PEMBROKE – Pembroke Family Medicine’s three locations in Corfu, Alexander and Batavia are now operating with Oak Orchard Health. The Corfu location also has been named in honor of Dr. Mary E. Obear.

“Dr. Obear is the reason we’re here,” said Mary Ann Pettibon, CEO of Oak Orchard Health.

“She started this practice many years ago. It was her dream to bring primary care to this community and it grew to two more locations. We’re excited to welcome Pembroke Family Medicine patients and providers into our organization.”

All three Pembroke locations will remain the same and their patients will retain the same primary care provider. The only change they’ll see are the signs for Oak Orchard Health on the Pembroke locations in Batavia, Alexander and Corfu.

The change to Oak Orchard became effective on July 1. Both healthcare organizations provide services to everyone regardless of medical insurance status.

“I’m really moved by this occasion,” Dr. Obear said. “We’re so pleased to have found a partner in Oak Orchard Health. They align perfectly with our current model of practicing high-quality, patient-centered care. It has always been about our patients.”

Both organizations were recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as Patient Centered Medical Homes which focuses on improvements in quality of the patient experience, growing staff satisfaction, and reducing health care costs.

Oak Orchard Health was founded in 1966. It has grown from a migrant health project into an integrated health center with multiple locations providing health care services. Oak Orchard currently serves over 22,000 patients at locations in Albion, Brockport, Lyndonville, Hornell and Warsaw.
