Initially funded through a 5 year, $4.5 million grant from the Harvest Foundation, the Martinsville-Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness (Connect Health + Wellness) began operations in April 2005.
We are committed to providing medical and primary health services at Bassett and Ridgeway – our Federally Qualified Health Centers – dental services at the Community Dental Clinic, and to promoting health, reducing health risk factors and increasing access to medical and dental services, primarily for the uninsured and underserved in the Martinsville-Henry County area.
In 2021, the Board of Directors and Leadership staff recognized that the addition of new services and clinics had helped the Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness grow and develop into a more dynamic and innovative organization, and that the branding and names of yesteryear no longer fit the organization. It was determined that a new name and complete rebrand would help improve and simplify the process of patient access for the organization’s clinics. In 2023, after much research conducted and time and effort put forth by the Board of Directors and the Leadership staff, the Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness was rebranded as Connect Health + Wellness.
Increase access. Reduce Risks. Together, we can improve the overall health of our community.
A healthcare organization working together to transform our community by refocusing on prevention and overall wellness for healthier outcomes.
Working together to pursue our mission and vision our healthcare organization will embrace the following core values:
Respect, Excellence, Compassion, Integrity, Teamwork and Equity.
