SW Virginia Medical History

Health Focus’ Medical Museum

At Health Focus, we believe the preservation of medical history is an important part of understanding our past and our hope for the future in the development of improved technology and science for the medical field.

Health Focus serves as guardian of over 600 medical museum items, many already on display, including antique medical instruments, equipment, and pharmaceutical items. Items date from the Civil War. In addition Health Focus has several hundred items in storage for rotation with those on display.

Museum cases are displayed in the lobby of LewisGale Physicians, at 1802 Braeburn Dr. in Salem, Va., for public viewing.  We welcome you to come by and enjoy the collections!
