What’s New with RAHC

Patients’ Stories


RAHC has given me access to health care which has helped since losing my job. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor.

We had a great experience getting our COVID-19 vaccines at RAHC and thanks to those lovely nurses that took time to talk to us about our shots.

I had been avoiding going to the doctor and dentist for five years because I couldn’t afford health insurance. I am so grateful for RAHC’s affordable health care.

The pediatrician is always so patient with my granddaughter and talks to her, so she feels included in her appointment.

Health Resources and Services Administration Health Center Quality Leader

Health Center Quality Leader

The Rockbridge Area Health Center was among the top 30% of all Health Services Resources Administration (HRSA) supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across our clinical operations in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. Benchmarks were determined by mathematically adjusting for certain health center characteristics facilitating comparisons across health centers, and sorting health centers into quartiles for each clinical quality measure. Health centers are assigned a quartile ranking for each of several critical clinical quality measures, based on their performance. These rankings are then averaged together to create an Average Quartile Ranking (AQR). Health centers that ranked in the top decile (top 30% of average quartile rankings) are awarded Health Center Quality Leader recognition.
