(New York, NY – May 22, 2012) The Mount Sinai Medical Center (MSMC), in partnership with WESTMED Practice Partners (WPP), announced today that it will build a 75,000 s/f, comprehensive outpatient medical office in downtown Brooklyn.
Staffed by Mount Sinai’s primary care and specialist physicians, The Mount Sinai Brooklyn Heights Medical Group, (MSBHMG), a full service multi-specialty practice, will offer outpatient services including primary and specialty care, diagnostic services and urgent care.
The new office, which will occupy the 17th and 18tf floors of One Pierrepont Plaza, part of Forest City Ratner Companies’ MetroTech Center complex, is anticipated to open in January 2013.
“MSBHMG serves as a model for innovative healthcare.” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, president and CEO of The Mount Sinai Medical Center. “As a premier healthcare system that serves New York City, we are committed to providing people who live and work in Brooklyn with the full spectrum of coordinated, efficient, and high-quality outpatient care, all in one location.”
In addition to primary care services, MSBHMG will also include cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general surgery, hematology/oncology, nephrology, neurology, OBGYN, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pediatrics, plastic surgery, podiatry, rheumatology and vascular surgery. An urgent care center – available to treat urgent, non-life-threatening medical needs – will also be on-site to provide patients and their families with walk-in extended hour access to healthcare, seven days a week.
“Patients have been found to appreciate the one-stop shopping medical experience of an integrated multi-specialty medical practice.” said Simeon Schwartz, MD, CEO of WESTMED Practice Partners. “It is our experience that they like the convenience of a doctor’s visit that includes clinical lab testing and radiology services — all under one roof.”
