Dansville Tri-County patients will have to remember to drive past the Reilly building instead of into its parking lot from now on.


Tri-County Family Medicine moved its offices out of the Reilly Building and into Brae Burn Professional Facility Oct. 1. It reopened Oct. 4.


When Tri-County was awarded funding through the state’s Heal 6 grant for expansion of primary care services and additional technology, the board looked into adding onto the Reilly building, but it didn’t seem ideal.


That’s when the offer to consider moving into the newly renovated Brae Burn Professional Facility came up. After inspecting its capacity, it “made more sense to develop space here,” Tri-County administrator Joyce Wheaton said. The Brae Burn facility also “afforded us to be able to design the space to our needs.”

The Brae Burn facility also “afforded us to be able to design the space to our needs.”


Inside the new offices, one immediately enters a spacious waiting room, and to its left, patients can enter a hallway that circles around back to the waiting room.


The rooms in the hallway consist of a record room, exam and treatment rooms, a break room, provider offices, utility rooms, an internal waiting area, a lab, a restroom and scale room.


“Everything here allows for a little more privacy,”?Laura Monterau, Dansville Tri-County office manager said.?“I think that’s very important.”


Monterau said the staff seems to be happy having the 2,000 square-foot additional space.


The new 5,800 square foot facility affords Monterau her own office for the first time, more room for the nurse’s station, a staff break room for the first time, plus a lab that’s three-times larger than previously.


Monterau said the move was a smooth transition, and both she and Wheaton gave a lot of credit to the architects and contractors for making it so.


Rochester-based Gardner Plus was the architectural firm; Rochester-based LeChase Construction was the general contractors and Ramsey Constructors helped with preliminary work.


The Dansville Tri-County office has 14 staff members, three physicians (Dr. Ayesha Tasaddaq began Oct. 4), and two physician assistants (PA’s). A third PA, Bridgette Quibell, will transfer from Canaseraga Nov. 1.


In addition, through the Heal 6 grant, Tri-County has recently converted its patients’ medical records onto a digital format. This allows Noyes Hospital or another Tri-County office to instantly access a patient’s medical records if needs arise.
