Since 2007, HealthWorks has offered core health care services to primarily low-income underinsured and uninsured individuals, regardless of age or ability to pay in the Loudoun County area. As a community health center, HealthWorks provides comprehensive quality care to thousands of area residents.
The 100WomenStrong grant recipient is supported by diverse funding sources, including local government, foundation and federal grants, as well as local companies and individuals. This year, 100WomenStrong’s 2017 grant will fund a nurse Maternity Coordinator for pre-natal, post-partum, well visits and family planning services.
The position, which will support women through every step of the journey of creating a family, fits well into HealthWorks’ comprehensive approach to health care. The nonprofit health center creates one complete medical record for each patient that is accessible to all the providers – from dentists to primary care physicians – at the facility in Leesburg. Offering a wide range of supports in Leesburg makes it easier for patients who may not have transportation to see all their doctors and to have prescriptions filled.
“100WomenStrong has been a leader in the Loudoun community, supporting diverse and innovative programs that improve the health of our community,” said Carol Jameson, MSW, Chief Executive Officer of HealthWorks. “Our Maternity Care Coordination Program brings together a strong group of community partners, including HealthWorks, Inova Loudoun Hospital and the Loudoun County Health Department to ensure our vulnerable pregnant patients have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. We thank 100WomenStrong for its very generous support of this initiative.”
