Private & Newly Renovated
We have intentionally located our Rochester facility in an office park among a variety of professional offices, including doctors, dentists, lawyers and insurance agents, so the reason for entering the business complex is unassumed.
Both of our newly-renovated medical facilities are clean, comfortable and professional. With updated, state-of-the-art exam rooms, STD testing lab and ultrasound equipment, we are equipped to serve the reproductive health needs of women in Western NY.
Additional exam areas afford our patients the ability to schedule same-day or next-day appointments and get the information and answers they need sooner than ever. Our capacity to serve 100% more clients allows our nurses to attend to each patient in an unhurried, personal, and caring setting.
CompassCare is located at 2024 West Henrietta Road in Rochester, NY. The facility is conveniently located in Brighton Campus Park, a professional office park situated just south of the U of R and just north of MCC. Brighton Campus Park is easily accessible by car or bus. It’s less than a minute from 390 and directly across the street from the West Henrietta and Southland RTS stop.
