HealthWorks Opens in Leesburg ::: Care Regardless of Age, Insurance, or Ability to Pay

 

The Loudoun Community Health Center opened the doors of its new Leesburg building and began providing expanded health care services on Tuesday, October 23, 2012. In addition, the health center began doing business under a new name – HealthWorks for Northern Virginia.

The new building, located at 163 Fort Evans Road NE in Leesburg, was completed using an $8.7 million federal grant awarded in 2010. The funding enabled the health center to expand not only space but also the services it provides.  The new 27,000-sq-ft building houses a seven-chair dental suite, a pharmacy, mental health counseling rooms, 18 exam rooms, community meeting rooms and more. 

With a second federal grant awarded as part of the Health Care Reform Act, the health center opened a new site in Herndon on October 2nd, merging with the Jeanie Schmidt Free Clinic.  The health center also runs the Health Center for Children and Families in Sterling, a clinic primarily dedicated to caring for children.

“Now with three sites and the merge with the Jeanie Schmidt Free Clinic, our board wanted to bring this wonderful network of health care for those in need under one umbrella.  We decided that doing business under one name would accomplish this,” said Debra Dever, CEO of HealthWorks. 

Opened in 2007 using donated space at the Cornwall Campus of Inova Loudoun Hospital, HealthWorks has provided care to more than 12,000 patients, most of whom are low-income, uninsured residents of Loudoun County. 

Patients are seen regardless of age or ability to pay, whether or not they have insurance.  HealthWorks’ hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm, and Saturdays, 8:00am to noon.  For more information, visit their new website at www.hwnova.org.
