has opened a $7 million, 8,500-square-foot ambulatory care center in Queens. Northwell Health Medicine Specialties is located at 256-11 Union Turnpike in Glen Oaks, less than a mile from and will house the hospital’s primary care clinical services.
The practice is what’s known as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), a National Committee for Quality Assurance designation that recognizes primary care practices with a team-based health care delivery model to provide comprehensive care to patients, with a focus on continuous quality improvement for health outcomes.
The multispecialty care center offers a comprehensive range of medical services: internal medicine, dermatology, nephrology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, rheumatology and sickle cell disease. LIJ will relocate 37 employees to the new practice, led by 12 physicians. The facility will also extend LIJ’s teaching hospital program by including internal medicine residents and fellows from eight medicine subspecialties.
“This beautiful new practice will provide our community with the highest quality primary and specialty care all in one convenient location,” said , senior vice president of ambulatory services and deputy physician-in-chief at Northwell Health. “The space also creates a perfect environment to educate future physicians and nurses in team based health promotion oriented care.”
