UBMD Internal Medicine moves primary care to ECMC 

UBMD Internal Medicine’s adult primary care services that were located at 1020 Youngs Road are moving to the Internal Medicine Center at Erie County Medical Center as of Dec. 2. The Internal Medicine Center’s hours of operation are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Patients wishing to transfer their care to the center may contact a dedicated staff member at 716-898-4751. Regular primary care questions, post-transfer, can be directed to the general center line at 716-898-3152.

Erie County Medical Center provides strong outpatient medical services for Western New York, currently operating over 25 specialty centers, ranging from cardiology to orthopedics, and four unique primary care centers, including both family medicine and adult medicine. Radiology, laboratory, and behavioral health ancillary services are also offered on an outpatient basis, affording patients from throughout Western New York access to high quality care in a centralized setting.

“The transition of services provided by UBMD Internal Medicine at Youngs Road to the ECMC campus is an exciting opportunity to enhance the patient-centered experience,” said physician Ellen P. Rich, medical director of medicine at UBMD Internal Medicine. “Caring for patients while teaching resident physicians and medical students not only improves the continuity of care, but also helps to ensure that patients receive the most up-to-date approach. ECMC has made a commitment to creating a robust internal medicine practice on their campus and this partnership represents that goal.”
