Access to high-quality medical services is a prominent feature of the Louisa County community. The area is home to a number of practicing physicians and dentists, with specialists from neighboring Richmond and Charlottesville visiting on a regular basis.
The Louisa County Health Department offers a long list of public health services and programs at the Louisa County Memorial Medical Service Center. Additionally, Central Virginia Health Services, Inc. operates the Health & Wellness Center of Louisa in town. The facility recently renovated its space to add dental services.
Louisa County’s location between Richmond and Charlottesville places it within a short distance of even more high-quality healthcare options, notably two well-known teaching hospitals. Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Medical Center in Richmond is a leading academic hospital offering expertise in 200-plus specialties—many of which are nationally and internationally renowned. The University of Virginia (UVa) Medical Center is another award-winning healthcare option nearby. Located in Charlottesville, UVa Medical Center offers a range of noted services and programs, and is also equipped with a state-designated Level I Trauma Center. In addition to the hospital campus, the UVa Health System operates numerous other locations, including a clinic in Louisa that provides family and internal medicine, pediatrics, primary care and women’s services.
The area’s valued senior population is also well-served when it comes to accessing services and programs specific to their needs. The 90-bed Louisa Health Care Center offers long-term nursing care, while a local adult day care facility provides daily activities and respite for caregivers. Home-delivered meals are coordinated through this center as well. Plus, Louisa is home to the Louisa County Parks & Recreation Department’s Betty J. Queen Intergenerational Center, which successfully brings together the community’s youth with its senior citizens under one roof. Various activities are enjoyed here, with many catering to the needs of the area’s senior population.
