More than 100 years ago, Mary Washington Healthcare began as an eight-room hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Today, it has evolved into a not-for-profit regional system of two hospitals and 28 healthcare facilities and wellness services. Our Board of Trustees is made up of community leaders who serve in a volunteer capacity to guide our direction.
Our mission to our community is clear. Mary Washington Healthcare exists to improve the health status of all people within our community.
As a not-for-profit corporation, we invest our profits back into the organization through such activities as upgrading our technology, developing new services and hiring new staff. The result is continuous improvement in the scope and quality of care we’re able to provide to the community.
In addition to investing in our organization, we invest heavily in our community. Learn more about our community investments.
Finally, our not-for-profit status drives us to be the kind of organization that provides care to those in need, regardless of their ability to pay. We provide significant financial assistance.
Our financial status
Because of our not-for-profit status, we file reports with the IRS to demonstrate our income and spending. We also share this information with the public to demonstrate how we serve our community. We believe it’s important for you to understand how we’re investing in the community.
Infectious Disease Associates’ mission is to provide consultation for patients in our service area who have been diagnosed with complicated and complex infections that are often beyond the scope of primary care. Although the great majority of infections experienced during a person's life are brief and self-limited,an occasional long lasting or troublesome infection may occur and require the care of a physician. Should the problem then be identified as either difficult to cure or life threatening,our infectious disease physicians are consulted to provide additional diagnostic and treatment.
Our physicians specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. The infectious disease practice is designed to meet the needs of patients in the hospital and in the outpatient setting. Experts within the specialty work to identify and treat infections that arise from exposure to infectious diseases,or that follow organ transplantation and other surgical procedures.
Here at Infectious Disease Associates,we also practice HIV medicine. We have an interest in seeing that the general health of our patients,who may have associated conditions that impact their infection,is maintained.
Much of our work is done in collaboration with physicians in other specialties. We manage patients who require outpatient intravenous antibiotic therapy and assist in the treatment of blood and body fluid exposures in the workplace.
