Quality health services in Montgomery County offer residents the opportunity to choose from a scope of services to tailor care to their specific needs. Preventative care as well as care for those suffering from illness or injury is provided through physician offices located throughout the county.

Halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Appalachian Mountains, Montgomery County is protected against severe climate changes. Residents enjoy mild weather all year. Summer highs range from the mid 60's to low 90's, while winter temperatures range from the 20's to the low 50's. To us, snow is a treat. Not every year has a snowfall as we are protected by the Uwharries that keep the brunt of winter storms to the north of us. It's an ideal climate for enjoying the many outdoor recreation opportunities the count offers.
