Your community hospital

Built in 1999, Charles A. Cannon, Jr. Memorial Hospital is a 25-bed acute care hospital with a 10-bed inpatient behavioral health unit. The full-service emergency department, imaging department, laboratory, outpatient behavioral health, The Rehabilitation Center offering physical and occupational therapies, and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation round out the list of services.

Conveniently located in Linville, the center point of Avery county, Cannon is fully accredited by the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. Cannon Memorial Hospital was designated as a Critical Access Hospital in December 2005 to ensure long term operational and financial viability and to better extend services to the local community.


Hospital Renovations

ARHS-funded renovations are underway to create a new 8-bed acute care unit, followed by grant-funded renovations to add an additional 27 behavioral health inpatient beds. Current services offered at Cannon Memorial Hospital will continue. Click to learn more about the renovations and expansion >

My son had to go to the ER yesterday. The wait time was short. He was pleased and said the doctor was very helpful. Very grateful to Dr. Wilcox and the staff for taking such good care of him!
