Bertrand Chaffee Health Center Prepares for Grand Opening

Bertrand Chaffee Health Center is slated to open its doors to patients and the community on Monday, July 19. At that time, Bertrand Chaffee Primary Care will make its new home in the Health Center building at 210 East Main Street, directly adjacent to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital.

In preparation for the transition and grand opening, Bertrand Chaffee Primary Care will be closed on Friday, July 16. Should patients need to contact the Primary Care offices, please call 716-592-8140. All appointments on and after July 19 will be located on the first floor of the new Bertrand Chaffee Health Center building.

The construction of the new Bertrand Chaffee Health Center is made possible through an $11.3 million grant from New York State Health Care Facility Transformation Program, awarded to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital in 2017. This award is the largest in Bertrand Chaffee Hospital’s history.

This five-year investment by the New York State, enabled BCH to build the new Health Center Building to house primary care and provide specialty clinical space, acquire and install a permanent MRI machine, upgrade digital mammography to support 3D scans, purchase a nuclear medicine camera to support our growing cardiology department, and invest in a facility-wide electronic health record system.

“Bertrand Chaffee Hospital and Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home are vital community assets for Springville and its surrounding communities,” said Nils Gunnersen, CEO of Bertrand Chaffee Hospital.  “Investments in our campus strengthen the local economy and improve health outcomes,” he said. The New York State Department of Health recognizes our value and with their support, has enabled the construction of our new Health Center building. We are eager to begin seeing patients in our newest addition and to continue to ‘Keep Healthcare Local’ for our community members.
