DULLES, VA. – StoneSprings Hospital Center welcomes Cynthia Benbow as the new executive director of Behavioral Services. Cynthia will oversee the new Behavioral Health Inpatient Unit and Outpatient Clinic, caring for people experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thinking, and behavioral health crises related to other mental health conditions. She will oversee a staff of psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health technicians, and licensed professional counselors.

For the past 20 years, Cynthia has served as the director of clinical operations at Research Psychiatric Center in Kansas City, MO. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. She holds a Master of Social Work degree and an MBA with an emphasis in Healthcare Administration.

StoneSprings’ Behavioral Health Inpatient Unit and Outpatient Clinic are being constructed within existing space on the hospital campus, resulting in 9,176-square-feet devoted to behavioral health care. Both are scheduled to open this fall.

“I’m thankful to join such a community-oriented team,” said Benbow. “Having both a clinic and inpatient facilities dedicated to mental health gives us the resources needed to assess and treat patients while keeping them close to home and the support of family and friends.”

“Cynthia has a long history of working in the mental health field to develop inpatient and outpatient evidenced-based treatment services,” said Nathan Vooys, chief executive officer of StoneSprings Hospital. “Under her guidance, we will address a recognized need in our community for more accessible mental health services.”
