ShareCorps-Ohio Valley Health Ctr-Health&Hunger Associate
 
 
 
In May 2005, a group of concerned individuals formed a committee and decided to open a health center that would benefit the medically uninsured or our county. Less than a year later, on March 13, 2006, we opened our doors to those from our county who were struggling without health care or any medical insurance. Within a short time we also joined the Ohio Association of Free Clinics to assist us in serving our clientele. We are a 501c3 organization providing health care services to medically uninsured individuals, supported financially through private donations, gifts and grants. The Ohio Valley Health Center is pleased to offer high quality health care services, including: - Primary Care Services - In-house Lab Testing - Basic Physicals - Chronic Care, e.g., High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Cholesterol, etc. - Acute Care, e.g., colds, earaches, stitches removed, etc. - Prescription Assistance Program for free medications from pharmaceutical companies - Behavioral Health / Counseling Referrals - Dental and Vision Services provided through Referral Program - Referral Resources for Outside Testing and Specialty Care - Wound Care (Minor Procedures) - Uninsured or Underinsured
