About Us:

Imagine being a 26 year old, working at an $8 an hour job and owing $15,000 in medical bills. Or, having diabetes with no health insurance and trying to support a family of four on $24,000 a year.  There is no way to pay for medications and healthcare to stay well. It is difficult just to provide food and shelter. These are just two examples of need observed by two nurses working in Eastern Panhandle. Families were burdened by mounting medical expenses they could not pay for.  Most were not seeking care until their health situation was in crisis and then the used the emergency room. 

Recognizing the need, the nurses, the Eastern Panhandle Care Clinic (EPCC) began seeing patients one day a week in a space donated by Jefferson Memorial Hospital, completely staffed by volunteers. The number of patients grew quickly and it became necessary to expand to a larger space and to hire staff to supplement the volunteers enabling the clinic to open more hours per week. In 2002, a four year grant from the Robert Wood Johnson enabled the clinic to move to a 2400 sq. ft. facility on Route 51 in Charles Town. 

On July 2009, the clinic moved to its current home in Ranson, WV. Our building space has tripled and we are equipped to handle the growing number of patients that are in need of our services. Currently, 21 staff and many volunteers from the community who help us provide comprehensive quality medical care.
