Mission Statement
The Martinsville-Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness is committed to providing medical and primary health services at Bassett Family Practice and through a variety of other programs to promote health, reduce health risk factors and to increase access to medical services, primarily for the uninsured and underserved in the Martinsville-Henry County area. 

Who We Are
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 - our Federally Qualified Health Center 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 (Uptown Martinsville) 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. Medical care is not offered at Health Connect but it helps connect individuals with needs related to healthcare with information and the proper agencies so that they can be informed when making decisions about their health. For example, Health Connect helps women access mammograms through the Ladies First program; helps people with diabetes access annual eye exams through the Eyes Forward program, as well as helps people, who are eligible, access affordable prescription medications through the MedAssist program.
 
 In addition to the services offered at Bassett Famly Practice and Health Connect, the Coalition also offers chronic disease self-management, medication assistance, a variety of fitness classes and care coordination to services to patients and local residents. 
 The Coalition collaborates with Go Healthy West Piedmont, a community initiative to reduce obesity and chronic disease in Virginia's West Piedmont Health District.
