Mercy Urgent Care for You and Your Family In Western North Carolina
Urgent Care: Mercy Urgent Care provides high-quality, affordable, and convenient medical care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Our seven urgent care centers are staffed with licensed, certified and highly trained professionals, ensuring you receive above quality care. Our doctors, nurses, and support staff provide more than 60,000 service visits each year. To date, we have served more than one million patients in Western North Carolina.
Primary Care: Mercy Urgent Care also offers primary-care services through Frances Warde Family Health in Brevard. This practice, which is accepting new patients, also offers a diabetes education and treatment program in conjunction with Transylvania Regional Hospital. Frances Warde Family Health was started more than 30 years ago to provide healthcare for the people living in rural Rosman, and it’s named for Frances Warde, the first Sister of Mercy to come to the United States. Today, family nurse practitioner Carol Hoban heads the practice.
Mercy Urgent Care will be the recognized leader for providing urgent care and related services, consistent with the values of Catherine McAuley.
