It is an honor to share with you some incredible news about what God is doing in our health ministry at Cornerstone Health Center. Many of you know, because you are still patients, Cornerstone Health Center opened in November 2008, the day after Thanksgiving Day. Drs. Aaron and Sarah Ernst, had moved here just two months prior to Charlotte with a vision to bring a new way of Chiropractic and health education to the North Charlotte area.
We were faced with a lot of challenges in that season. We were forced to grow a new business in the middle of a recession. This was character and faith building for the doctors and paved the way to handle the many challenges over the last 14 years. God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.
With the help of God, blood, sweat and lots of tears and some business savvy coaches we were reaching up to 250 people per week in just a few months of opening and eventually increasing that number to 500 a week within the first year. Together we have done over a million adjustments and facilitated healing for thousands.
Over the last 14 years, with Gods help, we have been have spent countless hours learning how to heal our bodies from the inside out, including specialized corrective Chiropractic care, functional nutrition, supportive supplementation and detoxification.
We have also been introduced to alternative modalities to assist with even the most difficult cases, most of which were learned during Dr. Sarah’s health crisis back in 2011. We have seen countless miracles from patients healing naturally from diabetes to thyroid conditions to even chronic pain.
We know God is moving because he is opening doors for us to expand into more locations around the Charlotte area. Many of you drive from all over the state of North Carolina as well as from other states to receive the benefits of the healthcare we provide. We want to be able to reach you!
Cornerstone Health Center is proud to announce that we will be joining efforts with an already established mission based Chiropractic practice in South Charlotte. Dr. Jeff Ashforth has been in practice for more than 20 years in South Charlotte.
He has also trained with the most influential Chiropractors in the world. He has been great friends and colleagues of Drs Aaron and Sarah Ernst for the last 14 years.
They have trained together, have the same values and philosophy about Chiropractic and how the body heals. Dr. Ashforth will continue to serve the South Charlotte community at his current location under the Cornerstone Health Center umbrella.
While his current office, located at, 10027 Park Cedar Drive Unit 150, Charlotte, is undergoing transformation over the next 6-8 weeks, he will be at our North location, 9401-H Statesville Road, working full time.
He will be assisting in all areas of support for the office, from adjusting patients, to taking X-rays, to even meeting you during an exam. He will also be seeing his current patient base out of the North office until construction is complete.
This will allow him to learn the current systems we use and implement them in the South office. Many of you from the North office have already shown interest in transferring to a South location.
YES YOU CAN!! However, we know this process will take time. There will be a transition time which includes preparation for us to be able to handle an increase patient load. We anticipate the opportunity to transfer to the South location by November/December 2022.
If you are currently a patient of Dr. Ashforth, we anticipate your ability to start back under his care at the South office after renovations are complete. We expect renovations to be completed by the end of September 2022. Initially upon opening the South location, we will be limited in hours to ensure a smooth transition and onboarding of systems and team members. In addition, the South office will be for Chiropractic adjustments only and all nutrition appointments will still be held at our North office until we can staff appropriately.
While we do our best to anticipate any issues, we will not be able to anticipate all of them, so we are grateful for your patience during this time as we do our best to make it a smooth process.
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE!
The excitement doesn’t stop there! Many of you are noticing some of the changes that are already occurring in our North office and the additions of new team members.
It’s been a long process, but we can finally announce that not only are we opening a South location, but we are also MOVING our North location. Yes, we are MOVING!
We are moving to 7035 Smith Corners Blvd. #200, just BEHIND the current location. Some of you might be familiar with the old Lazy Boy Furniture Store. We are going to be tenants of the right half of the building, which is about 5,000 square feet (with additional 2,000 sq ft of common area).
This space is about 4 times bigger that what we currently have. You might be wondering what we are going to do with all this space?! Over the last ten years, God has placed a vision on the hearts of the doctors to have a fully integrated health center including multiple modalities to heal God’s way.
We believe this will open doors for patients from all over the state and even the world to have access to the most innovative techniques to assist in their healing journey. The expectation is substantial growth in all areas.
The new office space will include, four adjusting bays, 10 exam/modality rooms, 2-4 offices, patient lounge and a large front desk area with 4-6 work stations. We will also have more restrooms!! This means no more standing in line
