Olean General Hospital’s newest health center celebrated a grand opening today. The region’s newest health care facility will begin treating patients on Monday, August 20. The new $1.4 million health center, located in the Delavan Plaza at 38 North Main Street (Route 16), Delevan, NY, will offer primary care and dental services to residents in and around northern Cattaraugus County.
“Improving access to essential care is a priority and a commitment of Olean General Hospital”, said Timothy J. Finan, president and CEO of Olean General Hospital. “The Delevan Health Center delivers the convenience of close-to-home care in a new, modern and comfortable setting.”
The new center is located in the Town of Yorkshire, identified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as both a medically underserved area and a dental professional shortage area. “When we considered this opportunity it was clear to us that placing a health center with both primary care and dental services in the Village Delevan Health would respond to these delivery system deficits and significantly improve access to basic healthcare services for area residents. Mr. Finan said.
The Delevan Health Center occupies 7,500 square feet in the Delevan Plaza. Approximately 5,316 square feet has been reconstructed to create the center’s primary care and dental services areas, leaving just over 2,000 square feet for future use.
