CLYDE, N.C. (March 29, 2019) – Blue Ridge Health (BRH) in Haywood County is pleased to introduce Dr. Paulette Doiron, who joined the practice in Clyde, NC late last year as a medical provider. She completed her Family Medicine Residency, as well as a Fellowship in Maternal Child Health, through MAHEC in Asheville where she received training to perform C-Sections. With experience working in Western North Carolina, she brings much needed expertise in prenatal health to Haywood County and surrounding communities. Currently, before starting her day at the practice each morning, Dr. Doiron sees BRH patients who have been admitted to the hospital. She is also part of the team of providers delivering babies, including those delivered via CSection, at Haywood Regional Medical Center.

Dr. Doiron spent her formative years in Louisiana building forts in the woods and riding horses. Her grandfather was a family physician, so she grew up with stories about him delivering babies and making house calls. It was always her dream to follow in his path and offer full spectrum care for families, including prenatal care, deliveries and newborn care.

Additionally, her drive to train and practice medicine align perfectly with the mission pursued by BRH – to provide quality healthcare that is accessible and affordable for all. “I believe that everybody deserves the opportunity to be healthy. I chose family medicine so I could care for a variety of patients and always be inspired to learn new things. I am grateful for the opportunity to work at Blue Ridge Health where patients can be seen regardless of income or insurance status. It’s healthcare the way it should be provided,” she said.

Having relocated to 490 Hospital Drive in Clyde in late 2017, BRH – Haywood has since undergone a significant expansion. Beyond Dr, Doiron, three additional full-time physicians and have been added, a second full-time behavioral health provider is now available, nutrition services are provided each week, and the BRH dental bus will be on site for the first time in May. BRH-Haywood is also currently remodeling the lower level of its building to include a discount pharmacy. The pharmacy – which will provide deliveries to patients in Haywood and Jackson Counties – is currently on track to open in May.

“We’re so proud of the exciting, continued expansion that is taking place at our practice in Haywood County,” said Dr. Richard Hudspeth, Chief Executive Officer for BRH. “The expanded capacity has allowed us to bring on some wonderful, compassionate providers like Dr. Doiron, whose expertise and experience is a welcome addition for our organization and the County. Her presence, and the availability of comprehensive, integrated care, is sure to improve lives and health outcomes in the community.”

Dr. Paulette Doiron is now accepting new patients at BRH-Haywood located at 490 Hospital Drive, Clyde, NC 28721. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please call 828-246-6372.
