ROCHESTER — Clinton Family Health Center received an award of appreciation from the North Clinton Business Neighborhood Association during a ceremony last month.
Albert Algarin, the association’s president, and Mayor Robert Duffy presented the award Jan. 7 to staff at the center, which is located in the Upper Falls plaza. The center, which opened in 1998, is operated by Rochester General Hospital. According to statistics from city officials, the center served more than 3,400 patients last year and 60 percent of them were Hispanic.
In 2006, the center expanded its family-medicine services and began offering obstetrics and gynecological care for underserved Hispanic women.
"The staff at Clinton Family Health Center work hard every day serving the unique needs of the Hispanic community and it is always nice for them to be recognized for their work," Dr. Teresa Chang, the center’s medical director, said in an e-mail. "We believe that the delivery of high quality healthcare in a culturally appropriate setting not only helps our community but gives residents of the northeast area of Rochester a medical home that they can be proud of."
