On Tuesday May 30th, the Delaware Commission for Women and the Office of Women’s Advancement & Advocacy formally recognized Dr. Lindsay Albanese and three other recipients during a luncheon at the Buena Vista Country Estate.  All four women were selected for the “She’s On Her Way Award” which recognizes talented young Delaware women leaders who are under 40 years old and have made significant contributions in the state.


Dr. Albanese was selected by the Commission for her continued commitment to increase access to healthcare for patients in Sussex County.  They noted her rapid response to this need, especially in specialties important to women: pediatrics, primary care, lactation counseling, mental health, and two urgent cares that are open 365 days a year.


Other initiatives that received accolades were her vaccine clinics at local schools, churches, and local events as well as her commitment to build and train young urgent care providers in their Lewes and Ocean View offices.


The luncheon was highlighted by a speech from Delaware’s First Lady, Tracey Quillen Carney, who gave an insightful look at Tina Turner’s life by highlighting the adversity women have to overcome and how they are stronger and better for dealing with their adversity head-on and not allowing others to dictate their own career path.


Dr. Albanse gave a speech thanking the Commission but ultimately thanked those women in medicine who came before her who helped pave the way for physicians like herself to be able to accomplish her goals. Dr. Albanese stated, “I always wanted to be the final voice for my patients. I co-found Atracare so that I have the resources to be a stronger advocate for my patients and for other women in need.” 


Dr. Lindsay Albanese is an Emergency Medicine Physician by training and is Chief Medical Officer of Atracare.  Atracare offers Primary Care, Pediatric, Walk-In Care, Lactation Consulting and Mental Health Services in Sussex County, DE.  Walk-In Clinics in both Ocean View and Lewes are open every day from 8AM to 8PM.  Known for being easy to access and get seen quickly, Atracare uses texting services to register patients.  Simply text: (302) 754-5697 for the Ocean View clinic or (302) 517-1385 for Lewes.  You can also book an appointment on their website at www.atracare.com.
