Jones Memorial Hospital Unveils New Medical Village with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

WELLSVILLE, NY — On January 31, 2024, CPL joined representatives from UR Medicine (UR), donors and members of the local community at a ribbon cutting ceremony commemorating a comprehensive third floor addition to Jones Memorial Hospital.

Established in 1921, Jones Memorial—an integral component of the UR health system since 2015—is a 49-bed acute facility offering an array of inpatient and outpatient services, such as primary, medical, surgical and critical care; infusions; rehabilitation; and obstetrics.

As part of the hospital’s long-term growth plan, UR collaborated with CPL’s Healthcare team to establish a new medical village, which would address the burgeoning population’s healthcare needs by increasing treatment options and eliminating the need for residents to travel long distances for specialized care.

As a result, the 14,000 sq. ft. expansion brings facilities for women’s health, family medicine, obstetrics, pediatrics and orthopedics under one roof, along with a new sterile processing department (SPD) and a static MRI tower spanning three levels of clinical space, which replaced a mobile station outside of the hospital. Additionally, the existing surgery department underwent renovations to incorporate four operating rooms and a procedural suite, and practical and aesthetic enhancements were also made to public waiting rooms and other support areas.

After a three-year construction period, the $25 million village’s ribbon cutting marked the end of the hospital’s third-phase modernization effort. Aligned with the New York State Healthcare Facility Transformation Program, the initiative reduces healthcare costs and improves access to services within Allegany County and beyond.

““The village not only offers more immediate care with reduced wait times, but also functions as a crucial link within the UR network—and an appealing recruitment hub for emerging medical professionals,” explained CPL Architect Jennifer Lachance, AIA, LEED AP, who served as Project Manager.

Funding came from a $17 million state grant, a $2 million capital campaign by the Wellsville community, donor contributions and a commitment of over $100,000 from the Jones Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.

Serving as Architect of Record, CPL worked alongside Pike Construction Services (Construction Manager) to plan and deliver the project.

The medical village officially began accepting patients on January 22, 2024.
