Living and Working Here

At Park Ridge Health we have always felt blessed to have the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop to such a special community and region. Western North Carolina is home to some of the most amazing natural scenery, cultural offerings and outdoor activities in the nation. From a carefree drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, to a hike up Looking Glass Rock; to a stroll through Downtown Hendersonville and an evening with the Asheville Symphony, the Western North Carolina region offers residents and visitors the opportunity to experience what has been consistently ranked one of the best areas to live and work. It is our mission as an organization to ensure that our Park Ridge Health family of physicians, team members and volunteers feel as empowered by their work environment as they do by the community they serve. This is why we strive each and every day to support the service principles of the Park Ridge Experience and the values they represent – not only for our guests and visitors, but for each other – as a true workplace family.

The hospital is a major economic engine for the entire region. More than $250 million dollars in salaries and benefits were paid to 1,100 team members in the past five years, $59 million in 2010 alone.
