About

OUR HISTORY

The E. A. Hawse Health Centers (EAHHC) are non-profit, federally qualified health centers located in Baker, Mathias, Moorefield and Petersburg, West Virginia.

In 1981, the Baker center opened its doors to the community, marking the founding of our commitment to meet the healthcare needs of people throughout Hardy County.

In 1992, E. A. Hawse Health Center started our School Based Health services with the Moorefield Elementary School. Since this time we have expanded our School Based Health sites to include Moorefield Elementary School, Moorefield Middle School, and East Hardy Early Middle School.

In 1995, Behavioral Health Services were added to the Hardy County School Based Health sites.

In October 1998, the Mathias site opened, providing medical and dental services for the Mathias community and the
neighboring area.

In 2003, Behavioral health services were expanded to include services at the Baker site for adults as well as children.

In June 2009, E. A. Hawse Health Center expanded its services into Grant County opening Grant Pediatrics and Internal Medicine on the campus of Grant Memorial Hospital.

In February 2010, E. A. Hawse purchased Wardensville Pharmacy and Baker Pharmacy making it possible to offer 340B pharmaceuticals to our patients at a deeply discounted rate.

In July 2010, E. A. Hawse Health Center once again expanded. It opened an office in Moorefield, WV in the Harold Michael building named Potomac Valley Family Medicine. This site provides primary care services to the Moorefield and outlying areas.

In September 2010, E. A. Hawse opened a dental office on the campus of Grant Memorial Hospital named Potomac
Valley Family Dentistry.

In July 2011, School Based Health services were expanded into Grant County by adding a site at Petersburg Elementary School and Petersburg High School.

In July 2015, E. A. Hawse moved their three office on the campus of Grant Memorial Hospital to a new location on South Grove Street called The Grove Street Health Center.

Since 1981 there have been a lot of changes, adding services and expanding the service area, making sure that Mr. Edgar A. Hawse’s vision of providing healthcare to the citizens of Hardy County and the surrounding area is done.

The E. A. Hawse Health Center, Inc., operates under the direction of a 15 member Board of Directors, which consists of dedicated community members who use our services and support our objectives to provide a non-profit, community-owned health care organization.

YOUR HEALTHCARE TEAM

E. A. Hawse is your health team. It is important that you understand that we will communicate and coordinate your care among our in-house clinicians. When necessary and with your consent, we will work with outside specialists and other health care providers regarding your health care needs.

We strongly encourage you to follow the plan of care you and your medical provider agreed to. At your request, a care manager may contact you between office visits to help you achieve your health goals. We will prescribe the best medicine at the least cost to you. We have on site pharmacy and patient assistance programs to assist you in getting the medications you need, regardless of your ability to pay.

Our clinicians do have electronic access to your medical records after hours. This is for your safety and to help the on-call clinician continue the plan of your care you initiated with your usual clinician. If you find yourself at the hospital or emergency room, we will make test results and office visit notes available to specialists/other providers to avoid repeating test/procedures. Let us know if you go to the hospital or emergency room or to any other clinician so that we can coordinate care goals on your behalf with them.
