Erlanger Health System and local officials cut the ribbon for the Erlanger Primary Care in Andrews, N.C. on Dec. 13.

Providers treat a wide range of issues from anxiety and ADHD to flu and diabetes.

 

“Today, I can say that we as public officials of Andrews and as patients of the Erlanger System are proud to say that we have not been forgotten and more than ever feel included and welcomed as we become accustomed to the Erlanger family,” said Andrews Mayor James Reid during the ribbon cutting ceremony on December 13. “The proof of the Erlanger commitment to providing health care to our citizens is right here.”
