BUFFALO, NEW YORK; October 31, 2005 - On October 26, 2005, officials from the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Corporation and area dignitaries participated in a news conference announcing the reopening of an all new Cleve-Hill Family Health Center primary care medical facility.

Medical staff members have been added to enhance and expedite service provides at the Cleve-Hill Center. Attending physicians Dr. William Fiden and Dr. Gregory Snyder are now on staff. Fifteen resident physicians from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine are now on hand on a regular basis. Dr. Barbara Majeroni is the Health Center's medical director. Other medical staff members include: attending physicians Dr. Alicia Lisak, Dr. Emmanuel Packianathan, Dr. Richard Pretorius, Dr. Antonia Redhead, and specializing in geriatrics Dr. Larisa Meras. Physician assistant Josie Caruana and nurse practitioner Theresa Winkelman, specializing in pediatric medicine, round out the medical staff to provide comprehensive primary care services for the entire family. Practice manager Maureen Miller, MBA, is responsible for overseeing the office and coordinating the expansion. Vice president Sanjay Chadha, MBA, oversees all ECMC ambulatory services.

Cleve-Hill Health Center new, more patient-friendly features include flexible evening and Saturday hours. The Health Center is now open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M., Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 8:30 A.M. to 8:00 P.M., and two Saturdays per month, from 8:30 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. A doctor is now on-call 24-hours each day. A nurse is available to answer patient questions by telephone. Same-day appointments for "urgent need" patients are now available. A triage nurse is now on staff to help evaluate illnesses, make treatment suggestions, and arrange emergency consultation (when necessary). The Health Center also includes new laboratory facilities on premise for patients with a prescription for blood work. The lab is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

The newly remodeled facility includes a significant increase in functional space.
