Unity Health System Opens New Location in Spencerport
Unity Health System celebrated the opening of Unity at Spencerport with a ribbon cutting ceremony on February 25, 2010. Three Unity services are located in the 21,000 square foot facility-- Unity Family Medicine at Spencerport, an ACM Medical Laboratory Patient Service Center, and Unity Dialysis Services at Spencerport, a new dialysis center with 16 patient stations. Unity at Spencerport is a new facility located at 5 Land Re Way, off of Big Ridge Road in the Village of Spencerport. Unity leases the medical building from Choice One Development.
“Unity has been a member of this community for a long time,” said Warren Hern, CEO of Unity Health System. “This new facility has state-of-the-art equipment that provides patients the best care available in a comfortable and modern setting. It allows our patients easier access to the health services they need and brings these services closer to home.”
Unity received Certificate of Need (CON) approval from New York State’s Department of Health to add dialysis stations to the area, in order to meet the growing demand for dialysis services in Monroe County and nearby communities. Unity currently provides dialysis services at the Unity Park Ridge and Unity St. Mary’s campuses. Both centers have seen an increase in demand for treatment, and are at or near capacity.
Unity Family Medicine at Spencerport has been providing primary care to patients in Monroe County and surrounding communities since 1989. The practice, which has over 10,000 existing patients, includes Elizabeth Feltner, M.D., Melanie Conolly, M.D., Patrick McGrath, M.D., and Matthew Wiza, D.O. The new facility allows Unity at Spencerport to accept new patients.
ACM Medical Laboratory has 36 sites throughout Monroe County and western New York. ACM Laboratory’s Patient Service Center in Spencerport collects samples for laboratory testing. _____________________________________________________________________________________ Unity Health System provides a complete network of health care services from the Unity Park Ridge Campus, the Unity St. Mary’s Campus in Rochester, and at numerous other sites throughout Rochester and Monroe County.
