AdventHealth Announces Location for State-of-the-Art Hospital in Buncombe County

Mar 19, 2024; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – AdventHealth is excited to announce the location for its new hospital in Buncombe County will be in Weaverville. The property located off US 25/70 west of I-26, will be home to the multispecialty hospital AdventHealth received approval to build through the State’s Certificate of Need (CON) application process in 2022.

AdventHealth is committed to providing whole-person care to the people who live and work in the state-designated service area for this CON, which includes Buncombe, Graham, Madison and Yancey Counties. The new location is strategically positioned to make it easier for people throughout the service area to get care in a convenient location.

“I am happy to be able to share where we will be building our new hospital,” said Brandon Nudd, President and Chief Executive Officer for AdventHealth Hendersonville. “We are ready to bring state-of-the-art medical services, leading-edge technology, and a team of skilled health care professionals to provide whole-person care – body, mind and spirit to the people living in and near this area.”

“AdventHealth is known for its excellent patient-centered care,” said Amanda Edwards, Buncombe County Commissioner. “Their new hospital will provide a high-quality, professional health care option for residents in Buncombe County and our neighbors across county lines.”

“Weaverville is pleased to welcome AdventHealth to town, and that very much needed health care services are on their way to north Buncombe, Madison and Yancey Counties,” stated Patrick Fitzsimmons, Weaverville Mayor.

The State approved AdventHealth’s application to build this new hospital in November 2022. However, HCA/Mission appealed the state’s decision leading to a trial in the fall of 2023. The Administrative Judge is expected to make his decision in that trial in the next few weeks.

“We are confident in the State’s decision to award AdventHealth Asheville the CON for the new hospital. With the purchase of the property in Weaverville, we are ready to move forward building this hospital,” explained Nudd.

AdventHealth is grateful for the collaboration and support of the people, local leaders and elected officials of these communities throughout this process and looks forward to being able to announce even more exciting news about this new hospital in the coming weeks.
