The YMCA of Greater Rochester is joining forces with UR Medicine.
The collaboration announced Tuesday will give people increased access to UR Medicine programs and services at 17 of the area YMCAs.
There will be clinical programs to help patients manage chronic diseases as well as sports performance and injury prevention clinics.
"Instead of people coming to us, we will make programs available where more 100,000 already go for fitness, for childcare or summer camp," URMC President and CEO Mark Taubman said. "Services will vary at each location but all focused on helping people stay well."
The exclusive 11-year agreement will also involve having several UR Medicine physician practices located within YMCA branches.
