Top 100 Great Hospital in America Expands in Western North Carolina

Mission Hospital in Asheville NC is expanding and spreading its wings into Sylva. The North Carolina cancer center has purchased nearly five acres along U.S. 23 where it will build new offices. Those will be home to the Cancer Care of Western North Carolina and will operate a separate office this fall in obstetrics and gynecology. It’s the latest jewel in the crown of parent company, Mission Health. Mission Hospital in Asheville NC ranks as one of the nation’s Top 100 Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics for a record five consecutive years, and was named one of the “100 Great Hospitals in America” by Becker’s Hospital Review. This is great news for residents living in the area and at the private golf clubs in Western North Carolina!

Access to top-notch health care from a protected nature preserve is only one of the many perks of living in Western North Carolina – specifically from Balsam Mountain Preserve. Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Balsam Mountain Preserve is a one-of-a-kind gated mountain community that offers family fun in a relaxed atmosphere and nature preserve. The well designed variety of amenities here appeals to every generation, with a common thread revolving around the great outdoors. There’s swimming with the kids in the Junior Olympic pool, a cardio focused fitness center and horseback riding from the community’s equestrian center on more than 30 miles of groomed private trails in a private neighborhood unlike no where else. Other amenities include 38 miles of streams, a private family campground and a 24-hour-staffed gatehouse.

Balsam Mountain Preserve is also home to an Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course & Golf Practice Park. At elevations reaching 3,700 feet, it is one of the finest private golf clubs in Western North Carolina and won Real Estate Scorecard’s 2012 Bliss Award for Best Golf Community of the Year. The course is built on Mr. Palmer's belief that a course must be both truly beautiful and must serve the game of golf in its purest form─ the end result is a mountain golf course in a class of its own. The design and slope of the course allows players to see every shot and provides generous landing areas, making it a pleasure to play regardless of the golfer's skill level. The golf practice park sits alongside the Palmer course. This ultra-modern learning center features 30,000 square feet of bent grass teeing area spread over three levels of tees, plus a short game area and a large practice putting green.
