About Us

Our History

The Haywood County Medical Society, a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization, was originally organized in 1959 for the association and mutual benefit of the physicians of Haywood County, North Carolina.  The purpose of the society is to serve as a forum for continuing medical education, promote collegiality among providers and to improve the standards of medical care for our community.
