June 10, 2021
Clinch Valley Health announced that Family Medicine physician Kenneth McVey, DO is joining Clinch Valley Physicians Associates and is welcoming new patients. Dr. Kenneth McVey is the grandson of the late Dr. James McVey who tended to generations of patients in the Richlands area for over 50 years.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. McVey to our team of talented providers,” said Peter Mulkey, CEO of Clinch Valley Health. “Dr. McVey grew up in Richlands and his passion for honoring his family’s legacy of serving the community through high quality patient care is evident from the first moment you talk with him. Dr. McVey’s connection to the community combined with his educational background and experience will be a valuable asset to our region and to our patients.”
“My grandfather was a family physician for approximately 50 years in town and my dad owned his own medical equipment company. The exposure I’ve had, through both my father’s business and my grandfather’s medical practice, has highlighted how medical care can significantly improve one’s quality of life,” said Dr. Kenneth McVey. “It’s very hard to go anywhere in Southwest Virginia without hearing stories of how my grandfather has helped someone. Simply put, my grandpa was and will always be my hero. The way he truly cared for others and put their health and happiness first will always inspire me. My goal since graduating high school in 2009 has been to return to Richlands and follow in my grandpa’s footsteps. It is the honor of a lifetime.”
