Review for Wheeling Health Right Inc, Wheeling, WV, USA
As a practicing physician and as a CEO for 13 years of a major health care system, it has been my privilege to have been associated with Wheeling Health Right for 30 years. Under the caring and leadership of Kathie Brown, the organization has grown from a very small clinic to one that is now serving over 15,000 working poor individuals for their primary health care and medications. More services have been added each year and the clinic is about to initiate a full service Dental Clinic.
For the past eight years I have been involved directly with the clinic as a volunteer physician, seeing first-hand the competent and caring work of the mid-level providers, nurses and support staff. As in all organizations, successful ones, must have leadership at the top that sets the tone for the organization. We are blessed to have Kathie Brown as our leader who serves tirelessly to care the economically less fortunate individuals of our community and she does it with a very small administrative staff. In spite of significant cuts in funding by our state government, the clinic has a positive bottom line. This is accomplished through Kathie’s efforts to be the “designated beggar” of the organization.
Wheeling Health Right is truly deserving to be honored by receiving a 2015 Top Rated Award.
