Bridging Global Healthcare
Gaps with Telemedicine

We envision a world where every individual, regardless of their geographical location, has access to quality healthcare. Remote consults from medical specialists to local doctors can save lives and bring practical solutions to medical problems faced by patients no matter where they live.


Global Offsite Care is a US-based 501(c)(3) humanitarian, all-volunteer nonprofit formed in 2013. We work through Rotary club sponsored telemedicine projects which advocate adoption of telemedicine to reach the underserved with improved access to healthcare using the Internet. With the help of Medical Directors Dr. Gregory Pecchia and Dr. Mike Katsaros we provide accredited continuing medical education sessions and we promote team-based care linking doctors over the Internet.


In July 2012, President Gail Thomas of the Rotary Club of Sebastopol Sunrise announced an initiative to spread telemedicine using the approach that Dr. Gude, a local telemedicine pioneer, has used successfully in Northern California. Mikel Cook, International Chair for 2012-13, took on the challenge and has been joined by Rotarians from several other Rotary clubs to make telemedicine projects a success.

As more Rotary Clubs joined us in promoting telemedicine through Rotary club projects, we saw a need to establish an organization to coordinate the initiative that can provide continuity beyond the initial year and location.


Discover our extensive network of telemedicine projects worldwide. We plan to expand our reach to Pakistan, Lebanon and Kenya in the near future.


As we push boundaries and reach out to more underserved communities, we need your support more than ever. Whether it’s by donating or volunteering, every bit counts in our mission to improve global healthcare.
