About Us

LECOM Center for Health and Aging, formerly the Erie Center on Health and Aging (ECHA), is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It was established in 1974 to provide medical care and community preventive services and to serve as a convenient, central point of service for meals, education, recreation, socialization, and self-enrichment programs.

LECOM Center for Health and Aging maintains partnerships with other service organizations to provide outreach care and assistance to aging populations in resident facilities and fosters collaborations with other health care agencies directed at improving the lives of our aging community throughout Erie and its surrounding region.

LECOM Center for Health and Aging is located at 3910 Schaper Avenue . Parking is available in our parking lot located to the west of the building. You can gain access to the parking lot from either Peach or Fourth Streets.
