Do you know that almost all (99%) cervical cancer cases are linked to infection with high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV)?
HPV is the most common viral infection of the reproductive tract. While there are many types of HPV that do not cause problems, a small portion of infections with certain types of HPV can persist and progress to cervical cancer. Thankfully, cervical cancer can be prevented, treated, and cured.
Contact Ritchie Regional today and get informed; get screened; get vaccinated.
*Underinsured or uninsured? Don't forget that RRHC in collaboration with the WV Dept. of Health & Human Resources, offers the Breast & Cervical Cancer Screening Program (BCCSP), which is a comprehensive public health program that helps uninsured or underinsured women gain access to breast and cervical cancer screening services. To learn more about eligibility for this program, please visit the BCCSP's website http://www.wvdhhr.org/bccsp/

Thank you both for all you do and the role you play within the company!
Ritchie Regional Welcomes New Medical Provider at Ritchie County School-Based Campus
After graduating from Marshall University with his Bachelor of Arts in Adult Fitness and obtaining his Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Marietta College, Lucas Henger is a board-certified physician assistant with over a decade and a half of experience in emergency and urgent care, practicing in and around Huntington, WV.
Ritchie County native, Lucas, is coming home to join the Ritchie Regional Health Center team. He graduated from Ritchie County High School in 2001. At RCHS, he was a member of the track, football, and quiz bowl teams. His wife, Patti, is from Blacksburg, VA, and the couple are excited to bring their two daughters back to Ritchie County to be brought up in the same community that raised Lucas.
“We are thrilled to be able to be so close to family and reconnect with friends. I feel very fortunate to be able to care for members of my hometown that cared for me during my formative years. I hope my family finally gets to see why, even after being away so long, I never stopped calling Ritchie County home.”
Lucas is currently accepting new patients at RRHC Ritchie County Middle School/High School Wellness Center, providing acute and chronic care services to individuals of all ages. To make an appointment, call 304-869-3650.
As a reminder, Ritchie Regional accepts most insurances including Medicaid and Medicare. The Sliding Fee Program - based on family size and income - is also available to uninsured or underinsured patients. For more information call/text 304-643-4005.
