Wentworth-Douglass Expands Primary Care into the Rochester Area

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital and the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce celebrated the addition of Primary Care of Rochester to the community on September 21 during a ribbon-cutting ceremony and Business After Hours event outside the new practice at The Ridge Marketplace.

Primary Care of Rochester, a Mass General Brigham Healthcare Center, is an appointment-based primary care practice committed to providing primary care and preventative health care to the entire family from newborn to seniors. The practice opens to the public on Monday, September 26.

“Rochester has been, and continues to be, a part of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s primary service area. As a not-for-profit health care system with a mission focused on meeting the health care needs of the community, we saw a need for these healthcare services in the Rochester area and we’re proud to be here to help fill that need,” said Wentworth-Douglass Hospital President & CEO Jeff Hughes. “Our aim is to provide patient-centered care delivered with pride, that patients will recommend. We are pleased to be able to strengthen our ties to the Rochester community.”

Services offered at Primary Care of Rochester include routine checkups, physicals and health screenings, immunizations, and scheduled lab draws.

In addition, patients at Primary Care of Rochester also have access to the Wentworth-Douglass network of specialty and urgent care services, and access to additional specialized and subspecialized healthcare services at Wentworth-Douglass, or throughout the Mass General Brigham health care system, depending on individual needs.

“This is really an exciting time for Wentworth-Douglass. Rochester is our first location featuring our new Mass General Brigham/Wentworth-Douglass Hospital brand identity,” said Assistant Vice President of Wentworth Health Partners Melisa Bartlett. “As we continue to integrate with Mass General Brigham and all the services they help us provide to our local communities, we’re excited to bring those services here to Rochester.”

The staff of Primary Care of Rochester will include Jean Ball, APRN and Lori Wood, APRN, two experienced advanced nurse practitioners with strong professional ties to the Rochester area. Peter Janelle will serve as Practice Manager.

Approximately 60 local business leaders, state lawmakers and city officials came out to welcome Primary Care of Rochester to the community.

The practice is located at The Ridge Marketplace (92 Farmington Road, Route 11, Suite 9). The practice’s hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
