Watauga Medical Center Offers Online Payment Option


Boone, NC (February 12, 2009) - Watauga Medical Center has set up a secure online bill payment option to offer convenience to patients. The new system, put into effect late January, will allow customers to pay their hospital bill from the comfort of their home or office.

Go to and click on the "Pay Bill Online" icon in the lower left part of your computer screen. The user-friendly payment option asks customers to enter the hospital account number shown on their bill, their credit card information, e-mail address and mailing address into the secure web site to process a payment. 

“We see this new payment option as one more way we are “making life better,” said Gillian Baker, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development.

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System, in an effort to care for its patients every need, views this online payment option as part of its complete patient care effort. 

Watauga Medical Center is the first of the three hospitals of Appalachian Regional Healthcare System to put this program into effect. Cannon Memorial Hospital and Blowing Rock Hospital are expected to make the payment option available in the future.
