About Us

Initially funded through a 5 year, $4.5 million grant from the Harvest Foundation, the Martinsville-Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness began operations in April 2005.

The Coalition is committed to providing medical and primary health services at Bassett Family Practice and Ridgeway Family Health – our Federally Qualified Health Centers – and to promoting health, reducing health risk factors and increasing access to medical services, primarily for the uninsured and underserved in the Martinsville-Henry County area.

Health Connect Center is also operated by the Coalition and is commonly referred to as a “one-stop shop” for individuals in MHC who need help breaking through barriers to health and wellness.

The Coalition collaborates with Go Healthy West Piedmont, a community initiative to reduce obesity and chronic disease in Virginia’s West Piedmont Health District.
