FROM CAROLINA PUBLIC PRESS:

Access to health care in the Plateau, a rural mountainous region of Western North Carolina, may be significantly improved by the beginning of 2021, with the opening of a new community health center.

The facility would serve the Plateau communities of Cashiers, Highlands, Sapphire, Lake Glenville and Lake Toxaway, potentially changing the face of medical care in parts of Jackson, Macon and Transylvania counties.

The new facility is being planned through a partnership involving Blue Ridge Community Health Services, Mountain Area Health Education Center and the Highland Cashiers Health Foundation.
