JEFFERSON — Ashe Women & Children’s Health, Ashe Memorial Hospital’s new health and wellness clinic, is now open.
Located on the campus of Ashe Memorial Hospital, Ashe Women & Children’s Health is committed to transforming women’s healthcare in Ashe County. The new clinic offers both obstetric and primary care services for women as well as pediatric primary care for children, ranging from newborn to adolescents.
“We want this to be a place where patients can receive the necessary care and know that they are being cared for like family, especially our mothers,” Dr. Tara Burgher said. “Mothers are so busy taking care of everyone else, that we want them to be able to take a breath and know that someone is here to take care of their needs. We hope that the women of Ashe County can feel like they have every opportunity to be the best Mom, best wife and best member of the community that they can be.”
The new clinic, which features both sick and well waiting rooms as well as 10 patient care rooms, including women’s exam, pediatric exam, procedural, Ultrasound and Non-Stress Test (NST) consultation rooms for patients, is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.
“We are excited to offer high-quality primary care and obstetric services for women and to continue to improve the health of children in our community,” Ashe Memorial Hospital CEO Brian Yates said. “Led by a team of experienced providers, Ashe Women & Children’s Health is committed to transforming women’s healthcare in Ashe County and helping meet the needs of women through every step of their health and wellness journey.”
