Mission & Vision

About The Foundation

The Culpeper Wellness Foundation became an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit when the University of Virginia Health System became the sole owner of the Culpeper Regional Hospital in 2014. The Foundation invests its time and resources in community initiatives that improve health in Culpeper, Madison, and Orange Counties. The Foundation operates the Free Clinic of Culpeper, Powell Wellness Center and PATH Recreation & Fitness Center. (Culpeper Sport & Fitness, which joined the Foundation organization in 2017, transitioned in 2022 to become part of the recreation and fitness center).

The Free Clinic of Culpeper delivers high-quality medical care to uninsured adults in Culpeper County.

Powell Wellness Center (PWC) helps individuals achieve physical and emotional well-being through regular exercise, physical activity, and medically integrated services. One of only two medically integrated fitness centers in Virginia, PWC was recognized as the Certified Medical Fitness Facility of the Year by the Medical Fitness Association in 2018. PWC hosts wellness programs for the community, and its aquatic complex serves therapeutic needs and offers aquatic fitness and member and community swim lessons.

PRFC, which opened in 2022, offers recreation and fitness opportunities for all ages in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. The center, the first of its kind in Culpeper, comprises 27,000 square feet of recreation, fitness, activity and amenity space. Recreation features include multi-use sport courts, and indoor batting cages. The fitness area includes top-of-the-line cardio equipment, strength and functional fitness equipment and exercise classes. Programs are available to community residents of all ages and income levels through drop-in fees, monthly passes, and membership.
