A Community In Need

Patrick County ranks as a Medically Underserved Area (MUA) in the state of Virginia. Residents in this county have a tremendous barrier to acquiring the health care they deserve. In 2017, the local hospital shut its doors leaving the nearest emergency medical location over 30 miles away. 

With the added burden of a severe economic downturn and a growing unemployment rate of 4%, a core group of interested Patrick County citizens met to discuss the need of providing medical care assistance to medically uninsured citizens of the county. Currently, over 13.4% of the citizens in Patrick County under the age of 65 are without health insurance and 14.3% are persons living in poverty. The citizens of Patrick County put their own caring hearts to work after seeing a need in their community. From dream to reality, the Caring Hearts Free Clinic was created.

We give the best possible care.
Over those years, I couldn’t afford medical insurance and have been denied Medicaid...Without them, I would not be where I am today. I will always be humble and appreciative of the people working at Caring Hearts.

All the staff at Caring Hearts really do care! I feel heard and seen. Pam feels like a healthcare partner, not just a doctor.
