NRVCS earns top ranking in latest “Best of Virginia” publication

By Mike Wade

New River Valley Community Services (NRVCS) was recently named the number one counseling or therapy practice in the Southwest Virginia region, based on voting in Virginia Living’s 12th Annual “Best of Virginia” Readers’ Survey.

According to publishers, more than 50,000 readers across the Commonwealth submitted votes via the survey. Southwest Virginia is among five different regions included in the voting, along with the Shenandoah Valley, Central Virginia, Eastern Virginia, and Northern Virginia. “Counseling or Therapy Practice” was one of the categories included in health services. The survey also provided readers an opportunity to select favorite restaurants, shopping, and recreational opportunities. The publication lists first, second, and third place winners for similar categories in each of the five regions.

This marks the first time NRVCS has been included in the publication.

“We are obviously delighted to be recognized in this manner – particularly since the votes were submitted by readers and members of our own community,” says James Pritchett, NRVCS Executive Director. “Earning the top ranking for our region is validation of the incredible work that our team does on a daily basis to enhance the lives of residents of the New River Valley. I could not be prouder of our dedicated staff.”

NRVCS, first established in 1969, is the public provider of behavioral health services for the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, and Pulaski, as well as the City of Radford. During Fiscal Year 2023, the agency provided direct services to more than 12,000 residents.

“Our goal is to be the provider of choice for the communities we serve,” Pritchett adds. “At the same time, we recognize that our success is made possible by the strong working relationships we share with many other providers and service agencies. That shared commitment to collaboration ultimately benefits those of us who call the New River Valley home.”

Virginia Living’s “Best of Virginia” 2023 issue is expected to be published and available later this month. You can access an electronic version of the publication by clicking here.
