Caldwell UNC Health Care held a ribbon cutting ceremony at Blowing Rock Medical Park and Urgent Care on Monday, May 22, 2016 to officially open the latest practice within the CMH family of providers. Guests included local dignitaries from Watauga County, Blowing Rock and Caldwell County government and municipal-elected officials, plus many friends and patients of the practice.
Laura Easton, CEO and President of Caldwell Memorial Hospital, welcomed guests and thanked the Blowing Rock community for their support. Easton then introduced Dr. Charles Davant, III, a life-long Blowing Rock resident who followed his father in the field of medicine and serving the High Country community. Dr. Davant expressed his gratitude to Caldwell UNC Health Care in recognizing the need and opportunity the practice offers local residents and visitors. Davant then thanked his staff for their loyalty in following him and Dr. John Davis, Jr. - his partner - to the new practice. Easton then proceeded to introduce each staff member and welcome them to the CMH family. Guests were then free to tour the new facility and speak with staff members. ( Mother Nature smiled upon the ceremony by providing pleasant weather and holding off any rain.)
