Evergreen’s acquisition of Aspire of WNY’s Primary Care Practice is final
Evergreen Health announced its newest practice, located at 7 Community Drive in Cheektowaga, is now open. It noted the opening of Evergreen’s first Cheektowaga location is the result of its acquisition of Aspire of WNY’s primary care practice, and includes a new group of employees and the addition of 1,400 patients to its patient population.
"The availability of Evergreen primary and specialty care services in Cheektowaga is the result of two like-minded organizations coming together, to improve health outcomes and build healthier communities," said Raymond Ganoe, CEO of Evergreen Health. "We thank our partners at Aspire of WNY for their shared vision and support through the transition process. We welcome our new employees and patients to the Evergreen family, and I'm confident that patients old and new will receive the same high-quality and compassionate care they have come to trust and rely on."
The Cheektowaga site is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, and will offer primary care and podiatry services to patients living with developmental or similar disabilities, and the general community.
Evergreen opening its practice in Cheektowaga expands the organization's geographic footprint, which spans more than 10 total locations throughout Buffalo and the Southern Tier and now includes five primary and specialty care locations. Evergreen now offers primary and specialty care in Buffalo, Jamestown and Cheektowaga.
“We are fortunate to be able to partner with Evergreen Health,” said Renee Filip, president and CEO, Aspire of WNY. “Our primary concern is to ensure that the individuals seen at the clinic will continue to have premium health care from the same providers. Evergreen has shown they are committed to this care and have taken every step necessary, and more, to make this transition as smooth as possible for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
Evergreen is leasing the former 5,773-square-foot Aspire of WNY practice at 7 Community Drive in Cheektowaga. The adjacency of Evergreen’s practice to Aspire’s rehabilitation and other services within the building will help ensure ongoing coordination of patient care.
