Where you work is as important as where you play. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Western North Carolina is not only a beautiful place, but a dynamic region filled with natural resources, a variety of cultural and educational opportunities, and some of the highest quality health care in the country. Physicians and medical professionals have settled here, drawn by the exceptional beauty and quality of life in Hendersonville. Hendersonville is unique in having the feel of small town America, yet is geographically situated within convenient driving distance of the urban areas of Asheville, NC, Greenville, SC, and only a few hours from Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC. In 2022, Hendersonville was ranked on the list of “The South’s Best Mountain Towns” in Southern Living, and in 2019, ranked on the list of “Top 12 Small Towns in the South” by TripAdvisor. Nature is always close by with nearly twenty national, state, county and city parks, recreational areas and forests, many within of just outside the city limits of Hendersonville.
