HHS was opened in 1979 and employs 46 employees, of which 6 are professional providers. The current operating budget is $4 million, which includes a $1.5 annual federal grant award from the US Department of Health and Human Services.  This grant is used to serve uninsured and underinsured patients.  Demographics of the communities served may be further described as: high levels of poverty, higher than state average for unemployment, numbers of uninsured/underinsured, and high levels of minority populations.  These characteristics are not unique in the community health center (CHC) setting and have earmarked CHC’s as safety net providers.


HHS offers primary care services to patients of all ages (pediatric through geriatric) at three (3) medical centers and one dental office.  Currently HHS services 4,600 patients.  Services include office visits for both acute and chronic illnesses, lab work, cancer and other disease screenings, EKG, immunizations/injections, minor emergency care, health education/case management, pharmacy assistance via the federal 340(b) program, behavioral health care, and basic preventative dental care. All HHS services are offered on a sliding fee scale to ensure quality care is not hindered by financial barrier.  Centers are typically open Monday-Friday, 8:30 am. to 5:00 pm.

HHS is governed by a volunteer community Board of Directors.  Management staff works in the Administrative office located in Ivor, VA.
