Free clinics across the commonwealth are being recognized for their service Friday. Governor Bob McDonnell declared October 4 "Free Clinic Awareness Day" in Virginia.

This proclamation was also announced to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics.

The Charlottesville Free Clinic says even with the questions surrounding health care reform, they are focused on providing quality services.

 "I think everyone is focused on the unknowns and while there are a lot of unknowns, we're really focused on what we do know which is that our patients need our services today and that need isn't going to go away tomorrow," said Erika Viccellio of the Charlottesville Free Clinic.

There are more than 60 free clinics in the state.

Around 500 volunteers work at the Charlottesville Free Clinic to provide care for more than 3,300 patients.
