The Appalachian District Health Department was established in 1933 and covers Alleghany, Ashe and Watauga Counties. The health department provides many services such as high quality clinical care, nutrition services, Women Infants and Children (WIC), community health services and environmental health services.
The rebranding initiative represents our ability to continue to provide high quality patient care and essential services that are critical for the health of the public. We are committed to serving our patients and clients and ensuring the fulfillment of our mission to promote safe and healthy living, prevent disease and protect the environment.
We provide a variety of high quality services to meet the needs of our communities:
AppHealthCare accepts private insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare, as well as patients without health insurance. We offer a sliding fee discount program for patients.
AppHealthCare is governed by a Board of Health and an FQHC Board, Partners in Public Health.
