New Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care Facility in South Asheville

New Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care Facility Focuses on Efficiency, Quality Care
Ribbon Cutting Slated for August 3rd

Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care will officially unveil its new, state-of-the-art South Asheville facility in Meridian Place at 1833 Hendersonville Rd. on August 3rd, with an Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

“We’re just so excited because this beautiful new building will allow us to help even more people, at a quicker rate, all with top-notch equipment,” said Sharon Owen, Marketing Director for Sisters of Mercy Services. “Everything was designed with our patients in mind, to treat them most effectively and efficiently, and to make the overall experience as good as it can be. There’s great parking, it’s very easily accessible and the interior is streamlined so that everything runs smoothly. This facility is an investment in the community, just like the Sisters of Mercy have been making for 110 years.”

The new urgent care center will be open to the public seven days a week, with no appointment necessary to see a board-certified physician and receive care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses. The building, developed by Rusty Pulliam and designed by architect John Fisher, incorporates many environmentally-friendly features, plus cutting-edge equipment and digital x-ray capabilities. “We designed it in such a way that it will serve the community for many, many years to come,” explained Owen.

The August 3rd ribbon-cutting will be attended by dignitaries from the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce, and the public is welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served and neighboring businesses in Meridian Place will join in the celebration.

Sisters of Mercy CEO Tim Johnston said, “We’re very proud of this fantastic new care center, and extremely grateful to all the people who helped make it a reality. We want people to be aware that anyone can walk into any Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care center, with no appointment, and receive quality medical care for a fraction of the time and cost of an E.R. visit.”

The newly-built South Asheville facility is one of five Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care centers in Asheville, Arden, Brevard and Weaverville, and replaces the prior location at 1812 Hendersonville Rd. For more information, please call Sharon Owen at (828) 281-2598.
