Did you know that Ritchie Regional Health Center has 8 campuses serving 4 counties in WV? You may have guessed from our name that Ritchie County is 1 of those 4 counties, but we also have offices in Doddridge, Pleasants, and Wood Counties.
Why are we called Ritchie Regional Health Center?
We were established in 1994 as part of a pilot school-based health center (SBHC) program located in Ellenboro, WV, at Ritchie County High School. The wellness center was such a success, that we decided to expand and opened another location in Harrisville, WV. Our Harrisville Campus has since become our main campus and serves as our administrative office. Due to the locations of the campuses, we chose the name Ritchie County Primary Care Association. For years we were known as Ritchie County Primary Care Association, however, as we continued to grow and open new locations in other counties, we decided to change our name to Ritchie Regional Health Center (RRHC).
Why are we revamping our logo?
We take tremendous pride in our origins, but too often people see, “Ritchie” and assume we only serve Ritchie County. That’s why we’re changing it up and emphasizing that we’re a health center providing healthcare services to the Doddridge, Pleasants, and Wood Counties’ communities too!
Besides an updated logo, has anything else changed?
We are still Ritchie Regional Health Center whose mission is to provide affordable, compassionate, excellent care that is close to home. However, there is someone very special we’d like to introduce: Ritchie, RRHC’s new mascot! Ritchie is cute, friendly, and here to help promote our services! Today is his official debut, but don’t be surprised when you see him and his family making an appearance!
As always, we’re here for you, your family, and your community -- and now Ritchie is too!
