NOCHSI Expands Walk-In and Centralizes Weekend Services
3/20/2017

According to Tricia Peter Clark, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, “the added walk-in hours
have been very popular with an average of over 4,000 visits per month, including dental walk-in services
at the Pulaski Health Center”.

 Effective April 1, 2017 NOCHSI will be centralizing its weekend services at its Mexico Health Center.
Currently, NOCHSI provides Saturday and Sunday weekend services at its Pulaski Health Center and
Saturday hours at its Oswego Health Center. According to Daniel Dey, President and CEO, these hours
were not being fully utilized and were not centrally enough located for easy access for all patients
among NOCHSI’s six practice locations in Oswego County. According to Dey, “centralizing weekend
services at the Mexico Health Center each Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. allows NOCHSI to more
efficiently staff and fill available patient slots in a location that is centrally located to all patients”. Dey
continued that, “the expanded walk-in hours and centralized weekend services represent additional
efforts that NOCHSI has pursued, along with its aggressive provider recruitment to expand access and
convenience for it approximately 28,000 patients”. NOCHSI patients are welcome to visit any practice
location for walk-in or weekend services.
