Jones Memorial Hospital is expanding its collaboration with the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) through new neurology and cardiology services in Wellsville, NY. 

URMC neurologists Richard Welles, M.D. and Su Kanchana, M.D., Ph.D., and internist Linda Welles, M.D. began seeing patients at the hospital beginning December 3.   

Richard Welles is board certified in Psychiatry, Neurology, and Electrodiagnostic Medicine, and will offer on-site evaluation and treatment of neurological disorders. Kanchana is board certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, and specializes in treatment of adult movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Linda Welles is board certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics and specializes in gait and balance and geriatric disorders.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer neurological care to patients in Wellsville and beyond,” said Eva Benedict, CEO of Jones Memorial Hospital. “This collaboration between Jones Memorial and URMC will enable patients to access the necessary specialized care right here in our own community.” 

Southern Tier Neuromedicine, a group of Neurology and Neurosurgery faculty in several locations across the region, is part of a rich URMC tradition of providing outstanding care to patients in partnership with community hospitals.    URMC’s Neuromedicine programs were recently ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. 

Jones Memorial Hospital and URMC will also expand cardiology services in Wellsville. Imran Chaudhary, M.B.B.S., Jeanne Streeter, F.N.P., and Spencer Rosero, M.D. currently provide a range of cardiovascular services, including echocardiograms and electrophysiology services.   Chaudhary also performs cardiac procedures and provides consultation for patients at Jones Memorial Hospital.  

In January, they will be joined by Geoffrey Williams, M.D., Ph.D.  a behavioral psychologist who will provide smoking cessation along with cholesterol and blood pressure management.
