Our commitment to Martinsville and Henry County FROM THE HARVEST FOUNDATION PRESIDENT AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS CHAIRMAN: On September 4, 2002, Harvest Foundation announced its creation from the sale of Memorial Health System to Province Healthcare of Brentwood, Tenn. In the past 15 years, our creation has led to Harvest investing $104.57 million back in the community through nearly 250 grant awards to area nonprofits and local government entities. In a community of our size, that is an amazing feat. The Foundation was formed with the oversight of 13 members from the former hospital board who laid the groundwork for the successful organization Harvest is today.

Michael P. Haley, the Foundation’s first Board of Directors Chairman, said it best: “This organization is committed to enhancing opportunities for the citizens of Martinsville and Henry County. We believe ... the new foundation will allow the MartinsvilleHenry County community to reap the rewards of the hospital’s sale to improve our quality of life.” The Foundation has never wavered from that mission. We’ve worked to increase access and the quality of healthcare through the Martinsville-Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness. Through support of our schools, we’ve worked to increase literacy and educational attainment for all students in Martinsville, Henry County schools and Carlisle School. We’ve

increased the number of investments in our community through the Martinsville-Henry County Economic Development Corporation. We’ve improved our area’s amenities by partnering to create the Philpott Marina, expanded our outdoor opportunities with the Dick & Willie Passage Rail Trail, and we supported the construction of the Smith River Sports Complex. We’ve worked hard over the years, but without the dedicated community partners who work to improve our quality of life every day, we would not be here. We’re proud of our community, and we look forward to what the future holds. Sincerely, Paul R. Eason, MD, Chairman Allyson K. Rothrock, President

NEW RIDGEWAY OFFICE Construction is underway for Ridgeway Family Health, a new health center that will offer the same hours and services as BFP. The health center in Ridgeway will increase access to primary and behavioral healthcare for patients who live on the southern end of Henry County and provide some relief to BFP, which has seen increased patient loads over the past few years. 2016 ACCOMPLISHMENTS Accomplishments for the Coalition over the past year include: • Awarded a federal grant for nearly $1 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to renovate space and create a second service site in Ridgeway. • Completed a successful threeyear operational site survey with HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration) for BFP to ensure compliance. • BFP is recognized as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home ™ by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (ncqa.org). NCQA is a private, non-profit organization

• BFP saw more than 4,300 patients in 2016, a 12 percent increase from 2015. • Pink for the Week 2016, a three-day fundraiser event in which the Coalition partnered with Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County and Chatmoss Country Club, raised nearly $13,000 for Ladies First, a community breast health initiative. HEALTHY LIVING Nutrition classes are an integral part of the Behavioral Health program at BFP. Cindy Cunningham, a registered nurse and health educator, identifies patients who are uncomfortable making lifestyle changes. When appropriate, staff will assist patients in overcoming lifestyle challenges, setting goals, and improving personal accountability. With the goal of building a healthier community, several six-week sessions that focus on chronic disease and/ or diabetes self-management are held throughout the year at different community sites, including BFP and

classes held at the Martinsville-Henry County YMCA. She also visits with Cindy once a month. This patient has lost more than 100 pounds and returned to work after being out due to her health. Another one of Cindy’s patients continues to eat better and exercise regularly. After losing weight, he doesn’t get out of breath as easily, especially at his job, and finds mowing his yard an easier task. A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY The Coalition is moving the needle in our community when it comes to healthcare. Where the number of uninsured ranges from 16 percent in Martinsville and to 18 percent in Henry County, compared to the state average of 14 percent, BFP’s sliding fee scale is assisting more residents to access primary care services. Behavioral Health Services are available onsite, which assists patients who are unable to travel to Piedmont Community Services in Uptown Martinsville. These services increased 43 percent last year.

FeedTheNation helps clients become self-sufficient FEEDING AMERICA SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA & HENRY COUNTY FOOD PANTRY FeedTheNation is an application (“app”) developed by Adam Wright and Caleb Smith, initially for the Henry County Food Pantry. The pantry, a partner of Feeding America Southwest Virginia, distributes food to approximately 300 to 400 families each month. Food pantries generally are one of the first places people in need go to receive assistance, according to Wright.

Volunteers at the Henry County Food Pantry load vehicles with boxes of food during the pantry’s monthly distribution at the Historic John D. Bassett High School, located on Riverside Drive in Bassett. The pantry distributes food every third Wednesday of the month.
