Mission: Wheeling Health Right provides quality health care and medications to those most in need, the low-income, and uninsured.  The patients are at or below 100% of the federal poverty level, not eligible for Medicaid or VA benefits and residents of WV or Ohio. These patients are the most needy, the ones who “fall through the cracks.” The patients are primarily the working poor, who can’t afford health insurance or it is not offered at their place of employment.  Wheeling Health Right was incorporated in 1985 and opened its doors in 1986.  Wheeling Health Right currently serves over 16,000 patients, delivered 64,000 patient encounters by midlevel providers and physicians in FY 2006. The clinic filled 145,000 prescriptions. Patient numbers have grown dramatically through the downsizing, layoffs and closing of major industries such as steel and mining in the Ohio Valley. New jobs are retail, no benefit jobs. The clinic depends heavily on community support and in kind donations.  In FY 2006, in kind inpatient, outpatient, lab, testing, x-rays and surgery totaled over $6.4 million.  Donated pharmaceuticals tallied $12 million.  Volunteer services of physicians, both primary care and specialty, totaled over $2million.
Geographic areas served: Northern Panhandle of West Virginia including Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel & Tyler Counties and Belmont County in Ohio.
