This extraordinary contribution is the single largest investment to the health and well-being of the Franklin community in the history of Macon County. The new, state-of-the-art Angel Medical Center facility is a key part of Mission Health’s Mission Future Ready initiative, an exceptional plan investing more than half a billion dollars regionwide to meet the future health needs of western North Carolina.
