Greater Prince William Community Health Center Opens New Medical Facility in Dumfries

Affordable OB/GYN Services Start at New Health Center This Week

CenteredPregnancy classes available at Dumfries location of Greater Prince William Community  Health CenterWoodbridge, Virginia, Aug. 31, 2015 – Greater Prince William Community Health Center will open its third facility at 3 p.m. on September 2 at 17739 Main Street in Dumfries. By the end of the year, the Center will offer Primary Care, Dental, Behavioral Health and OB/GYN services. Until the full space is complete, the Center will only provide its OB/GYN services, including its popular CenteringPregnancy® program at the new facility. Patients can call 703-680-7950 or email info@GPWHealthCenter.org to schedule an appointment.

“We have only three exam rooms now, so we felt it best to introduce only one of our practices at this time,” said Executive Director George Barker. “We have seen a very large increase in prenatal patients this year, and Manassas Midwifery closed their Dumfries office. We can meet that need immediately while we ready the rest of the space. We encourage women needing prenatal care or other services to contact us now. Like our other centers, this will be a modern facility featuring the latest healthcare technologies and an integrated model that streamlines medical care for our patients.”

Currently, Dumfries has few medical offices, and there are a number of modest income families who could benefit from the Center’s sliding scale discount program, said Barker. He projects that the Center will provide 13,000 visits to 5,500 patients per year once fully operational. Most of these patients will likely be new to the Center, coming from the immediate area and North Stafford. “Most people living in North Stafford commute through Prince William, up I-95 or Route 1, to get to their jobs. It’s convenient for them to come here for medical care on their way to or from work,” said Barker.

The new facility is made possible by a New Access Points grant from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration. Greater Prince William Community Health Center was one of only two health centers in Virginia awarded such a grant in May. “It’s a testament to the quality of service that we provide to our patients,” said Barker. “As we grow and respond to community needs, we will pursue additional grants to ensure that all community members can receive the highest level of care regardless of their insurance coverage.”

In addition to accepting most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, the Center offers sliding scale payments for the uninsured and steep prescription discounts for all patients. More information on the Center’s services at its Woodbridge and Manassas facilities can be found at GPWHealthCenter.org.
