GARDEN CITY, NY -- North Shore-LIJ Health System announced the opening of a new 6,000 square-foot ambulatory location in Garden City to meet the medical needs of local residents, providing disease–focused outpatient specialty services, advanced medical imaging/testing and convenient access to high-quality physicians.
The new North Shore-LIJ Medical Group location, at 1001 Franklin Avenue, is anchored by cardiology http://cardio.northshorelij.com/ and internal medicine programs and is a continuation of the health system’s already impressive roster of inpatient and outpatient services throughout Long Island and the New York area. North Shore-LIJ is scheduled to open additional ambulatory care centers in Queens and Manhattan.
“The opening of North Shore-LIJ Medical Group in Garden City is in keeping with our strategy of locating clinical services in convenient locations in the communities where our patients live and work, rather than in our hospitals,” said Michael Dowling, president and chief executive officer of the North Shore-LIJ Health System. “We’re confident that both physicians and patients will view the Medical Group at Garden City as a vital resource for their community.”
Mark Solazzo, executive vice president and chief operating officer at North Shore-LIJ, noted that the clinical services being provided at Garden City were designed to meet the specific health needs of area residents, with the overarching goal of providing a superior patient experience. “Providing a superior patient experience means understanding the specific needs of each community,” he said. “Our responsiveness to patient, physician and community needs is paramount to delivering the best quality care.”
Mr. Solazzo said North Shore-LIJ administrators and physicians are also partnering with local organizations to best meet the growing health needs of the community through educational programs and health screenings.
In addition to providing comfort, convenience and quality under one roof, he said the Garden City location complements the North Shore-LIJ Health System’s existing inpatient programs and services. “In Garden City as with all our facilities, our goal is to offer greater access to care, meet the specific health needs of all residents of the community and replicate the high level of quality found in our hospitals to those receiving care in an outpatient setting,” Mr. Solazzo said.
