uvaZION CROSSROADS, Va. (WTVR) – Rural counties here in Central Virginia are getting better access to medical care.

The University of Virginia Medical Park at Zion Crossroads opened this morning, and will serve residents of Fluvanna, Orange and Louisa counties.

The location is intended to help the university reach patients in outlying areas, who traditionally have to make long drives to get services, said Dr. Raymond Costabile, senior associate dean for clinical strategy at the School of Medicine, in an interview with the Daily Progress.

The 45,000 square foot space will offer primary, special, and surgical care.
