The University of Rochester Medical Center's Strong West has announced a plan to bring back workers that were laid off when Lakeside closed in April.
A total of 200 people lost their jobs when the hospital closed, but the URMC says they plan on hiring at least half of those workers back when they open the urgent care facility and even more when the emergency department opens.
The URMC plans to open up Strong West as an advanced urgent care center first, and as soon as they get state approval, URMC will transform that into an emergency department.
Strong West will also have a lab, radiology department, pharmacy and office space for doctors.
Members of the community tell News10NBC that they are happy to have a place to go nearby in case of an emergency.
