"As we deliver on our mission of Making Communities Healthier it is important for us to serve people where they live. We are privileged to care for the Cullowhee and Tuckasegee communities, and southern Jackson County, and having the combination of Dr. Davis and Emily Jenkins will make healthcare more accessible for this vibrant part of western North Carolina,” said Steve Heatherly, CEO of Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital.
