UC Health to open downtown medical office

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Health is expanding its primary care services to Downtown Cincinnati with the opening of a medical office on Fountain Square.

Located in the US Bank Tower at 425 Walnut St., UC Health Primary Care–Downtown will open in January 2014 and will be staffed by Bernie Lenchitz, MD.

"Diagnosis and treatment for the entire family begins with primary care, and demand from primary care physicians has never been higher," says Myles Pensak, MD, CEO of UC Health University of Cincinnati Physicians.

"Cincinnati has a vibrant and growing downtown. By adding this central location, UC Health is able to offer easier access to primary care to those who live and work in Cincinnati's downtown core," says Pensak.

UC Health now has more than 75 primary care providers at 15 locations throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. In addition, medical office buildings in Columbia Township and Florence, Ky., will open in summer 2014. Both sites will include primary care practices.

Lenchitz received his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and completed his residency at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He is board-certified in internal medicine and is now accepting new patients for appointments at the Downtown location. To schedule an appointment with Lenchitz, call 513-475-8000.
