ASHEVILLE, N.C. (May 20, 2015) – Mission Health is pleased to announce the addition of Patti Wheeler, MD. Dr. Wheeler is joining Mission Medical Associates and Mission Community Primary Care – Highlands, a service provided by Highlands-Cashiers Hospital from Highlands Medical Associates in Highlands, North Carolina, where she served as a family medicine physician.
“It is our pleasure to welcome Dr. Wheeler to the group of fine providers at Highlands-Cashiers Hospital,” said Jackie Ring, President and Chief Nursing Officer, Highlands-Cashiers Hospital. “Dr. Wheeler understands fully the great necessity to provide the best care to every patient and is known for her endless patient dedication.”

HIGHLANDS, N.C. (March 2, 2015) – Highlands-Cashiers Hospital has received a generous contribution to purchase five state-of-the-art beds that improve the care for patients at the local hospital.  The gift was made possible by the Tarver Family Foundation Charitable Trust. 

 The new beds are Hill-Rom Accumax Quantum beds with continuous care for safe skin. One feature includes built-in scales so that if a patient is unable to get out of their bed, staff can still assess their weight and provide appropriate medical care.  In addition, the new beds provide uninterrupted pressure redistribution which helps prevent any breakdown of a patient’s skin.
