GREENLAWN, NY —
The Dolan Family Health Center has been awarded an $857,000 grant from the New York State Department of Health Office of Primary Care and Health Systems Management to help with training medical residents.
The funding will allow the Dolan Family Health Center, operated by Huntington Hospital, to expand the scope of its resident training program, which includes residents from Huntington Hospital, Glen Cove Hospital, Plainview Hospital and Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, over the next three-and-a-half years. The Doctors Across New York Ambulatory Care Training Program will increase the hours family medicine, podiatry and ob/gyn residents can receive training and broaden their exposure to include behavioral health. In addition, the residents will also take part in monthly orthopaedic clinic sessions and learn about point-of-care ultrasounds.
"The residents who have trained at the Dolan Family Health Center speak highly of their experiences and we are elated to be able to expand this educational opportunity with the New York State Department of Health grant," said Joseph Volavka, MBA, senior administrative director at the Dolan Family Health Center.
The Dolan Family Health Center provides medical services for people of all ages and is a National Committee for Quality Assurance Level III Patient Centered Medical Home, the highest award given for a primary care practice.
