McCain Whole Health Care is a family medicine practice focused on deeply relational, person-centered care.

Dr. Arlene McCain is committed to creating safe spaces where health and healing can occur.

It’s only when we feel safe that we can touch the hurting places with love. And it’s only when we persevere in the hard work of re-integrating mind-heart-body-spirit that deep, lasting healing occurs.

Dr. McCain has created multiple safe spaces for others. These include:

McCain Whole Health Care

A safe space for patient healing. MWHC is a family medicine practice that offers holistic health care through the model of direct primary care. Patients have unique opportunities to develop a deep, long-term relationship with their doctor.

While the practice is currently closed to new patients, there is one (1) opportunity to win a free year of membership through the MWHC raffle supporting the 2022 Dancing with the Stars of the ‘Burg fundraiser (see details below).

Embrace Grace: New Medicine for a Wounded World

A safe space for inner healing. Dr. McCain’s award-winning book provides a glimpse into her journey of healing and invites readers to reflect upon their own healing journeys.

Physicians, Heal

A safe space for physician healing. Dr. Arlene McCain and Dr. Jason Asistores co-created this podcast to share stories of physician burnout and healing.

2022 DWTS-‘Burg

A safe space for community healing. Dr. McCain participates with other dancers in the final year of this fundraiser (check out this WHSV segment introducing the teams!) supporting the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Child Day Care Center (HRCDCC), which offers affordable day care to the local community. This fundraiser supports our community’s children and invites the larger community to come together for a common cause.

This year’s goal is to raise $200,000 toward the building fund so that this 51-year-old day care can move into a home of its own for the first time!
