JAMES CITY-Olde Towne Medical & Dental Center recently received a grant from Sentara Healthcare to support its Comprehensive Integrated Care Model for physical and behavioral health services and expand dental services and telehealth for appointments at the facility.

The $100,000 grant was provided in part to ensure greater access to behavioral health services for adults as well as children and their families. Olde Town Medical & Dental Center is one of the few providers in the area who offers services to uninsured and underinsured individuals in Greater Williamsburg.

A portion of the grant funds will also be used to expand dental services and provide for more telehealth visits for patients.

“Being the recipient of this grant greatly enhances Olde Towne continuing to be a viable health center for the vulnerable patients in our community,” said Olde Towne’s Executive Director, Aaron Thompson, in a release. “It is another prudent way that Olde Towne continues its mission of assuring access to quality health and wellness care to the residents and workforce of the Greater Williamsburg community.”

Olde Towne Medical & Dental Center, located at 5249 Olde Towne Rd., Suite D. For more information, call 757-259-3258 or visit its website.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
