IJewish Senior Life affiliates with primary care practice of Dr. Zito

Jewish Senior Life (JSL) has announced its affiliation with MDVIP-affiliated personalized primary care practice led by board-certified internal medicine specialist Gene M. Zito, M.D., in Pittsford. 

This new partnership supports JSL’s vision to provide a full-spectrum of innovative, high quality, person-centered comprehensive health care services to individuals and their families in the Rochester region.

“Jewish Senior Life is committed to staying on the leading edge of services focused on helping people lead healthy, vibrant lives in the greater Rochester region,” said Michael S. King, president and CEO of Jewish Senior Life. “We are pleased to partner with Dr. Zito to expand our support to help the people we serve receive personalized, quality health care services, and access our full complement of services.”

Considered a provider of choice in the greater Rochester community, the addition of this practice will add a new element to JSL’s services, which currently range from a retirement community, assisted living, and long-term care, to community-based services, such as companion care, a physician-led house calls program serving housebound seniors, adult day programs, and daytime respite care for individuals with dementia. 

In 2011 Zito was the first physician in Western New York to open an MDVIP-affiliated practice offering an individualized, non-formulaic approach to patient care with an emphasis on wellness and prevention—a role where he now draws on his 45 years of experience in medicine to customize care plans for his patients.

 “I am thrilled to be affiliated with JSL, a well-respected, forward-thinking health care organization,” Zito said. “Together we will leverage the strengths of each of our organizations to elevate personalized primary care to the next level of excellence and enhance the quality of the individual doctor-patient relationship.”
