Community residents were welcomed to Strong West in Brockport Saturday, May 6, to get a look at the recently opened multi-specialty suite on the third floor of the former Lakeside Memorial Hospital.

The space houses UR Medicine Heart and Vascular, GI, Sleep Medicine, Urology, and the Wound Healing Center.

The newly renovated space opened to patients in February and Practice Manager Nancy Wilson said each specialty is offered on a rotating basis during the week.

The suite features nine exam rooms and Strong West Administrator Bryan O’Donovan says the services offered at Strong West cater to the needs of community members.“It has been a huge transformation,” O’Donovan said of the renovation of the third floor.  “I couldn’t be more proud of how it came out.”

Carolina Marcus, M.D., specializes in sleep medicine.  “Patients are thrilled,” she says of the new multi-specialty suite.  “We keep hearing how much they appreciate what UR Medicine is able to offer.”

Both O’Donovan and Dr. Marcus point out that Strong West gives patients access to the same physicians who practice at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester.

In addition to touring the third floor renovations, community members were also invited to see the updated imaging suite at Strong West which includes state-of-the-art MRI technology, X-ray, ultrasound, mammography, DXA, CT and nuclear medicine.

The Orthopaedics and Rehab building on the Strong West campus was also open to visitors. It now includes Strong West’s podiatry practice. Doctors Ayaz Habib and Pearce Sloane said the practice moved from much smaller quarters at 80 West Avenue in Brockport to the Orthopaedics and Rehab building on March 1.

Both said the move means much more space for the practice and enables them to “move foward,” offering patients in the Brockport  community more resources from UR Medicine.
