Last week, members of the MHC Coalition for Health and Wellness visited the General Assembly in Richmond to attend Virginia’s 2019 Healthcare Safety Net Legislative Day. This event is organized each year by the Virginia Community Healthcare Association and the Virginia Healthcare
Foundation. Over 80 representatives from healthcare safety net organizations throughout the Commonwealth gathered to participate in visiting and meeting with the legislators. The Coalition discussed the work that its two health centers do in the community, along with Medicaid Expansion and strategies to optimize health delivery systems in the region.
