Impact Statement

Neighborhood Health provides care for under-resourced, underinsured and uninsured individuals in Arlington County, City of Alexandria, and Fairfax County. We ensure access to high quality, comprehensive primary health care regardless of ability to pay. In 2023, we served 37,867 patients. Most of our patients are either uninsured (43%) or on Medicaid (43%). 48% of patients were living at ≤100% FPL, 98% of patients were living at ≤200% FPL.

In 2023, Neighborhood Health provided care to 2,575 Arlington residents. This number will increase this year with the addition of the 4,000+ children who are patients at Arlington Pediatric Center.

Neighborhood Health was recognized with these 2023 Community Health Quality Recognition awards for our high levels of clinical quality: Silver Health Center Quality Leader, Health Disparities Reducer, Access Enhancer, and COVID-19 Public Health Champion.

Two examples of our clinical quality measures as compared to the national average of all other community health centers are:

The breast cancer screening rate for Neighborhood Health patients was 63% in 2023, compared to the national average of 46%.

The percentage of Neighborhood Health patients with up-to-date childhood immunizations by the age of two is 62% compared to the national average of 40%.

How are charitable dollars spent? Where does my donation go?

Given the high-uninsured rate of Neighborhood Health’s patients – about 45% of all patients each year, we welcome the financial support of individuals, corporations, and foundations to help cover the costs of serving our uninsured neighbors. Donations are used to pay for the care of these uninsured patients.
