His fascination with the sciences at Furman sparked Dr. W. Marvin Hardy’s passion for pediatric medicine. Following graduation from Furman in 1991, the history major enrolled in Emory University School of Medicine. The College Park, Fla. native eventually opened Grace Medical Home in 2010, a nationally recognized medical practice for the poor and uninsured in Orange County. The College Park Community Paper spoke to Hardy about the practice, which will be moving into a new, larger facility in the coming year. He says, “A medical home is a hub, a home base. All faiths are welcome, all nationalities. The criteria is, if you are uninsured and low-income and live in the county, you qualify… Everybody’s welcome. We have 11,000 patient encounters every year. I see many who have never been to a doctor. Or they haven’t been in a very long time, so they come in very burdened. We try to slowly chip away at the problems they have been carrying.”
