UR Medicine and the YMCA are teaming up to bring the first medical and wellness complex of its kind to the northeast. The center will be located at the Eastside Family YMCA in Penfield.

Crews broke ground on a $7-million expansion this morning. The two agencies say this partnership will allow them to bring new services to the community like on-site physical therapy, a two-story youth and family gym and expanded space for cardio exercise.

When work is complete in 2015, it will be one of the largest YMCA locations in the country.
