February 15, 2016

Clyde, N.C. (Feb, 2016)  – Haywood Regional Medical Center (HRMC) announces that Emily Watson, PA-C  will join Haywood Family Practice Canton beginning February 2016.

 “We are very pleased with the addition of Emily Watson, PA,” said Phillip Wright, CEO of Haywood Regional Medical Center.  “She is bringing her strong passion for providing community based care with top notch clinical training and expertise.”

Emily Watson, PA received her Physician Assistant training at East Carolina University and is board certified by the NCCPA (National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants).

“Canton will be much different from the large, multi-specialty practice I came from in the heart of Nashville, TN – but in all the right ways. I’m excited to be part of a smaller, closer-knit community and to join the already fantastic team.” said Watson. “Dr. Jones offers both competent and compassionate care (a rare find these days), as does his other PA, Suzanne Cagle – so I hope only to add to their excellence. Having worked in Internal Medicine, I can help expand their practice into the older populations and provide more availability for locals to stay local.”
