Dr. Timothy Ryan, Founding Physician of Lifecare Medical Associates, to Retire

On December 31, 2016, Dr. Timothy Ryan will retire after 45 years of his medical training and practicing medicine. In the letter to his patients, Dr. Ryan reflected on his career and his relationships with his patients, “It is difficult to say good-bye to your profession after 45 years. However, I am blessed to have you, my patients, as friends forever.”

Lifecare Medical Associates, P.C. was conceived by Timothy J. Ryan, M.D., in 1979, based on the philosophy that patients deserve convenient, comprehensive health care provided by professionals who truly care about the people they are treating. Lifecare has been providing complete family health services for 37 years. Lifecare Medical Associates delivered an integrated medical home concept to Seneca County and approached patient care in a comprehensive way with primary care, diagnostics, and specialty services all under one roof at 1991 Balsley Road, Seneca Falls, long before this was a more common practice.

In January 2015, two major regional health providers joined forces to deliver world-class healthcare services in Seneca County when Finger Lakes Health purchased Lifecare Medical Associates, P.C., from its founding physician, Timothy J. Ryan, M.D. Finger Lakes Health and Lifecare Medical Associates, P.C., brought together strengths of a convenient, high-quality family medicine care model together with a multi-specialty health system with the best in diagnostics, laboratory, rehabilitation, outpatient and inpatient care together to residents of Seneca County. This integration provides access to orthopaedic, general surgery, cardiology and other vital specialty services.

Dr. Jose Acevedo, President and CEO of Finger Lakes Health, recognizes Dr. Timothy Ryan’s longstanding commitment to his patients and the people of Seneca County, “Dr. Ryan’s unwavering dedication to building his practice, his vision and passion for innovative healthcare delivery in a rural community, and personal devotion to his patients is unparalleled. We thank Dr. Ryan for decades of service to our community and share our best wishes for his good health and years of enjoyment in the retirement he has so rightly earned.”

Lifecare Medical Associates’ five physicians and eight allied health providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants) remain with the practice and will assume care for Dr. Ryan’s patients. Lifecare’s providers include:
