Our Mission

Our mission is to provide affordable and comprehensive healthcare with quality services and strong community partnerships.

Johnson Health Center firmly stands against any racial and social injustices that so many people of color face in America today.

Johnson Health Center was named after Dr. Robert Walter Johnson, who was the first African-American physician to receive medical privileges at Lynchburg General Hospital. We currently serve over 25,000 patients in Lynchburg and surrounding counties with a team of healthcare employees who come from all over the world.

Community Health Centers were born out of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960’s and were centered on providing quality care and health equity for the oppressed communities.

As with the Civil Rights Movement, Johnson Health Center is committed to standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters as we continue to navigate these difficult times and invoke change. We will call out racial discrimination and injustice when we encounter it, whether personally or professionally, and extend our efforts in the healing process for the communities we serve.

We are committed to creating the safe, inclusive and healthy community we all deserve and will work to advance the conversations both locally, regionally and on the national level to assure sustainable progress.

We offer a reduced fee to patients who do not have health insurance.
