Rochester Regional Health Brings Needed Services to Hornell Community

July 10, 2015

Starting this fall, Rochester Regional Health cardiologists, gastroenterologists, gynecologists, pulmonologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons will see patients in the Canisteo Valley Family Practice office at 111 Loder Street. Rochester Regional plans to offer additional services in Hornell in the future.

Together Canisteo Valley Family Practice and Rochester Regional Health providers will bring a full continuum of primary and specialty care to the families who live in Hornell and the surrounding communities. “Patients want easy access to specialists and tertiary care if they need it,” said Eric Bieber, MD, president and CEO of Rochester Regional Health. “Rochester Regional is happy to partner with the Canisteo Valley Family Practice, a group of physicians who have a deep and abiding commitment to providing families and patients access to excellent, high-value care close to home.”

“Working with Rochester Regional Health enhances our commitment to the community,” said Bruce MacKellar, MD president of Canisteo Valley Family Practice. “This relationship maintains our close ties with area providers and St. James Mercy Hospital, and ensures our patients will have greater access to specialized services.”
Canisteo Valley Family Practice and Rochester Regional will continue to accept the same insurances, and admit patients to St. James Mercy Hospital when necessary.
