Gardner PLUS was retained by the University of Rochester Medical Center to be part of the team assisting with the renovation of the former Lakeside Hospital. The re-purposed facility called Strong West has now changed into an Ambulatory Health Center that provides outpatient services to the Brockport community. The project included what the Department of Health refers to as a free standing Emergency Department, the second such in New York State. It also includes an Ambulatory Surgery Center with three operating rooms, a large multi-purpose procedure room and a GI Procedure room, Prep and Recovery areas, Central Sterile support, Imaging Department, Pharmacy and Lab. All have been improved to bring the facility up to current Healthcare standards. Gardner Plus and our consultants are happy to be part of the planning team for this important URMC project at Strong West.
