Internal Medicine of Ashland was formerly known as Theresa Thomas Medical Center. Established in the early 1970’s. It was named after Theresa Thomas of Ashland Virginia by her husband who donated the building in her name. A picture of Theresa Thomas still hangs in the original building. Jan 2018 Bon Secours moved Theresa Thomas to the new location and changed the name to Bon Secours Internal Medicine of Ashland. Generations of families have grown up coming to this practice for their healthcare needs, even with changing of providers and location. Patients are very loyal and still call us Theresa Thomas. It has the feel of a small town medical office, patients know each other – some staff know patients – they go to the same church and shop at the same stores.
Ashland is a charming town in Hanover County, Virginia, located 16 miles north of Richmond along Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 1; with a population of just under 8,000 people. Randolph Macon College is located in Ashland, and it's known as the “Center of the Universe”. Developed by the railroad as a mineral springs resort, the origin of the town dates back to the late 1840s. Officially incorporated on February 19, 1858, the town was named “Ashland” after native son Henry Clay’s estate in Kentucky. Today Ashland's residents enjoy prosperity fueled by the college, a growing private sector and a strong regional economy. Safe streets and an efficient police department also make Ashland a town of bicyclists, joggers, and walkers. Ashland boasts a diverse collection of neighborhoods and businesses with a blend of architectural styles from large Victorian homes to modern office buildings. Therefore, as the town continues to evolve and expand, it will strive to maintain a high quality of life by preserving the diversity of the past and capturing the technologies and development of the future.
