NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital celebrated the opening on March 15 of the Center for Community Health, a world-class ambulatory care center where leading specialists, working collaboratively under one roof, combine innovative clinical approaches and cutting-edge technology to provide exceptional, comprehensive care to the Brooklyn community.
The six-story, 400,000-square-foot facility, located at the NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital campus on Sixth Street between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue in Park Slope, is the first major ambulatory care facility built in Brooklyn in 40 years and the largest. The Center for Community Health elevates the patient experience to new heights, serving as a one-stop destination for patients to receive individualized, coordinated care from diagnosis to treatment.
The Center for Community Health offers a wide range of ambulatory care services, including oncology, digestive, and endoscopy services, as well as an infusion center, ambulatory surgery, diagnostic imaging center, and more. Multidisciplinary teams of physicians from Weill Cornell Medicine work together to consider each patient holistically, whether they are being treated for digestive diseases, cardiovascular issues, cancer, or other conditions, or coming for outpatient surgery, interventional radiology, or diagnostic imaging.
“NewYork-Presbyterian is dedicated to making world-class care more accessible, convenient and equitable in all the communities we serve, and the opening of the Center for Community Health is a reflection of that commitment,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. “The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for high-quality care close to home, and we are so pleased to expand access to our care and open this incredible resource for Brooklyn, helping residents spend less time in the hospital and more time living their lives.”
“NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital is committed to improving the health and well-being of the Brooklyn community, and the new Center for Community Health will provide seamless access to high-quality, innovative care, all in one convenient location,” said Robert Guimento, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. “Focusing first and foremost on patients’ needs and the delivery of outstanding care, this new building is designed for healing and represents the future of ambulatory care.”
