Guthrie Approved for Southport Medical Office

Elmira, N.Y. – The Southport Planning Board members approved Guthrie’s plan to build a 13,000 square foot new medical building near the Cedar St. and Clemens Center Parkway intersection.

“Guthrie is committed to community-based or neighborhood-based primary care in the region. This location allows for easy access for the patients of the current Pine City office and the community”, said Joseph Scopelliti, MD, President and CEO of Guthrie Clinic

The new facility will replace the Guthrie office on Pennsylvania Avenue, in Pine City that was established in 1988 in a modified residential home. Cost of the new building will be approximately $2 million. Plans call for the entrance into the new medical office to be located off Cedar St.

The new office will be staffed Robert Armstrong, MD; Thomas Gustafson, MD; Brent Ingerick, DO; William McClintic, DO; and Andrea Herman, PA-C.
