Sayre, Pa. – Guthrie staff and local officials joined together today for a ground breaking ceremony to officially begin the construction of the new medical office facility in Southport, NY.
The 13,000 square foot facility will replace the current office on Pennsylvania Avenue in Pine City, NY, which has grown outdated and too small to fit the needs of today’s medical practice. The Southport building at the corner of Cedar Street and Clemens Center Parkway features 24 exam rooms and will offer better parking, more accessibility and space designed for patient privacy. In addition, the new facility will offer current technologies, like Guthrie’s electronic medical record system, which allows for coordinated care across the entire system.
Construction is anticipated to take 8 to 9 months and cost 4 million dollars.
Guthrie President and CEO Joseph Scopelliti, MD, said, “The Pine City office does not allow us to provide the best possible care to our patients. We have been looking to relocate to a better space for many years and our patients are anxiously awaiting a new, modern facility.”
The Pine City office sees 18,000 office visits a year and offers x-ray and lab services on-site. Providers at the office include four physicians and one nurse practitioner. All staff of the Pine City location will move to the new office including, William McClintic, DO, Robert Armstrong, MD, Thomas Gustafson, MD, Brent Ingerick, DO, Heidi Hodder, DO, and Andrea Herman, PA-C.
