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.

Wheeling Health Right has taken care of all my medical needs for several years now. Staff is professional and courteous. When scheduling appointments, they try their best to work around my crazy work schedule. The services continue to expand to suit the needs of their patients. There's a pharmacy on site with $2 co-pays for ALL meds. They provide a diabetes clinic, counseling services, help those wanting to give up tobacco products and all kinds of things that directly meet the needs of the 20,000+ patients. They also have coordinated efforts with the Lions Club to provide an eye exam and glasses to those in need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase funding so they can get more staff to increase efficiency of services offered.
