Edward S. Barton Trust Awards $100,000 To MVHS Waterville Medical Office
The Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) Foundation was awarded a $100,000, 2-year grant from Edward S. Barton, Bank of America, N.A., Co-Trustee to assist in renovations of the MVHS Waterville Medical Office located at the Madison Street Business Park, 358 Madison Street, Waterville, New York.
In January 2019, the MVHS Medical Group consolidated its two Waterville Medical Office locations: Waterville Medical Office – West Main Street and Waterville Medical Office – Madison Street Business Park to all services taking place out of the Madison Street Business Park office. MVHS primary care physicians Mallory Sullivan, DO, and Michelle Rhymestine, RPA-C, will relocate to the Madison Street Business Park office from West Main Street and join the current practice of David Petrie, MD, and Nicole Schreck, FNP.
The new design and construction of the office will help improve the patient experience, office flow and offer an up-to-date, healing location for patients to receive care. On average, the Waterville Medical Office sees 813 patients a month and has roughly 9,700 patient visits a year. Providers treat newborns through adults.
“The Barton Trust is pleased to provide the MVHS Foundation with a $100,000 grant over two years to assist with relocating their clinic in Waterville so that local residents can continue to receive quality medical services,” said William H. Getman, Co-Trustee of the Edward S. Barton Trust.
The MVHS Foundation is grateful for the trust’s generosity.
“Our Primary Care Offices are the first line of defense when it comes to improving patient health. The providers and staff offer care for everything from infections to chronic conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure,” John Forbes, Vice President of Philanthropy for MVHS Foundation said. “Our goal with this new, combined medical office is to create a positive, quality, patient experience for residents of Waterville and the surrounding communities. We are very grateful to the Edward S. Barton Trust for helping to support this important project with their amazing generosity.”
