Mission Health planning to build new $7 million home for Fullerton Genetics Center


Mission Health is planning to build a new $7 million, 24,000-square-foot building at the collection of medical buildings on Hendersonville Road on Vanderbilt Park (next to former Biltmore School) to house its Fullerton Genetics Center. The center, which has a main location and a satellite location, is reportedly still busting at the seams. The new center would allow Fullerton Genetics to expand its work.

It’s just the latest move from Mission, which is steadily building on its health care monopoly in Western North Carolina.
