Health and medical care is the second largest industry cluster in Haywood County and offers a comprehensive array of services. Two major medical facilities provide the majority of medical services to our community. Haywood Regional Medical Center- A Duke LifePoint Hospital and Mission Health Systems both provide advanced, compassionate and safe healthcare for Haywood and surrounding counties.
Haywood Regional Medical Center was founded in 1927 as the first county hospital in North Carolina. In addition to its medical center, its campus is home to a health and fitness center, the Haywood Outpatient Care Center, and The Homestead, an inpatient hospice facility. In addition Haywood Regional operates two urgent care centers.
Mission Health System offers an expanded medical office building for primary care, specialty care, and imaging and laboratory services. It will soon offer a tele-medicine for minor and complex care.
