Jericho Road Ministries and Jericho Road Family Practice have announced a merger to become the Jericho Road Community Health Center with offices on Genesee Street and on Barton Street in Buffalo.

This merger provides a more stable financial foundation and will allow the combined organizations to offer more comprehensive medical and nonmedical services to patients, especially the uninsured, those on Medicaid and other low-income individuals, according to the organizations.

Jericho Road has secured state approval to become a diagnostic and treatment center, and efforts are under way to obtain designation as a federally qualified health center.

Early this year, the parties completed renovations to their medical facilities, nearly doubling their clinical space.
