Fairfax County previously partnered with Inova Health Systems to provide care to uninsured residents at three Community Health Care Network (CHCN) sites in Merrifield (Fairfax), South County (Alexandria) and North County (Reston). On July 1, 2019, Neighborhood Health assumed operations of the Merrifield and South County sites, and HealthWorks for Northern Virginia assumed operations of the North County site. Fairfax County and Inova are working with Neighborhood Health and HealthWorks to assure a smooth transition and that patients continue to get the best, most compassionate care possible.
Neighborhood Health and HealthWorks are federally qualified health centers with years of experience providing primary medical, dental and behavioral health care to low-income individuals and families in Northern Virginia.
The goal of HealthWorks and Neighborhood Health is to facilitate access for current/active CHCN patients. Thus, current/active CHCN patients will not have to go through eligibility again before their first appointment with HealthWorks or Neighborhood Health. Patients are automatically enrolled with HealthWorks or Neighborhood Health and may call the existing number for an appointment, after July 1.
