind Speed                         82 mph (6/4/1982)
    There are over 300 active clubs in Pitt County representing approximately 150 different
    organizations. These clubs appeal to people of all ages and satisfy virtually any area of interest,
    personal or professional. Chess, pinochle, or train fanatics, even people with a fancy for
    clowning or collecting can find a group that fits their niche. There are also opportunities for
    those who want a more active involvement (horseback riding, singing or flying), or those who
    are business oriented (engineers, business women, etc.).

Each semester the faculty and students of the School of Music at East Carolina University
perform a variety of concerts that are absolutely free of charge. These concerts are usually
performed by students as a requirement for a particular musical degree so they, therefore,
present a great variety. There are recitals in voice, cello, violin, percussion, and many other
instruments. The music played at these concerts has been rehearsed and sometimes composed by
the student. These talented students have mastered their pieces and/or instruments and give
excellent performances.                       Cultural Activities Festival

The creation of the School of Medicine at East Carolina University in 1972, followed by the construction of a modern
medical center in 1976, established Greenville/Pitt County as a regional health care center in Eastern North Carolina.
Pitt County has the third highest per capita ratio of physicians to population in the state of North Carolina.

Emergence as a major medical center has required the constant creation and expansion of services and new facilities to
meet the needs of a rapidly expanding regional population. One such facility and service is the Ronald McDonald
House, a temporary place of residence for families of critically ill children being treated at the medical center.

The following is a list of public medical facilities serving local and regional populations:

                                   The Brody School of Medicine At ECU

The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University represents nearly four decades of desire and dedicated
service by university officials, community physicians, local business and governmental leaders, and state legislators.
Originally committed to expanding opportunities for medical education in North Carolina and improving health care
delivery to state residents, the school's clinical services, degree programs and research activities have grown well
beyond original expectations since it opened its doors to the first twenty-eight students in 1977. The Brody School of
Medicine is now recognized as the country's most successful medical school in terms of meeting its mission of
training primary care physicians, providing access to minority and disadvantaged medical students and improving the
health of the people of our region.

Today, the full-time faculty includes 300 physicians and research scientists actively engaged in basic and clinical
research as well as contractual product testing services. About 300 medical students and 50 doctoral students are
enrolled and approximately 300 physicians participate in 27 residency and fellowship programs. In addition to the
M.D. programs, Ph.D. programs are offered in anatomy and cell biology, biochemistry, microbiology and
immunology, pathology, pharmacology and physiology. Accredited residency programs include: pathology and
laboratory medicine, emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics,
psychiatric medicine, surgery, and physical medicine and rehabilitation.

The Brody Medical Sciences Building is the center of the School of Medicine's education, service, and research
programs. Opened in 1982 and expanded in 1990, this nine-story 489,000 square-foot facility houses the basic and
clinical science departments, and has several conference rooms, well-equipped laboratories, and a 525-seat auditorium
in addition to classrooms and administrative offices. The Brody Outpatient Center is located on the first floor of the
Brody Building and was renovated in 1998.. Patients from throughout the region visit the Outpatient Center for
general, diagnostic, and subspecialty ambulatory care.

The William E. Laupus Health Services Library was founded in 1969 and serves the Schools of Medicine, Nursing,
and Allied Health Sciences. The two-story, 41,700 square-foot facility adjoining the Brody Building contains 155,616
bound volumes and offers over 9,000 journals in print and electronic formats. In addition to major printed resources,
the Library also provides an extensive collection of slides, videocassettes, audiotapes, and models. Computer assisted
instructional programs are also available in the library's computer laboratory. The library's catalog is on-line and
many of the HSL resources can be assessed remotely through the internet.
                               Healthcare Facilities (Cont’d)

The Biotechnology Center, completed in 1988, provides specialized areas to accommodate the
advanced instrumentation requirements of biotechnology, as well as additional office and laboratory
space for faculty involved in molecular biology and genetics research. The program provides core
research facilities for: flow cytometry (analytical and sorting); amino acid and protein analysis;
automated peptide sequencing and synthesis; manual DNA sequencing; polymerase chain reaction;
x-ray developing; monoclonal antibody services; access to computerized international molecular
biology databases and analysis programs; access to computerized molecular modeling; and a
discount molecular biology enzyme and reagent stock service.

Children's outpatient clinics are housed in the ground floor of the biotechnology building. The
Pediatric Outpatient Center accommodates the school's many specialty and general health clinics
for infants, children, and adolescents.

The Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center, opened in 1985, is a 39,000 square-foot facility located
between the Brody Medical Sciences Building and Pitt County Memorial Hospital. The center houses
treatment services in radiation oncology, gynecologic oncology, oncology hematology, pediatric
oncology, and surgical oncology. The center enables area physicians to administer the full spectrum
of treatment and ensures that its patients have access to state-of-the-art techniques and national
treatment protocols. The Center also supports basic science, clinical and epidemiological research
into the causes and treatment of cancer, and sponsors educational programs about cancer for health
professionals, patients, and the general public.

The addition of the 8,700 sf Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center in 1988 introduced a new and
sophisticated imaging tool to aid physicians in the diagnosis of certain diseases. MRI scans provide
strikingly clear images of the human anatomy without surgery, pain or exposure to ionizing radiation.
The Center includes rooms for patient reception, counseling, film developing, offices and operations.

The Eastern Carolina Family Practice Center, designed as a model clinic for Family Medicine
practitioners, serves an educational as well as a health care delivery purpose. The 28,000 square-foot
facility adjacent to the Cancer Center draws patients from a 50-mile radius of Greenville and serves
as many as 1,000 patients per week. In addition to standard family practice services, the Center also
provides physical therapy, psychology, sports medicine and dental services. The Family Practice
Center has been operational since 1977.

The Edward N. Warren Life Sciences Building, a 60,000 square foot facility, was dedicated in
1999. The building provides researchers laboratory space to house their equipment and conduct
research as well as providing comfortable housing for research animals. The facility also includes
operating rooms for experimental procedures, a cardiac catheterization lab, classrooms, and seminar

Other facilities include: 1) The Developmental Evaluation Clinic - a section of the Department of
Pediatrics; 2) ECU Women's Physicians - the group practice of the Department of Obstetrics and
Gynecology; 3) Firetower Medical Office - a model practice including family physicians, general
