Jordan Health Center takes over Canandaigua clinic

Rochester Business Journal
April 9, 2013

The Anthony L. Jordan Health Center has taken over the operation of a Canandaigua clinic serving uninsured and underinsured patients from Thompson Health, Jordan and Thompson Health officials said Monday.

Formerly called Thompson Clinic at CCIA, the facility opened four years ago as joint project of Thompson Health, Canandaigua Churches in Action and Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes. Partly supported by an Excellus BlueCross BlueShield grant, it has provided short-term, non-urgent care to patients whom it helped connect to insurance and primary care providers.   

Renamed Jordan at CCIA as of April 8, the Canandaigua clinic would be able to broaden services as a unit of Jordan, Thompson Health president and CEO Michael Stapleton Jr. said.

Federally qualified health centers such as Jordan, which runs two multipurpose inner-city health centers in Rochester, are private non-profits that fall under special provisions of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Such clinics are charged with providing primary care including dental services to low-income and underserved families and individuals.

In addition to health care, Jordan at CCIA will collaborate with Ontario County agencies and church groups to help patients cope with non-medical problems such as homelessness, hunger, and inadequate transportation, Jordan Health interim CEO Janice Harbin Joseph said.
