Elmhurst will soon be getting its first CityMD Urgent Care at 91-19 Queens Blvd., one of the most trafficked intersections in the borough. The facility will be open and ready starting in December of this year.
The Midwood Investment & Development, which owns the property, announced on Oct. 22 that the urgent care provider will be leasing 2,350 square feet on the ground floor and 2,250 square feet in the cellar.
“CityMD is very excited to extend its services to the Elmhurst/Rego Park community. With 11 centers in Queens, we strive to improve access to all New Yorkers and will continue to expand into key markets in the region,” said Dr. Nedal Shami, chief growth officer for CityMD.
The soon-to-be CityMD Urgent Care is located across the street from the Queens Center Mall —which receives more than 27 million visitors each year — and is right above the Woodhaven Boulevard Subway station which serves 20,000 passengers every day on the M and R lines of the subway. It was formerly a McDonald’s and a Duane Reade pharmacy.
CityMD was founded in 2010 by a group of emergency medicine physicians and works to better provide quality medical care in communities through convenient location. The company has so far treated over 7 million patients and has more than 115 locations in the greater New York Metro Area and Seattle, Washington.
Besides offering walk-in emergency medical treatment, CityMD Urgent Care facilities also offers vaccinations, X-rays, lab work, pediatric care and pregnancy tests.
