AdventHealth Ribbon Cutting at Family Medicine Office

N.C., Brevard, NC (August 26, 2019) — AdventHealth Medical Group Family Medicine at Brevard celebrated its new care option for people across Transylvania County with a ribbon cutting on August 26, 2019. Sven Jonsson, MD, MS is providing whole-person care – mind, body and spirit – to families in Brevard and surrounding communities. This office is conveniently located at the Water Oaks Suites, 123 East Main Street, Brevard.

Dr. Jonsson is board-certified in family medicine and has been providing direct patient care for nearly three decades. He has been part of the AdventHealth care team since 2016. Dr. Jonsson has a genuine interest in prevention-focused medicine and chronic disease treatment.

AdventHealth is a not-for-profit, faith-based health care system that is dedicated to fulfilling a core set of service standards that include making it easy for patients to receive the care they want, when they want it and where they want it. That dedication is what led long-time physician John Folger, Jr., MD to reach out to explore the options of bringing an AdventHealth physician practice to Transylvania County.

“Dr. Folger has been caring for the people of Transylvania County for decades. His compassion for the people in his care led him to advocate for them to have additional care options to meet their whole health needs. Through our conversations, we quickly realized that Dr. Jonsson would be a great fit for this opportunity, said Christy Sneller, Vice President, AdventHealth Physician Services.

Dr. Jonsson and his family came to love the Brevard community when their son attended college here. Knowing the beauty of the region and the people is what helped lead Dr. Jonsson to become part of AdventHealth in 2016. He is excited to now offer convenient care to the community.

“I have been drawn to the people of Brevard and Transylvania County ever since our family first came here to enjoy the natural beauty and move our son into Brevard College as a student. It is such a privilege to now be able to form even closer relationships with these families by caring for them on their whole health journeys,” said Dr. Jonsson.
