One of the greatest successes of a new clinic — located on U.S. 221 in Ashe County —  is its efforts to remove previous barriers that limited rural residents’ access to health care. 

Affiliated with Ashe Memorial Hospital, Fleetwood Family Medicine began taking patients in May 2021 and offers accessible, high-quality care for all ages. Fleetwood Family Medicine provider Kathleen “Katie” Miller, FNP-C, described the impact that this clinic has had on the community as being “far beyond my wildest dreams.”
