Virginia Cancer Specialists Host Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA)
On Thursday, May 4, Virginia Cancer Specialists (VCS) hosted Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) for a site visit at their Gainsville practice. VCS is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year and shared their story of advancing cancer care through a personalized, integrative, 360 degree team approach. Led by Dr. Geoffrey Moore, Dr. Samuel Lee, Dr. Jey Maran, Dr. Robert Marsh along with Practice Manager Shanna Hoosier, Nurse Manager Sofia Huttar, and Executive Director Elise Powers, the group toured the Congresswoman of the facility educating her on issues impacting community oncology.
Congresswoman Wexton was able to talk to staff and patients to gain a better distinction between community oncology and hospital health system owned practices. She was able to learn about site neutral payments, the upcoming enhancing oncology model (EOM), and community oncology in general.
As a member of the House Committee on Appropriations and House Committee on Budget, VCS shared the importance of value based care and their mission of providing superior value to their cancer care. The Network and VCS look forward to working with Congresswoman Wexton on these important issues impacting community oncology care.
