Brock Hughes Free Clinic
450 West Monroe Street
Wytheville, VA 24382

Brock Hughes Medical Center was formed in 1995 by concerned community leaders to meet the healthcare needs of the uninsured, low-income residents of Wythe and Bland Counties. The clinic is named for the late Dr. C. Brock Hughes who was a much-admired member of the medical community. The clinic began operating with only volunteers and now, employs a staff of two full-time Nurse Practitioners and one part-time Nurse Practitioner, a Certified Medical Assistant, a part-time Pharmacist, a Pharmacy Technician, a Medical Receptionist, an Executive Director, and several community volunteers, including a volunteer Medical Director. BHMC provides the community with several quality healthcare services including primary care, ancillary care, prescription medications, health education, nutritional counseling, and specialty referrals. We also serve as a training site for registered nurse, nurse practitioner, and medical assistant students at several colleges and Universities, as well as, a community service site for WCC students who are seeking to fill their tuition waiver obligation. Major contributors to Brock Hughes, either directly or through in-kind support, are the Wythe-Bland Foundation, Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, Virginia Health Care Foundation, our local United Way, Wythe County Community Hospital, Wythe Eye Associates, Dr. Michael Spraker, Dr. Mickey Porter and numerous private donors.
