Rochester Regional Health (RRH) opened last week an urgent care facility at its Geneseo Medical Campus, 4302 Gateway Drive, near the intersection of Route 20A and Volunteer Road. The Rochester Regional Health Urgent Care began seeing patients on March 14.

“We are excited to bring this level of care to Geneseo,” Dr. Bridgette Wiefling, executive vice president and chief physician enterprise office for RRH, said in a news release. “We strive to be here and ready whenever you may need us.”

The office is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. Entrance to the urgent care is made through the main entrance of the Geneseo Medical Campus. The office accepts a variety of insurances, according to Wiefling.

“It’s all part of our commitment to make sure you can get the care you need, when and where you need it,” Wiefling said. RRH, in the news release, said patients can “expect quick, quality treatment in an hour or less with access to Rochester Regional’s network of hospitals, specialists and primary care physicians if they need it.”


RRH opened the Geneseo Medical Campus in October 2021. The location offers a range of specialists in a single building, including endocrinology, radiology, neurosurgery, general surgery, pain management, orthopedics, and vascular surgery. The facility also brought previously existing RRH services operating in the area to the Geneseo site, including primary care, cardiology, dermatology and laboratories.

RRH said upon opening the campus last October that the outpatient setting is where patients receive the majority of their health care services. Previously, many rural patients faced long drives to find care, but that’s now starting to change as delivery channels evolve to include destination medical centers such as the Geneseo Medical Campus.

The Geneseo urgent care location is RRH’s 12th urgent care to open in the region, which also includes sites in Batavia and greater Rochester. The RRH urgent care is the second urgent care facility in Geneseo. UR Medicine | Noyes Health has an urgent care at Noyes Health Services, 50 East South St., Geneseo. The Noyes Urgent Care is open 9 am to 9 p.m. daily.

Noyes Health has offered a variety of services in Geneseo for more than 20 years. In addition to urgent care, medical services available through Noyes at its East South Street location include: lab and diagnostic imaging services, family and internal medicine, primary care, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, orthopedics, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, physical therapy, general surgery sleep medicine, urology and ear, nose and throat services.

Urgent care providers treat conditions that aren’t life threatening, yet need to be taken care of right away. Severe or life-threatening injuries are treated in an emergency department. Urgent care co-pays and fees are substantially lower than those charged by emergency rooms.

Conditions that are typically treated by urgent care provides include abdominal pain, allergies, allergic reactions, animal and insect bites, asthma, coughs and colds, diarrhea, earaches, flu symptoms, infections, minor cuts, lacerations and burns; nausea, rashes, sore throat, sports injuries, sprains or strains, upper respiratory infections, and urinary tract infections.

Conditions that should seek emergency care include chest pain, severe abdominal pain, sudden or severe pain, bleeding that won’t stop, breathing that is very labored, severe allergic reactions, head injury, stroke, seizures, loss of conscious, injuries sustained in a serious accident or other major trauma.
