One of Rochester's newest medical centers will be seeing their last patient on Thursday, August 27th.

This morning, I opened up my e-mail and got the sad news that MedExpress will be closing their Rochester location located at 5507 Chateau Rd. NW.  You can read the full e-mail below:

As your neighborhood medical center, we want to let you know about an important change taking place at our Rochester location (5507 Chateau Rd. NW).

MedExpress has made the difficult decision to close this location. The center’s last day of caring for patients will be August 27, however you can still access our high-quality, affordable health care from the comfort of home with MedExpress Virtual Visits. For more information about MedExpress services, locations and Virtual visits, please visit medexpress.com.

We have greatly valued the privilege of providing health care to you and your family. It has truly been an honor to serve our patients in the Rochester community.

I used to live near this neighborhood and remember when the streets were curved a little bit differently and was full of houses.  There were a lot of hopes and dreams to have a Walgreen's on the area that was cleared out, but as we can see today, that fell through.

We will now have another empty building in town, and honestly, we've got a few empty lots over there that could be filled with something amazing.  What business or place should go there next?  Dream big and share your ideas with me over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.
