Welcome to the official web site of the Center for High Blood Pressure, formerly Richmond Area High Blood Pressure Center. We are a nurse-run, free clinic offering health care services to the uninsured citizens of Greater Richmond. For more than 29 years, the Center has been preventing Strokes, Heart Attacks and Kidney Failure by detecting and helping to manage high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol among the uninsured population of Greater Richmond. The Center serves as a model for chronic disease management for adult patients.
The Center nursing staff, volunteer physicians and volunteer pharmacists see more than 900 different patients each year. Along with our community partners, we have been able to make significant improvements in the health of individuals who otherwise could not afford the care they need.
Recently, one of the Center's outstanding volunteers (Carol McClendon, PharmD) was recognized at Gayton Baptist Church. The video above was produced by Aaron Lee, the Church's Associate Pastor of Youth and Missions.
Close to starting!
All the necessary paperwork has been submitted to the City of Richmond, we expect very soon that permits will be available to begin construction. Check back on our website for weekly updates!
The Center's Board of Directors and our community partners are about to embark on a major renovation that will improve access and service options for current and future patients. Please contact Dave Baldwin at 804-359-9375 for more details and how you might help.
