YORK-Lackey Virtual Urgent Care, which provides free online medical care to those in need, is opening up services to all of Virginia. The program is offered through the Lackey Clinic, a free and charitable healthcare facility in York County that serves those who are uninsured.

“Our program is designed to provide easier access for people with immediate needs who do not have a primary care physician,” said Larry Trumbore, CEO of Lackey Clinic, in a release.

Anyone in Virginia can now schedule a virtual video appointment online with one of the volunteer physicians for an urgent but non-life-threatening condition. Although Lackey Clinic is located in Yorktown, the clinic can treat anyone virtually thanks to technology.

“The team at Lackey Clinic has set up a seamless telehealth platform and urgent care process that patients have continually said is easy to understand and use,” said Dr. Sadhana Rajamoorthi, who volunteers from her home in Vienna. “I volunteer on Wednesday mornings, and I will say it is one of my most anticipated times of the week. I enjoy having ample time to speak with patients and truly understand their health from a holistic perspective.”

Since patients are located across Virginia, doctors will refer them to the nearest clinic in Virginia’s network so they can follow up and receive regular primary care. Lackey Clinic is one of 60 free and charitable clinics across the state who are members of the Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (VAFCC). For more information, visit:
