Massey established the Family Wellness Center in 2005 to serve Massey families in southern West Virginia, recognizing that residents in rural areas often lack access to primary care physicians and health care facilities. The Family Wellness Center offers comprehensive medical services including lab work, x-rays and cardiac testing.
Massey’s commitment in this area grew out of our partnership with Marshall University School of Medicine and the Doctors for Our Communities program. Massey provides financial assistance to medical students at Marshall University with the goal of bringing more qualified doctors to areas in which we operate. If a graduating physician maintains a practice of primary care medicine for a period of at least seven years in that area, the loan is forgiven.
