UR Medicine | Noyes Health opens new Mental Health and Wellness Building
Friday, January 20, 2017
UR Medicine | Noyes Health announces the opening of a new home for Mental Health and Wellness Services at 9221 Robert Hart Drive in Dansville. The move to the new building consolidates services formerly available at 1 South Main Street and a second off-site location. The phone number for information and appointments remains the same: (585)335-4316.
The 7000 square foot building on 3 acres, a former GCC site, is at the corner of Main Street and Zerfass Road, and has renovated offices and consultation rooms for a full-time psychiatrist, 18 therapists and 2 prescribing nurse practitioners, as well as 2 art therapy studios, a conference room, and an observation room for training purposes.
With the new building comes a new name: Noyes Mental Health Services is becoming Noyes Mental Health and Wellness, encompassing a broadened focus to include preventive and holistic health initiatives. What hasn’t changed is the mission of making a profound and positive difference in the lives of those struggling with life's everyday challenges, as well as those with mental illness.
“The new Mental Health and Wellness facility demonstrates our continued commitment to the well-being of the communities we serve,” says Amy Pollard, UR Medicine | Noyes Health CEO. “Patient volume has almost doubled in the last 6 years. As the demand for mental health services in the region has grown, our staff has grown and we outgrew our old space. The new building is bright and spacious, and will allow us to continue to expand, if needed.”
The building renovation was in part funded by Noyes Health employees through “Dress Down Day” fundraisers, and the renovation work completed by Noyes Health engineering staff.
“Our new, airy building will help us continue to bring mental health issues out of the shadows,” comments Dr. Robert Whelpley, Mental Health and Wellness Services medical director. “We hope that our investment in the new facility demonstrates how much we value our patients and clients, and that we will treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve. “
