People who live or work in Genesee County will soon have access to everything from primary care and exercise studios to cancer screening and nutrition education services all under one, convenient roof.
Rochester Regional Health’s United Memorial Medical Center and GLOW YMCA recently broke ground on a $33.5 million Healthy Living Campus in downtown Batavia. The new 78,000 square-foot, ultramodern facility will offer comprehensive medical and wellness services for residents and support the health of local businesses.
“The GLOW YMCA and Rochester Regional Health Healthy Living Campus is a place for children, adults and families from all walks of life in our community to come together and improve their lives-spirit, mind and body,” said Rob Walker, GLOW YMCA CEO.
The Healthy Living Campus will feature 22 exam rooms and two medical procedure rooms. There will also be a drop-in child care center where families can safely leave their children while at medical appointments.
The new campus, which will replace the current GLOW YMCA, will also have a new indoor pool; group exercise studios; an adventure room play area for children; an innovative intergenerational room, where seniors, teens and families can use the space for different activities every day; and more.
“This is not the clinic of the past,” said Dan Ireland, UMMC president. “The Healthy Living Campus is the future of health care, where medical and wellness programs are integrated under one roof. It’s made possible through our community partnerships, and it’s helping patients get all the care they need and deserve in one place. Today is not a celebration of a new building or clinic, it’s the celebration of a community coming together to reimage health and wellness of the future and transform our downtown.”
Dr. McMillan noted he has always wanted to work in a hospital pharmacy, and he believes that completing a residency is the best way to continue on that path.
The Canton-Potsdam Hospital-owned portion of Cottage Street, Potsdam, will be undergoing construction work between Monday, August 15 and Wednesday, August 17, 2022.
