Extended care hours offered at Golisano Center

Golisano Center exteriorPatients who can’t see their doctor during daytime office hours now have a new option – extended evening hours at the Golisano Center for Community Health.

The center offers convenient, personalized care for minor illnesses and injuries including colds, sore throats, cuts, strains, sprains, headaches and fever weekdays from 5 to 9 p.m.

All insurances accepted by Memorial Medical Center will be accepted and all patients will be served — including those who receive primary care services elsewhere, said Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center Chief Operating Officer Sheila K. Kee.

“This new service will offer real convenience to children and adults who need to see a doctor after daytime office hours,” said Kee. “No appointment will be needed and walk-ins will be welcome. If a patient already has a primary care doctor, we will update that doctor about his or her patient’s visit.”

The Golisano Center, located 533 10th St. adjacent to Memorial’s ER1 and Heart Center of Niagara, opened in May. The Niagara Falls Memorial Primary Care Center occupies spacious offices on the Center’s first floor and operates a full-time daytime practice. Patients will now be welcome there during extended evening hours.

“This will be an excellent option for people who need care for non-life threatening situations that don’t require emergency room treatment,” Kee said. “We are proud to be the first to bring this concept to Niagara Falls.”
