HealthWorks for Northern Virginia

Winter 2017

What our patients are saying:

"Everyone here makes me feel so great, they really pay attention to all my needs. Nice place, nice people. Thanks very much." 

"My experience was excellent. Your kindness and charisma was also excellent. It was a pleasant visit. Thank you." 

"Having brought my mother to both locations since late Summer 2015 - your front desk staff show not only helpfulness,but compassion, they remain true professionals. I have gone to a number of clinics and hospital locations in my 47 years of work. Your staff seem to have a rare ability to understand a family member struggling to do the right thing in the care needed for a loved one who has suffered greatly at the hands of medical neglect and abuse overseas. I thank your organization for helping me give my mother the care she needs with the compassion and professional service we all deserve."

"My experience at HeathWorks has always been a very good one. The staff and doctors always make me feel welcomed and make my visit comfortable"

"I am very happy with the services they provide. Everything is perfect and I am grateful for their kindness."

10th Anniversary Celebration
On October 6, HealthWorks for Northern Virginia celebrated the beginning of 10 years of service in Loudoun County.  Gathering in our Leesburg health center, we recognized key individuals whose contributions and support have made our success possible over the years.  Those honored were:
  • Inova Loudoun Hospital and Patrick Walters
  • Cardinal Bank - Howard Rauner and Paul Beattie
  • Kristen Umstattd - Loudoun County Supervisor  (and former Leesburg Mayor) 
  • 100WomenStrong 
  • Bobbi Schaufeld
  • Lynn Rubin 
Phyllis Randall, Chair of the Loudoun Board of Supervisors, Tony Howard, President of the Loudoun Chamber, Amy Owen, Executive Director of the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties, and Jeff Clayton, President of HealthWorks' Board of Directors all provided personal stories and moving accolades about our ten year history and the impact we have had on thousands of Loudoun residents over the years.  
Loudoun Impact Fund Grant
We are honored to be partnering with Loudoun Hunger Relief (LHR), which has been awarded a very generous grant from the Loudoun Impact Fund to provide healthy food to our low income older adult patients. LHR will establish a satellite food pantry in our Leesburg center and our HealthWorks' providers, including our Registered Dietitian Marbella Moreno-McCarthy, will work with patients and provide them a "prescription" for the healthy food to then be "filled" by the satellite pantry.  This innovative partnership and co-location of services will help ensure that patients are able to easily access healthy food and also learn about the essential services provided by LHR.
ACA Enrollment 
Individuals in our community have options to find affordable, high quality health plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace. 
If you're interested in enrolling in a health insurance plan, but aren't sure where to begin, start with a call to one of our Certified Application Counselors at (703) 840-4699 for an appointment. There is no cost to meet with our counselors. 
Already enrolled in a Marketplace health plan?
If you currently have a Marketplace policy, you will need to re-enroll for 2017. It's important to update your information and review the new plan options that are available in 2017 to make sure you've chosen the right plan at the right price for you.
Almost everyone under age 65 must be enrolled in a health plan by the end of open enrollment, or pay a tax penalty. Open enrollment for 2017 ends January 31, 2017.
Kaiser Grant
HealthWorks is proud to announce it has been awarded a very generous grant from Kaiser Permanente. This funding will support our unique partnership with the nonprofit organization Cornerstones, in our Herndon center.  For the majority of our patients, factors including language, culture, transportation and challenges such as working more multiple jobs or unstable housing - all known as "social determinants of health" can negatively impact an individual's ability to successfully take care of their health. Even when they have a health home, as they do at HealthWorks, these challenges can interfere with their ability to find time to visit their provider, or get to the provider due to transportation issues.  HealthWorks is partnering with Cornerstones and its Connections 4 Hope Partnership Community Case Management, which is located in the same building as our Herndon center, to ensure that our patients who have chronic illnesses and are most likely to face these challenges will be able to work with the Cornerstones social worker to identify needs and develop solutions. The grant is supporting a nurse care coordinator at HealthWorks and a social worker at Cornerstones.
