Rural Health Clinic

Providing Critical Care Close to Home

The Rural Health Clinic (RHC) program aims to improve access to primary care services for patients living in rural, underserved communities. At Hocking Valley Community Hospital (HVCH), we advocate for all patients to receive quality outpatient care and essential laboratory services.

As a certified RHC, HVCH follows a team-based approach that involves physicians collaborating with non-physician providers, including nurse practitioners, to ensure exceptional healthcare services for our patients.

Call HVCH at (740) 380-8000 for more information about the Rural Health Clinic.



Hocking Valley Community Hospital’s Emergency Department and Urgent Care are open seven days a week to provide the care you need, when you need it.

When should you visit Urgent Care and when should you go to the ER?

Who Might This Benefit?

To maintain the RHC status, our clinic is required to be within a shortage area. HVCH can offer face-to-face medical care for rural Medicare or Medicaid beneficiaries in need of medical attention.

Our patients’ health and wellbeing are above all else. We’re here to help you receive the quality medical care you need when you need it. When you need to talk to a professional, call us at (740) 380-8000 for information regarding appointments or availabilities.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening condition, call 911 or visit our emergency department open 24 hours, seven days a week.
