Keith Meinecke, PA-C joined the Inpatient Physician Group at Watauga Medical Center and Cannon Memorial Hospital in August 2021.

He was born and raised in Galax, VA before moving to Boone and attending Appalachian State University where he earned his undergraduate degree in Exercise Science in 2005.  After many years working in the operating room in Charlotte, NC as an orthopedic trauma consultant, Keith was thrilled to move back to Boone in 2019 and earn his Physician Assistant degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine through their collaboration with ASU.

Keith loves the High Country community and is honored to help serve the medical needs of all those who call it home or come to visit this beautiful place.  When he is not at the hospital, Keith will most likely be found spending time with family and friends and/or somewhere outside where he enjoys hiking, camping, mountain biking, skiing, and many of the other outdoor activities this area has to offer.
