Tri-Area Community Health at Ferrum

The Tri-Area Community Health at Ferrum was initially established in the lower level of Vaughn Chapel on the campus of Ferrum College; however, in February of 2020 we moved up to our new facility, located on Ferrum Mountain Road, across the street from campus. We continue to provide first class affordable health care for the community as well as students and faculty from Ferrum College.

Our medical and behavioral health providers are qualified to manage most medical problems that might arise, both acute and chronic, in all ages of patients. This care extends from pediatrics to adults and geriatric patients and includes minor surgeries, x-ray capabilities, routine laboratory testing and family planning.

We offer complete pediatric care from infancy through adolescent years for immunizations, routine well child examinations and sick visits. Our practitioners and skilled nurses also provide women’s health services, including annual exams, PAP tests, pregnancy testing, and birth control counseling.

The clinic also serves as the Student Health Center for Ferrum College students.

Our on-site pharmacy provides a convenient resource for filling your prescriptions or purchasing over the counter medications. We want to provide you with the care and support you need, in an atmosphere you will appreciate.
