There are two main hospitals in Virginia's Growth Alliance, Community Memorial Health Center, Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center, and Centra Southside Community Hospital in Farmville. Located in the town of South Hill, Community Memorial Hospital provides over 275 general beds for short and long-term care. Offering services in cardiac intensive care, nuclear medicine, physical therapy and radiology, this hospital provides 24/7 care while housing a nurse training program. Throughout the rest of the region local private and public medical practitioners exist to provide basic physical, dental, optical, and in-house care services. Additionally, Virginia's Growth Alliance is home to the largest rural training facility for residents in the state. The neighboring regions of Virginia's Heartland and Greater Richmond also have facilities and hospitals easily accessible to residents in the region.

Virginia's Growth Alliance is served by approximately 150 doctors and 50 dentists.

townThe highest concentrations of retail businesses and services can be found in downtown Farmville, downtown Emporia, outside the Town of South Hill, and on the "golden mile" - U. S. Route 58 east at the I-85 interchange. For a change from the large retail mall and service centers, the region offers its full share of traditional "Main Street" downtown districts in the towns of Blackstone, Victoria, Keysville, and Kenbridge to name a few. These areas offer a personal shopping experience through locally owned specialty hardware, clothing, book, art, crafts, and antique shops as well as cafes, bistros and other eating places.
