Upstate physicians break ground on new medical complex in Camillus
With a shovel full of dirt, physicians affiliated with Upstate Medical University, broke ground on a new medical complex at Township 5 in Camillus. The complex is expected to open next fall.
The single-story, 25,528 square foot is expected to include more than a dozen services, including a family medicine primary care practice; cardiology, pulmonology, rheumatology, pain medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, physical medicine & rehabilitation, urology, featuring women’s urology, ENT, vascular surgery and psychiatry/behavioral health.
The complex will feature a full radiology imaging suite, including MR and CT, and include a physical therapy suite. The complex also includes free on-site parking for patients.
The medical complex will be Township 5’s third-largest building, behind Costco and the Movie Tavern.
The faculty practice plan is comprised of all clinical faculty of the Upstate’s College of Medicine. Locating the practice within Township 5 will offer patient convenience to those who live or work on the west side of town.
Of the planned new medical complex, Lawrence Chin, MD, professor and chair of Upstate’s Department of Neurosurgery and chair of Upstate University Medical Associates, said, “This will allow patients to have access to not only primary care doctors, but specialists close to home.”
Township 5 is an open-air center that includes shopping, dining options, entertainment, medical offices, an apartment community and a contemporary hotel.
