REMEMBERING our Founder dr. Bruce elliston

It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our founding Medical Doctor, Bruce Elliston, MD. He was an innovator and visionary who was among the first attending physicians in the new specialty of Family Practice at the MAHEC Residency Program. Dr. Elliston established our practice in 1978 as Asheville Family Health Center. By pursuing Dr. Elliston’s vision for primary care, The Family Health Centers has grown into the thriving independent practice it is today.
“Dr. Elliston’s impact on patient care in our community will be felt for generations to come. I will remember him as a cherished mentor and friend.”
--Dr. Rob Steward, President
