PAINTED POST, N.Y. (WENY) – A new medical practice is now open in Painted Post.

Southern Tier Medical Care opened its newest Family Medicine Practice, located at 135 Victory Highway. This is the second Southern Tier Medical Care Office in the area, with the first being in Horseheads.

Southern Tier Medical Care is an affiliate of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton. The health system says it hopes the new facility will expand accessible care in the region.

“We’re hoping that the convenience of hours, the types of services and the cost of those services may be preferable to some populations,” said Chad Patton, Vice President of Network Development for Lourdes Hospital. “Because we are affiliated with Lourdes Hospital, we will be paying attention to the poor and vulnerable, but access to care for all populations is really the focus.”

The practice is currently accepting new patients. To make an appointment, call 607-240-2535.
