"Virginia had the foresight 10 years ago to pioneer a public-private approach to increase access to primary healthcare for its uninsured by creating the Virginia Health Care Foundation. ... The foundation has furnished seed money and technical assistance to more than 170 locally based health initiatives that have provided free or low-cost medical care to nearly a half-million Virginians. ... At a time when all government spending is under the microscope, VHCF's ... approach stands out as an excellent model."
-G. Gilmer Minor III, chairman and CEO of Owens & Minor, in the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch
