For more than 30 years, the Health Wagon has provided free health care to people living in Norton and in Lee, Scott, Wise, Dickenson, Buchanan and Russell counties. It recently earned accreditation from an agency that assesses charities.

The Health Wagon has earned accreditation by the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, which evaluates whether nonprofits are well run and deserve donor trust.

The Health Wagon is a nurse-practitioner managed clinic that has provided free health care for more than 30 years to people living in Lee, Scott, Wise, Dickenson, Buchanan and Russell counties and Norton. It is also a partner in the RAM Clinic held each summer at the Wise County fairgrounds.

“I am so proud to let our donors and stakeholders know the Health Wagon has achieved accreditation from BBB Wise Giving Alliance. This was a very rigorous process but an important process to earn public trust in the nonprofit sector,” Teresa Tyson, executive director said in a news release. “We are committed to excellence in leadership, sound governance and financial transparency as it relates to mission-driven work at the Health Wagon.”
