About Ashe Family Healthcare (AFH)

Ashe Family Healthcare (AFH) is a Nurse Practitioner owned and operated clinic.

The practice opened in December of 2008 with a single Nurse Practitioner and business plan intended on a 10 year growth period. Efforts that surround the principle of doing good for others and placing God before ourselves has turned a simple concept into a mission of change within the community. As a result, the anticipated 10 year mark was achieved at the second year of business. In 2013, we moved to our present location and are continually trying to find ways to improve the quality of care we provide and look for ways to reach out to our community.

We have grown to a multiple provider practice and are offering services unique to the high country. We employ and utilize interns from Appalachian State University called Health Promotion Specialists as a free resource to our patients to facilitate lifestyle changes and behavior modifications. We utilize advanced and traditional laboratory services to help improve health assessment and outcomes without excessive individual financial burdens. We incorporate “a hand up” versus “a hand out” philosophy for individuals in need of care.

We periodically offer community health screens. We engage in community education by offering lectures or seminars on various health topics. We, as a team of professionals and assistants, are supporting one another through faith, encouragement, and leadership. To join our practice is to be a part of a mission and a family like no other.
