Two Loudon County, VA, clinics for the poor to consider merging

Washington Post, July 10, 2008

The Loudoun County, VA, Board of Supervisors has asked the operators of two clinics for low-income patients to consider collaborating more closely and perhaps merging in the hopes of improving healthcare for the county's poorest residents. The Loudoun Community Health Center and the Loudoun Free Clinic provide medical services to hundreds of uninsured and underinsured county residents each year. Representatives of the two clinics say that although they are open to the possibility of merging, it could have a host of unintended consequences that could weaken their ability to serve a growing need.
