DBT40 Honoree: William Albanese
Over the last three years, William Albanese has helped steer a start-up walk-in clinic into a multifaceted healthcare organization serving southern Delaware.
The Atracare CEO, working alongside his wife and co-founder Dr. Lindsay Albanese, recognized the need for evidence-based and technology-driven care in Sussex County, and aimed to provide accessible care to their community regardless of patients’ socioeconomic factors.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the same year Atracare was founded, the company took a leadership role in assisting with the call for vaccines, becoming the first “test-to-treat” facility in the state. Since then, tens of thousands of patients have been served by the Atracare team through its three locations in Lewes and Ocean View. Albanese’s mission is to help medical providers with the training and support needed to fuel their passion for healthcare.
Albanese wants Atracare to lead as an example within the local medical community in setting quality care for excellence in patient communication, patient treatment and technology-advanced services. He is proud of the care, compassion and service to the medical community in southern Delaware.
Albanese, who is a University of Maryland-trained pharmacist, oversees a staff of about 100 across the three locations and also serves as the chapter founder and president of Global Medical Brigades and as an active member of the Delaware Pharmacist Society.
Outside of his work, Albanese is an avid runner and a father of two who can be found spending time with his family at church or coaching his son’s soccer league.
