Illnesses and injuries cannot tell time. It always seems your child's sore throat gets worse after dinner or that knee pain you thought could wait until Monday stops you from walking on a Saturday afternoon. That is why Mountain Family Care Center, on the campus of Ashe Memorial Hospital, is open early in the morning, late at night and on weekends to provide the medical care you need when you need it.
