"We are proud of the medical home, and we are proud of Ellis Medicine for their work," said City of Schenectady Mission Executive Director Micheal Saccocio. "Its really spreading into the streets and inspiring people to have a healthy lifestyle."
Local programs including Bethesda House, SCAAP, Hometown Health and the City Mission of Schenectady will provide assistance to their community members through the home. For example, a SCAAP representative will be on hand full time at Ellis Hospital to help with those who need their services.
Other speakers at the event included Assemblymen Jim Tedisco, who talked about his own experiences with the work at the former St. Claire location, and Mayor of the city of Schenectady Brian Stratton who was thankful of the work by the men and women of Ellis Hospital and the use of the medical home.
