“Our Capitol Hill Healthcare Center has no waiting room, so patients immediately are escorted to treatment rooms and serviced from a centrally located provider workstation,” said Mike McVicker, AHF Regional Director, DC, Maryland, Virginia. “The goal is to maximize efficiency using this patient-centered model to improve health outcomes and increase retention in care.”


Currently, 11,904 District of Columbia residents (1.8% of the population) are living with HIV. The disease disproportionately affects Black residents who make up about 44 percent of DC’s population but nearly three-quarters of HIV cases.
