On June 17, 2019, The Chautauqua Center (TCC) will open its doors to primary care, behavioral health and substance abuse patients at its new site, located at 107 Institute Street in Jamestown. The new building is near the intersection of
Harrison and Institute Streets in downtown Jamestown. TCC dental
services will remain at its other location, 110 East 4th Street (first floor) until early fall when the final phase of construction is complete. This summer, TCC officials will announce details for a community open house and grand opening celebration that will take place this fall.
The new 77,000 square foot facility has 42 medical rooms, 12 dental rooms, 13 behavioral health rooms, and a pharmacy. In addition, other ancillary services include women’s health, family planning, care coordination, group counseling, medical translation services, and nutrition education through Eat Smart Western New York. TCC is open for all patients regardless of their insured status, race, sex, language or age. It offers sliding fee discounts to low income individuals and families. Additionally, staff assists individuals to identify and enroll in available insurance plan options through the NYS Plan of Health Marketplace, including Medicaid and Child Health Plus.
TCC is a designated Federally Qualified Health Center and has been recognized as a leader in the provision of health care services in both Dunkirk and Jamestown. In 2017, The Chautauqua Center proudly achieved the designation of a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), reflecting its excellent track record of providing advanced primary care by taking the extra step for patients and those in the community. As a PCMH, the Center serves as a one stop shop that offers a large variety of services under one roof. This allows for improved communication among providers, streamlined services and greater access to care. TCC has a Board of Directors comprised of community members and patients that support its mission to deliver comprehensive, high quality patient-centered health and support services in the Chautauqua region. The Center’s service principles are access, treatment, education, and prevention delivered by friendly and professional clinic and administrative teams.
Since opening its first site in Dunkirk in 2013, TCC has grown and adapted to meet the needs of Chautauqua County’s population. At the end of 2018, the Center had served more than 9,000 patients at four sites with a team of 130 employees countywide.
TCC is always accepting new patients and offers same-day appointments. The Center is open Monday-Thursday 8am- 7pm and Friday 8am- 5pm. For more information, visit www.thechautauquacenter.org.
