CENTRAL SQUARE, N.Y. — ConnextCare is looking ahead to this winter when the Oswego County health-care provider plans to open a new office in Central Square that will offer both primary care and mental-health services.

ConnextCare is the former Northern Oswego County Health Services, Inc.

The Central Square location will operate out of the Oswego Health Central Square Medical Center located at 3045 East Ave. Minor renovations are underway in advance of the opening in a few months, per its news release.

The expansion to Central Square supports ConnextCare’s ongoing mission to provide health care to Oswego County residents and surrounding communities. 

“We are excited to announce the establishment of a ConnextCare health center on this side of the county,” Tricia Peter-Clark, president and CEO of ConnextCare, said. “The addition of the Central Square practice further strengthens our ability to deliver high quality health services to new and existing patients at a location that is most convenient for them. We will now be more ‘connexted’ than ever before, with our network spanning across the entire county, providing a medical home for more than the 27,000 patients we already serve today.”

The move will “continue to strengthen” the ongoing partnership between ConnextCare and Oswego Health to work together in providing the community with accessible locations that offer a wide variety of services under one roof, the organizations contend. Currently, ConnextCare and Oswego Health jointly operate out of facilities in Pulaski, Fulton, Mexico, Oswego, Parish, and Phoenix. 

“Oswego Health’s mission is to provide accessible, quality care and improve the health of residents in our community,” Michael Backus, executive VP & COO of Oswego Health, said. “Our goal is to ensure the safety net of care in Oswego County, and we are always looking for ways to collaborate with other providers. We strongly value our partnership with ConnextCare and when they approached us about expanding their primary care in Central Square, we knew we had an opportunity that could benefit the community in that area.”

ConnextCare is a federally qualified health center currently operating six health centers and seven school based health centers throughout Oswego County offering primary care, mental health and dental services.
