LIVINGSTON COUNTY — UR Medicine/Noyes Health has agreed to a ten-year lease for Livingston County’s first six-station Dialysis Extension Clinic within Livingston County Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation (LCCNR) in Mount Morris.
Construction will start on the clinic around June 1 and dialysis services at LCNNR will be available by the end of 2018.
“Our highest calling as a health care provider is to design service delivery with the patient experience in mind and to meet or exceed expectation,” said Frank Bassett, LCCNR Director of Long Term Care. “This project is keeping with that tradition; quality of life for dialysis recipient’s resident in out nursing home just took a giant leap forward.”
The design of the clinic will be handled by Noyes and its architect, Labella. The clinic will be available for the Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation and the public. Priority will be given to LCCNR residents.
“It’ll be nice to have it here and not have to go out in the rain, snow, heat, or cold to get the dialysis I need,” said Carl Lowery, LCCNR resident. “I have been looking forward to this since the project was first proposed. I can get more sleep and just come downstairs when it’s my turn.”
Dialysis recipients residing in other nursing homes are encouraged to call Admissions coordinator Terri Brockington at (585) 243-7209 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request their name be placed on the LCNNR waiting list.
