Jordan Center opens new urgent care facility

Rochester Business Journal
April 11, 2013

The Anthony L. Jordan Health Center plans an inaugural ceremony Friday to kick off the opening of an urgent care facility at its Holland Street facility.

A federally qualified health center, Jordan provides medical and dental care to Medicaid and to uninsured and underinsured low-income patients. It runs two inner city clinics in Rochester and one in Canandaigua. Federally qualified health centers are private non-profits overseen by the Department of Human Services’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Open seven days a week, the urgent care facility will treat walk-in patients with no prior appointment, a feature officials say will improve access to care for a population that does not always find it easy to schedule or keep appointments.

Also planned for the renovated ground floor space are radiology services, including X-rays and mammography. Funding for new mammography equipment is being provided by Highland Hospital and the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester. Highland’s radiology personnel plan to staff the X-ray and mammography services, which are slated to begin in July.

Among dignitaries slated to attend the Friday ceremony are Sen. Joseph Robach, R-Greece, Assemblyman David Gantt, D-Rochester, and

“Access to health care is a crucial component in the fight to break the cycle of poverty, and I am grateful that the Jordan Center is willing to play such an important role in that fight,” Rochester Mayor Thomas Richards said in a statement.
