By Alex Seitz-WaldCNNHealth care providers in a major hospital district in Virginia are now offering a service called “pre-existing conditions” that can help save lives.
They say it will allow people to stay healthy longer if they have a pre-existing condition.
The service was announced Tuesday by the National Health Center, which manages the health center at the University of Virginia.
The new service, called “Health Care Provider Outreach,” is offered to more than 1,200 local health care providers nationwide.
The network has more than 2,000 providers nationwide, according to the network.
The new service is part of a larger initiative announced in January called “Pre-Existing Conditions for All.”
The initiative aims to make healthcare more affordable and accessible to people living with pre-existing conditions.
The announcement came just days after two people died after being treated at the health facility.
One of the patients died from a drug overdose.
A second patient, who was not hospitalized, died from an illness and died a week later.
Both deaths occurred at the same time, and the hospital has yet to make a determination on whether the deaths were preventable.
The two deaths happened during the same week, the health department said.
A second new healthcare provider was announced in December to help prevent the deaths of patients who had been treated at a Virginia hospital in February.
The state’s health department is still awaiting a final report from the Virginia Department of Health and Human Services on the results of the investigation into the deaths.
