Kernersville healthcare options were a well-kept secret in 2002 when we first considered a move to North Carolina, but became a primary reason we chose Kernersville as out home. Had we known then that Kernersville healthcare options rivaled cities of much greater size and population our decision would have been much less stressful. For my husband and me, moving farther north to be closer to our kids and grandkids had to be balanced against ready access to top-notch healthcare for my husband, a diet-controlled and a recent recipient of a cardiac stent. To learn more about the town of Kernersville the best information is available through their dynamic Chamber of Commerce
As we began our Kernersville area home search our healthcare needs were front and center in our minds. Coming from Ocala Florida we were spoiled. On the Ocala healthcare front we had a choice of three nearby hospitals and specialists too numerous to count. This time around although we had hopes of finding a nice mid-sized community (25,000 or less) to call home, we were certain we would have to choose Winston Salem, Greensboro or even Charlotte as our next home if we were to meet our immediate medical needs. We needn’t have worried since Kernersville healthcare options include an almost endless supply of medical practitioners. We quickly established ourselves with the largest established medical practice, Novant Health Kernersville Internal Medicine. Under the expert care of Dr Sherry-Ryter Brown, and her referrals, my husband was quickly able to become established with a world class cardiologist to monitors his on-going cardiac care as well has numerous caregivers to meet his needs as a diabetic. We recently followed Dr Ryter-Brown to Pineview Family Medicine another Novant facility. Since our arrival, Kernersville healthcare options have expanded to include Cone Health-MedCenter Kernersville, another large full service practice.
For immediate healthcare needs (e.g. annual poison ivy or a wrist fr1998cture from a fall off of a real estate sign) we have ready access to not one, but three urgent care facilities (Novant Urgent Care, Cone Urgent Care, and FastMed Urgent Care). Never did we imagine that Kernersville healthcare options would include three national drugstore chains (Walgreens, Rite-Aide, and CVS) as well as two smaller pharmacies (Kernersville Pharmacy and Gateway Pharmacy) fashioned after full-service drugstores of old but now able to meet the growing consumer need for compound medicines. Our favorite, Kernersville Pharmacy, and owner/pharmacist Stan Watts reminds us why we chose small town living to begin with as he greets every customer by name and can anticipate most concerns before they are posed. From the aroma of gourmet coffee as we walk in the door to the staff’s willingness to take time to really care about clients, this establishment never disappoints.
A real gem among our Kernersville healthcare options is Novant Health-Kernersville Medical Center, which opened its doors in 2012. In addition to a 20-bed emergency area our new hospital boasts four operating rooms, 46 private patent rooms, a pharmacy and a full range of auxiliary medical equipment and services.
Due to open near the sight of the new Kernersville Medical Center is the Kernersville U.S Department of Veteran Affairs Healthcare Center, a 280,000 square foot facility which will provide world class primary care, general and specialized mental health services and a wide variety of other specialized services to veterans from throughout the region. This latest addition is a real boon to Kernersville’s growing population of residents who find themselves part of a ‘sandwich generation’, needing to care for themselves as well as children and aging parents.
Whether you are looking for an escape from earthquakes of the west, storms of the northeast or hurricanes of the south, Kernersville healthcare options mean that world class healthcare is available just around the corner.
