Neighborhood Health's mission is to improve health and eliminate health disparities in Alexandria and Arlington and Fairfax Counties by providing access to high-quality primary care regardless of ability to pay.
In 2016, because of your support, Neighborhood Health was able to serve 14,262 patients - almost 7,000 of whom were uninsured - through nearly 51,000 visits. It is only through the generosity of our neighbors - you! - that we are able to remain the medical home for thousands of patients in Northern Virginia. Thank you!
Each Neighborhood Health patient has a story to tell, like Sarah who sought care for her chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Sarah had recently lost her job and health insurance, leaving her unable to purchase medications or see a doctor.
During her first appointment, Sarah’s breathing was labored and it was difficult for her to walk across the hall. She had to stop every few steps to catch her breath.
Fortunately, our staff was able to get her the medications she needed through our Medication Assistance Program. Sarah’s symptoms are now under control, and she has a new job!
This year for Spring2ACTion:
We thank you for your generosity!
