A new AdventHealth hospital in the Asheville area would mean additional access and choice for high-quality health care close to home.

Whole-person Care – treating the body, mind and spirit – is what AdventHealth is promising for the people of Buncombe, Graham, Madison and Yancey Counties and surrounding communities.

AdventHealth chose a location that would increase access to care in an area currently without coverage and would not duplicate services in a location that already had coverage.
