Wayne Memorial to Open Medical Office Building, Forest City
This spring, Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC) will open a new state-of-the-art Family Health Center at the site of the former American Legion Post 524 building at 100 Dundaff Street in Forest City. It will replace the current McAndrew Family Health Center in Vandling.

The over 5,000 square feet of new construction will include seven exam rooms, provider offices, a separate treatment room and facilities for laboratory services. The structure comes at a price tag in excess of $1 million, a worthy investment according to WMCHC Executive Director Frederick Jackson. The project also received funding from the Moses Taylor Foundation.

“The office space we are currently utilizing in Vandling does not have the physical capacity to meet patient demand and lacks adequate parking,” stated Jackson. “Additionally, because it is outside of Forest City proper it makes access difficult for patients without transportation.”

The physician at the current site in Vandling, David Tomazic, DO stated, “This move will be a good thing for the community.” The physician who merged his Forest City-based solo practice of 35 years to become part of WMCHC in January of 2017, added with a smile, “plus it takes my commute to the office down from seven minutes to four.”
