ABOUT THE WVACHS

The West Virginia Alliance for Creative Health Solutions

In October of 2014, a group of providers from six federally qualified health centers (Cabin Creek Health Systems, FamilyCare, Lincoln Primary Care, New River Health Association, Valley Health Systems, and Wirt Health Services Association) and one academic medical center (Charleston Area Medical Center Family Medicine) formed a primary care network dedicated to finding creative solutions to community health issues. The WVACHS has been maturing from that point to include additional primary care systems, organizations, and researchers.
 
The group is a mixture of health care providers, health care administrators, and academic researchers. It was brought together by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission with funding support from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
We love our communities and state, find great value in our work, and feel confident that together we can make significant impact on priority health issues in our state and region.
