Strong Health celebrates the opening of its new medical complex at Clinton Crossings. The building was constructed in an effort to provide primary care and other key patient services in convenient locations throughout the community. This location makes ambulatory services easier for patients to access; it is in close proximity to Strong Memorial and Highland Hospitals; and ample free parking is provided.

"This new, 54,000-square-foot facility provides space in which we can locate our system’s integrated services – such as cardiac rehabilitation or new primary care practices – in a convenient, community setting," said Jay H. Stein, M.D., Strong Health CEO.

The building’s first floor includes: two primary care practices; a cardiology practice; Strong Health Clinical Laboratory Collection Station; University Medical Imaging; and Strong Heart Program – Cardiac Rehabilitation Center, a blended program between Strong and Highland. Construction of the building’s second floor will be completed and occupied by Strong Health in July 1999, and will house more primary care services.

Formed in 1995, Strong Health is the integrated delivery system that includes Strong Memorial Hospital, Children’s Hospital at Strong, Highland Hospital, Eastman Dental Center and long term care affiliates, the Highlands at Pittsford and the Meadows at Westfall, as well as nearly 900 affiliated physicians. Earlier this year, the system received state approval to add Visiting Nurse Service to the list of Strong Health affiliates.

Anthony J. Costello and Son Development, LLC, built Clinton Crossings and several other medical facilities in the Rochester area.
