Help us serve our community and keep all of our neighbors healthy.
As a community health center with a charitable mission, the Rockbridge Area Health Center provides quality care, at a community level, for anyone walking through the door. In the last three years, the Health Center has responded to several crises by adding doctors and other health care providers, introducing prenatal services, expanding pediatric services, and adding a dental service site in Buena Vista.
One of the characteristics that separates community health centers from other health care practices is that the patients have direct input on the services and care provided. Every year community health centers report on their quality outcomes and services. It is notable that our Health Center achieved the highest level of recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home in 2017. In addition, RAHC was recognized at a national level for the quality care that is provided and for the ways we seek to improve access to health care services. Please consider a donation so that we will continue to be prepared, with your support, to respond and react to the next health care crisis. Personally, I am immensely grateful to the Rockbridge community and all of those who have traveled this 25-year journey with us- from Free Clinic to Community Health Center. Thank you all – very much.
-Suzanne Sheridan, CEO
