For Immediate Release
Virginians for Quality Healthcare to sponsor Townhall as part of Healthcare Solutions Week
Speakers include Dr. Jack Ayoub, Virginia Obstetrics & Gynecology, Leesburg and Reston and Arlene Jacovelli, CEO Community Care Clinic, King George, VA
CHANTILLY, VA, October 7, 2014 –As part of Healthcare Solutions Week, a week-long nationwide effort to learn from the experiences of ordinary Americans and to help them find solutions to our healthcare system’s continuing challenges, Virginians for Quality Healthcare (VQH) will host a townhall on Wednesday, October 15, 7:00-9:00 p.m., at the Burke Centre Library, 5935 Freds Oak Road, Burke, VA 22015. Speakers will be Dr. Jack P. Ayoub, Virginia Obstetrics & Gynecology, Leesburg and Reston, who will address “How the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is affecting doctors and patients,” and Arlene Jacovelli, CEO Community Care Clinic, King George, VA, who will discuss “Membership Medicine: Concierge medical service at a Costco price.”
“As enrollment in health insurance via the ACA exchanges begins next month, Virginians for Quality Healthcare thought it was timely to sponsor an educational townhall as part of Healthcare Solutions Week,” said Donna Hamilton, executive director of VQH. “Surveys indicate that there is a lot of confusion about healthcare today, and our speakers will assist in providing people with information that will help them in their healthcare decisions.”
Dr. Jack P. Ayoub was born and raised in the Northern Virginia area. After completing his residency as a chief resident at The George Washington University Medical Center, he joined a group practice. Realizing the difficulty of providing quality care in a large group, Dr. Ayoub started his own practice to provide the type of care that women deserve. Virginia Obstetrics & Gynecology operates as a boutique and quality practice while accepting insurance. That endeavor has led Dr. Ayoub to become one of Northern Virginia’s top obstetricians and an expert in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including AAGL prestigious COEMIG certification as one of the nation’s top gynecologic surgeons. He was nominated by his peers as the president-elect of the Medical Society of Northern Virginia for his empowering views for patients and physicians alike.
The local primary care practice in Arlene Jacovelli’s rural community declared bankruptcy late last year. Painful personal experiences had taught her the foolishness of trusting in government-run healthcare, and the imploding VA system, as well as the British government health system, informed her that it was not viable. She asked herself what a free market medical care solution would look like, and on February 3rd, 2014, opened the beautiful Community Care Clinic in King George, VA. It currently employs four doctors and a full staff of medical professionals and includes visiting specialists, a UAS allergy clinic, and a state of the art blood work lab that serves the community on an appointment or walk-in basis regardless of income, or insurance status. Jacovelli’s vision is to plant similar medical models in every Virginia community and eventually nationwide.
