A medical group in WNY downsizes with a loss of hundreds of jobs

12.28.17 | Traci Lynn Woolsey

Lifetime Health Medical group will cut nearly 500 jobs from its primary care offices in Rochester and Buffalo.

The move comes as ownership of nine locations is passed to UR Medicine and Rochester Regional Health in the new year.

The three Buffalo area locations will close at year's end.

Meanwhile, the six Rochester offices are expected to continue to see patients.

The new owners may replenish some of the lost jobs in the coming year.
