Rochester’s health care community has received one of the country’s largest grants to transform the way primary care is delivered in the region. The Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency says the $26.6 million dollar grant will create several new Care Manager positions at primary care offices across the region. WXXI’s LeShea Agnew reports the goal is to establish a more community based approach to health care that will  significantly reduce hospital visits and unnecessary costs to patients and providers.
