Olde Towne Medical & Dental Center Celebrates National Health Center Week

JAMES CITY COUNTY – Olde Towne Medical and Dental Center (OTMDC) will celebrate National Health Center Week along with health centers nationwide August 8 – 14. The mission of OTMDC, founded in 1993, is to assure access to quality health care to the residents and workforce of the greater Williamsburg community.

Community health centers provide care to people who disproportionately suffer from chronic disease and lack access to affordable, quality care. Centers like OTMDC lower health care costs to the tune of $24 billion a year, reduce rates of chronic diseases, and help stimulate local economies.

These centers look beyond the medical charts to address the factors that may cause poor health. Ongoing collaboration with hospitals, local and state governments, and social, health, and business organizations are imperative to improve a healthy outcome for the medically vulnerable.

A substantial list of medical services is available at OTMDC including full-service dental care, vision care, and mental health screening. In addition, a Medication Access Program helps patients receive necessary medications for free or at a low cost. No one is turned down for inability to pay.

OTMDC will celebrate National Health Center Week by giving out food boxes to established patients through its partners at the Peninsula Foodbank, inviting state legislators to tour its facility, and supporting its staff for the tireless work they do for patients.
