Rochester Regional Health just took a big step toward making the St. Mary’s Campus — formerly St. Mary’s Hospital — into a comprehensive outpatient center for the underserved communities surrounding Genesee Street in Rochester.
The organization recently cut the ribbon for a renovated suite on the St. Mary’s Campus that will be the new home for three practices: Unity Pediatrics, Unity OB-GYN and Health Reach – Healthcare for the Homeless.
In the new location at St. Mary’s, patients of these three practices will be able to receive other important services — including lab testing, diagnostic imaging, the pharmacy and dentistry — under the same roof, and often during the same visit.
“We’re bringing these services together to make it easier for the patients,” explained physician Bridgette Wiefling, senior vice president of Rochester Regional Health’s primary care institute. “Being able to move these services together and co-locate them at the St. Mary’s campus has been our commitment at Rochester Regional Health to create a community asset, right here where people need it.”
The renovation modernized more than 11,000 square-feet of space at St. Mary’s. All three practices are moving from their original location at 819 W. Main St. and will have the ability to see more patients, offer new technology and provide easier access to important healthcare services in a safer and more comfortable setting. With convenient access to the RTS bus line and a free covered garage, it will be easier than ever for patients to get the care they need.
