New York Hospital Queens acquired two additional practices in the borough this week, adding more primary care and specialty services to the hospital’s expanding network.

“NYHQ is committed to expanding access to primary care and providing easier access to specialty services. We are proud to bring these physicians on board to help protect and promote the health of our community,” said Stephen Mills, president and chief executive officer at NYHQ. “The hospital, through our physician group, New York Queens Medicine & Surgery P.C., continues to acquire and build additional practices throughout the borough.”

The practices the hospital gained were Bayside Primary Care, at 44-02 Francis Lewis Blvd., and Queens Diabetes and Endocrinology, at 59-45 161st St. in Flushing. Bayside Primary Care has primary care doctors and a cardiologist on staff. Queens Diabetes and Endocrinology offers treatment for patients suffering from a number of conditions, including diabetes and thyroid disease.

The hospital also announced it was adding 10 specialists to Whitestone Primary Care, at 14-02 150th St., and Maspeth Multispecialty Care, at 72-41 Grand Ave., practices which were already part of the hospital’s network.
