“Thanks to the wonderful staff at BRMC for keeping us safe and healthy during a worldwide pandemic.

We are especially grateful for the vaccine given to our family’s 92-year-old great-great grandmother, Nanny Anne.

🦠💔💉✝️🌈👏oh happy day!” - Aunt Marty Ratliff Raleigh
I have filled out and completed the BRMHD Survey for those over 65 to be registered for a vaccination for covid once it is available. there was an indication that I would receive an email confirmation. At the beginning it said not to fill out the survey more than once. I never got a confirmation email, it was not in my spam folder either. What should I do?
Is monoclonal antibody therapy being offered by BRMC?
Thank You Blue Ridge Medical Center for Sponsoring our Fall Softball Team! Runner-Up for the Season! 🥎🥈🏆
I left a ring in the bathroom of the Blue Ridge Dental Center in Arrington Virginia on Thursday, August 8. It belonged to my grandfather and was his Coast Guard ring. There is a reward for any information leading to its return, and there will be no questions asked.

I can be contacted through this facebook profile or my email is [email protected].

Thank you! Please share!

(Facebook is not letting me upload the photo for some reason--it is a silver man's ring with a Coast Guard insignia on it)
I was excited when I got the card in the mail for dental services at Blue Ridge b/c my family is in the market for a new dentist. However I have learned this is not going to work for me b/c of your scheduling system. Leaving a voicemail for someone to call me back won't work! (I've called twice this week and can't speak to an actual person). I work in a busy hospital lab and my cell phone doesn't get good signal in the building. I have limited time to make phone calls and can't rely on someone being able to call me back to make appointments. Even if my phone does ring, I will more than likely be in the middle of something and can't walk away from it to access a calendar to look at dates. I'm really disappointed b/c we do really need a new dentist!

Why doesn't the dental clinic have schedulers like the medical side? I'm sure I can't be the only person who works full time and has limited time to make phone calls to schedule appointments.
how do you find out about job opportunities at the coming g amherst facility
amherst facility: what hours will be open an are there any part time nursing positions?
Looking forward to hearing this talk.
Are you closed today or Monday

A message from our Chief Medical Officer, Lois Alderfer, FNP

The COVID pandemic has affected us all in one way or another. This includes your BRMC family.

We are constantly needing to navigate:
--how to provide quality care to our patients
--while following CDC and OSHA guidelines
--while keeping our staff and patients safe
--with the provider resources that we have

Earlier this year we built our COVID cottage. This was our way of continuing to see our patients for chronic/health maintenance visits while providing care for our ill patients as well.

However, recently, with COVID numbers declining, we decided that the best use of our provider resources was to continue to see patients in our office. The few patients that had any COVID-type symptoms would need to be triaged to urgent care. This was not an easy decision, but what management felt was best for a majority of our patients.

We continue to closely monitor the COVID trends, and as new variants emerge and infections pick back up, we will most likely transition our resources once again to opening our COVID cottage. We are constantly re-evaluating the best ways we can serve our patients during this time.

BRMC is dedicated to providing the best care possible as we all journey this pandemic with our community.

We are here to stay in Appomattox!

We are excited to share that we have purchased a building that will become our permanent location for the greater Appomattox community. Our future home is located on Jones Street, not far from where we are currently caring for our patients in Triangle Plaza. We have some work ahead of us to make the space perfect for our patients, but until then we are always accepting new patients at our current office, and at any of our other locations.

We also took this opportunity to recognize the hard work and commitment of one of our own. Debbie Williams has been a familiar face at BRMC for 17 years, most of that time was spent helping steer the ship as COO, and was an integral part of bringing health care to Appomattox at the height of the pandemic. She retires this week and we want to thank her for her unwavering care and leadership. In honor of her service, we have designated the new building the "Debbie Williams Medical Building at Blue Ridge Medical Center". Thank you, Debbie. Enjoy your next adventure.
