Delevan Health and Dental Center celebrates five years of service

Posted on: 08/25/2017

The Delevan Health and Dental Center celebrated its fifth anniversary Aug. 25.


The center’s staff, along with officials from Olean General Hospital celebrated the occasion with a pizza luncheon. The $1.4 million, 7,500 square-foot, center, at 38 N. Main Street, Route 16, Delevan, opened in 2012 to increase access to primary care and dental services to northern Cattaraugus County. Timothy J. Finan, president, chief executive officer, Upper Allegheny Health System and OGH, said establishing the center met a critical community need.


“We know access to primary care was and is a big issue in rural communities. Opening the Delevan Health and Dental Center gave residents of northern Cattaraugus County access to a full complement of medical and dental services,” Finan said. “At the time we opened the center, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services identified the area as both medically underserved and a dental professional shortage area, so it was clear there was a big need to be met.


“Clearly, the Delevan Health and Dental Center has been a huge success,” Finan said, noting that since the center opened there have been more than 23,000 medical visits and 37,600 dental visits. Earlier this year, the center also began offering full service laboratory services.

Primary care at the center offers two full time nurse practitioners, Elizabeth Printup, DNP, FNP-C and Peter Coggiola, FNP. Printup was with the center when it opened in 2012.


Dental care includes a full time dentist and dental hygienist and six dental bays (chairs). A new dentist, Andrew Tedesco, DDS, will be joining the center next month.
