Unity Health System and Broadstone Real Estate Celebrate Grand Opening of New Medical Office Building in Greece

Unity Health System and Broadstone Real Estate, LLC (Broadstone) held a grand opening celebration today for Unity at Ridgeway—a 120,000 square foot medical complex located at 2655 Ridgeway Avenue in the Town of Greece. Second only to Unity Hospital as the largest medical complex in the Town of Greece, it is the largest construction project to be completed in Greece this year. Several health services provided by Unity have relocated to the facility, including:

•Unity Diabetes Center

•Unity Cardiac Rehabilitation

•Unity Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Ridgeway (formerly Unity Physical Medicine at Lexington, Unity Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center, and Unity Sports Medicine at Ridgeway), which has added aquatic therapy to its treatments, thanks to the addition of a state-of-the-art pool designed for patients recovering from stroke, traumatic brain, and other conditions

•Unity Spine Center

 •Unity Pain Practice

•Unity Neurology & Rehabilitation (formerly at Canal Landing and Unity St. Mary’s Campus)

•Unity Ob/Gyn at Ridgeway (formerly Unity Ob/Gyn at Canal Park)

Unity leases the office space from Broadstone. A large diagnostic imaging center operated by Borg/IDE Imaging PC PC will also soon commence operations in the building.

“Unity at Ridgeway allows us to locate several of our high in demand services in a state-of-the-art facility that is accessible and convenient to our patients,” said Warren Hern, president/CEO of Unity Health System. “This spacious medical complex is now home to many of the services we provide that were in need of larger facilities to accommodate the growing needs of our patients. We are pleased to partner with Broadstone Real Estate, and we thank Broadstone for its vision in constructing a top-notch facility."

 According to Amy Tait, CEO of Broadstone, “It has been a pleasure to work again with such a professional and responsive team. We are proud to have completed this significant project ahead of schedule and under budget.” Tait added that the building’s state-of-the-art and environmentally-friendly design will qualify for LEED® (Leading in Engineering and Environmental Design) certification with the United States Green Building Council. Engineering and design were provided by Bergmann Associates and Gardner Plus Architects, PLLC.

LeChase Construction served as the Construction Manager. M&T Bank provided construction and permanent financing with assistance from the County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency (COMIDA). The project development costs, including land, hard costs and soft costs, total approximately $28 million. As part of the agreement with COMIDA, Unity Health Services has committed to create at least 22 new jobs over the next three years.
