VESTAL (WBNG) — Binghamton University is planning construction for a new elderly care clinic in Johnson City.
The clinic is a collaboration between the University and Lourdes Hospital.
It will be constructed at the corner of Jennison and Corliss Avenues, just south of Main Street.
A current clinic is on the proposed sight, it will be demolished and this new easily accessible clinic will be constructed.
The center will help with walk-ins and those who make appointments.
The Decker School of nursing will move into a 130,000 square feet renovated Endicott-Johnson building near the Pharmacy School in Johnson City.
The move will create a health science campus near the hospital.
“So that we have a true health science campus near Wilson Hospital so the students can learn inter-professional education with pharmacy and with the employees of UHS and Lourdes,” said Mario Ortiz the Dean and Professor of Nursing at Binghamton University.
Lourdes will give medical providers five days a week in the clinic including medical staff, clerical staff, nurses and vaccines to provide their comprehensive medical care.
Supervised nursing students will be able to assist the clinic and gain experience to mold them into next generation medical professionals.
