The Partnership Is Building Its First Campus in Bay Ridge
(March 14, 2013 – Brooklyn, NY) Maimonides Medical Center and ProHEALTH Care Associates, LLP, announced today that they will build and manage a comprehensive Brooklyn-based healthcare delivery network, starting in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
Staffed by Maimonides primary care and specialist physicians, the Maimonides ProHEALTH Brooklyn Medical Group, a full service multispecialty practice, will offer outpatient services including primary and specialty care, preventive and diagnostic services, urgent care and more.
Stretching the length of Bay Ridge, the network will link several existing physician practices with newly constructed facilities in the neighborhood, forming an extended campus. The Maimonides ProHEALTH Bay Ridge Campus is expected to open in July 2013; the partnership’s second Campus opening will take place in Park Slope by the end of the year.
"The Maimonides collaboration with ProHEALTH is all about taking care of people in Brooklyn," said Pamela Brier, President and CEO of Maimonides Medical Center. "We are committed to providing people who live and work in Brooklyn with a full array of superior outpatient care, local urgent and emergency services, and inpatient care when needed.”
In addition to primary care services, Maimonides-ProHEALTH will include local access to a wide array of medical and surgical specialty services for children and adults. 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. A full service advanced imaging and laboratory suite also is in development.
"Patients clearly appreciate the convenience of integrated medical services available on an ambulatory basis," said David Cooper, MD, Managing Partner of ProHEALTH Care Associates, LLP. "Brooklyn residents deserve to have their care delivered by exceptional physicians, with the support of advanced information technology that assures the highest level of patient care.”
