Penn Yan gets new primary care clinic for same-day service at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital

Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital announced Thursday that Keuka Health Care and Pre-Emption Family Medicine have joined together to become Soldiers and Sailors Health Center.

The new primary care practice will be in the new office space on the second floor of Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital, located at 418 North Main Street, Penn Yan.

The practice will see patients of all ages, from newborns to geriatrics. All care is provided by highly credentialed physicians Dr. Robert Anderson, Dr. Eleanor DeWitt and Dr. Vy Le, as well as highly respected and experienced nurse practitioners, Patsy Ballard, FNP-BC, Wendy Hill, ANP, PNP, Robert Hoskins III, FNP-C and Kathleen Kirker, FNP-BC.  Board-certified family medicine physician Jeffrey Christenson, D.O. will be joining the team at the end of January.

The practice is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and provides same day appointments, electronic medical records and telemedicine visits. Soldiers and Sailors Health Center is committed to your overall health care needs.

“Bringing these two practices together under Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital will help to address the unique challenges of providing primary care in areas with a healthcare provider shortage,” Andre Forcier, Chief Administrative Officer for FLH Medical, P.C. said. “In addition to offering a multitude of patient services in one location, the model will help with provider recruitment and retention. Our goal is to achieve Provider-Based Rural Health Clinic designation, the gold standard for primary care practices in rural areas.”
