Angel Primary Care announces the addition of Melanie Denny to the staff as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Denny brings her clinical experience with both adults and children to the practice. Her early nursing career includes five years in several U.S. Army medical facilities, including time in Kosovo, Iraq, and Germany.

After completing her military service, she has worked at medical facilities in Eastern North Carolina and Virginia.

Denny received her BSN from the University of Virginia and her MSN from Duke University. She is in the process of completing her DNP, Doctor of Nursing Practice, from the University of Virginia.


Doctoral and bachelor’s degree programs in nursing and a master’s degree program in technology have been added to the lineup of academic offerings available this fall at Western Carolina University’s instructional site at Biltmore Park Town Square in Asheville.

The University of North Carolina Board of Governors earlier this year gave its approval for WCU to begin offering the doctor of nursing practice degree jointly with the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Considered the terminal degree in nursing, the program will prepare students to practice at the highest clinical level and provide leadership in health care systems.


At the upcoming Aug. 27 Ladies Night Out Program, the topic will be Women’s Health and Fitness. Guest speaker will be Patti Abel with Abel Wellness.

Regular exercise reduces the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer as well as reduces the risk of having a stroke. Studies show that regular exercise is one of the best things you can do for your mind and you have a better sense of well-being following a workout. Ladies are invited to come learn how to keep your mind sharp and improve your mood at this month’s Ladies Night Out.


Angel Medical Center (AMC) announces the addition of Anita Renshler, RN, MSN, FNP-C to its Emergency Department and Urgent Care Center as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

“We’re pleased to welcome Ms. Renshler to the staff in our ER and also at our Urgent Care Center,” said Jim Bross, President and CEO. “Her skills and experience will be a great addition to both departments.”
