Center for Community Health Opens New City Home

The URMC Center for Community Health has a new home.  The Center, several community health programs, and about 30 employees have moved into a new home in the Rochester city core.  The Center takes up residence in the Eastman Building on 46 Prince Street.  The building was home to the University of Rochester’s science programs until the 1950s, when the campus was relocated to the banks of the Genesee River.

The move brings the Center and its programs closer to the population it serves.  It also creates an intersection of sorts in the city between the University and regional social services — the Red Cross and United Way are located next door.

You can read a URMC press release about the move here.
