Letter: Lance Jones, StoneSprings Hospital Center

Editor: Patients across the commonwealth, and the country, share the frustration expressed in a recent letter to the editor highlighting the confusion around the in-network options for those covered under individual Affordable Care Act eligible health insurance plans in Loudoun County.

When StoneSprings Hospital Center opened our doors to residents in one of the fastest growing areas of Loudoun County, it became the first new hospital in the county in more than a century. It has been just under two years since we welcomed our first patient and a lot has changed in the health care market in that short time. One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to ensuring access to quality care for our community.

Many Virginians rely on the ACA Healthcare Exchange in order to access affordable health coverage and, as part of our ongoing commitment to our patients, we’re proud to serve in-network for an Exchange plan (Cigna) in Loudoun County.

Before StoneSprings Hospital Center opened in December 2015 to meet the growing need for local health services, many local residents traveled 30 to 40 minutes in all directions to reach a full-service hospital. We’re pleased to be celebrating our second anniversary caring for Loudoun residents and look forward to continuing to provide high-quality health care services and access to skilled physicians to alleviate the need for our patients to commute far and wide for their health care needs now and for many years to come.

Lance Jones, CEO
