Health Care

Reimagining health care in Appalachia.

The Cardinal Institute aspires to create a future in West Virginia where our people can readily access the health care they need and desire at a lower cost through markets, not regulation.

Our efforts towards health care reform focus on individuals over government, paving the way for increases in coverage capabilities, quality of care, and the health of our state through free, open competition among providers.
