University officials hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 13, to officially mark the completion of the Ambulatory Center at the Medical Center. Construction of that project began in April 1994.
The Ambulatory Center is “consistent with our strategic plan for maintaining excellent facilities for the care of our patients and for strengthening the linkages to our community-based, primary care faculty and referring physicians,” said Jay H. Stein, senior vice president and vice provost for health affairs.
The new building — 222,642 square feet of state-of-the-art outpatient facilities — “will enable the hospital to stay ahead of the changes in health-care provision,” said hospital chief executive officer Leo P. Brideau. “As we see a shift from an inpatient to outpatient setting, this community can look to Strong Memorial Hospital with its new Ambulatory Center to provide the highest quality care in Upstate New York.
”Combined with the hospital’s new parking garage and lobby, the seven-story center offers convenience and easy access. The new building houses a wide variety of primary and specialty care services, most of which have moved from facilities within the hospital or from leased facilities and office space in the community.
The outpatient programs and services in the Ambulatory Center and throughout the Medical Center are run by Randolph B. Schiffer, director; Betsy Slavinskas, associate nursing director; and Pamela A. Urban, associate administrative director.
