Lifetime Health Medical Group on Wednesday opened a new office on the East Side, a part of Buffalo considered medically underserved.
The office at 1490 Jefferson Ave., where services include basic care for adults and children, will operate as an extension of the organization's William E. Mosher Health Center, 899 Main St.
Dr. Cynthia A. Ambres, president of the group, said, "Working together with our Mosher Center, we are bringing care to the point of need and making access to doctors easier for those in the neighborhood."
The new site also offers obstetric and gynecologic services. The Mosher Health Center offers services as after-hours urgent care, behavioral health, dentistry and radiology.
Plans for the office were developed with the support of the Near East Side Task Force, which has studied health needs in that area, officials said.
