About Us

Harris Regional Hospital and Swain Community Hospital serve the healthcare needs of four of the westernmost counties of North Carolina. Our longstanding reputation for quality, service, and compassion is what makes us stand out as the place for visitors, seasonal residents, and lifelong community members to receive outstanding healthcare.

Our number one goal is to provide a world-class patient experience. No matter how long your stay in our hospital, the quality of care you receive is our number one priority, each and every day. Not only is the quality of the clinical care you receive important, but so is how you feel when you’re in our care.

We sincerely hope your health does not require a visit with us, but should you or your loved ones need care, you can trust that you’re in good hands with us.
