POWER OF HEALTH: Access, Quality, Growth, and Support

Johnson Health Center’s (JHC) impact is expanding in the Central Virginia region. Aligned with its mission to provide affordable and comprehensive healthcare with quality services and strong community partnerships, JHC has broken ground to build the new Amherst County Community Health Center.

This new health center will combine many current services including adult and children’s medical and dental, behavioral health, pharmacy with drive-thru, and provide a wellness center designed to facilitate nutritional education and physical fitness. This building will be approximately 22,000 square feet and will consolidate three existing Amherst County facilities into one larger facility.

Together, let’s support JHC’s Power of Health Capital Campaign to create a healthier community and enhance the quality of life for those who live and work in the Central Virginia region.

Access is Power

Founded in 1998, JHC is a non-profit, independent, federally qualified health center serving the City of Lynchburg and the counties of Amherst, Bedford and Campbell. The health center is governed by a board of directors composed of at least 51% of its patient population. Community health centers were created more than 50 years ago in order to increase access to healthcare in medically underserved areas. All insurances are accepted and reduced fees are offered to those who qualify financially. JHC is proud to offer comprehensive healthcare services to anyone seeking care in the community.

JHC’s approach to integrated healthcare provides a foundational support system for patients focusing on accessibility. The new facility will have twenty medical exam rooms, three behavioral health exam rooms, and eleven dental operatories.

Quality is Power

Focused on comfort and compassion, JHC gives each patient the best quality care available. Providers work with complex community needs requiring collaborative teamwork and innovative treatments.

JHC will continue to measure success under an integrated healthcare model in the new Amherst County Community Health Center. Multiple services under one roof will allow for better communication and collaboration, which will benefit patients and provide better health outcomes. JHC is looking to make a positive impact in the community and be a leader in providing quality healthcare.

JHC is focused on quality which is demonstrated in the results from the past year below:
  • 22.17% increase in pediatric BMI screenings
  • 35.64% increase in adult BMI screenings
  • 17.13% increase in pregnant women beginning care in 1st trimester
  • 10.88% more patients have controlled blood pressure
  • 12.87% increase in depression screenings
  • 5,502 more scripts filled through JHC pharmacy
  • 3,898 more home delivered prescriptions

Growth is Power

  2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 Growth Percentage
Patients   19,668   22,039   25,115   24,587   27,058 27,575 40.2%
Visits   68,189   78,822   95,578   87,542   98,640 98,616 44.6%

 

JHC provides services to over 27,000 individual patients with nearly 100,000 visits in 2022. Now, JHC is looking to expand service capacity even further as the needs of patients continue to grow throughout the central Virginia region. The expansion is projected to increase visits by over 15,000 once the new facility is fully operational. JHC will continue to build on its successes and expand access to healthcare with the construction of the new Amherst County Community Health Center due to open in 2024.

Support is Power

The new Amherst County Community Health Center has a financial commitment of $9.5M. Funds have been secured through local and national grant funding, JHC board of director’s restricted funds, and bank financing.

To make up the difference, JHC has launched its first-ever capital campaign in an effort to raise a minimum of $1M through charitable donations. You are invited to join us in participating in JHC’s Power of Health Capital Campaign to support efforts to provide affordable and comprehensive healthcare with quality services!
