CityMD, the leading urgent care provider in the New York metropolitan area, opened a new urgent care center in Springfield Gardens on Monday, March 29, that will mark the 15th location in Queens.
The new site, located at 130-30 Farmers Blvd., will support the emergency medical needs of families in Springfield Gardens and nearby communities with convenient weekday and weekend hours, as well as self-check-in kiosks. The new location also has on-site state-of-the-art technology, which includes X-ray and EKG machinery.
“Many residents of Springfield Gardens are already CityMD patients, having previously visited our 162-21 Jamaica Ave. urgent care center,” said Vincent Campasano, MD, chief operating officer, NY region. “We are proud to be providing the Springfield Gardens community with our patient-centered care in a new convenient walk-in location that features topnotch medical personnel to help battle the pandemic and assist patients with a wide variety of health care needs.”
Patients of all ages visit CityMD for many reasons, including treatment for upper respiratory infections, colds and flu, asthma, allergies, minor lacerations, sore throats, insect bites and rashes, among other conditions. On-site doctors can diagnose and treat pink eye, croup, minor orthopedic injuries and nosebleeds. Rapid testing for flu, strep throat, mononucleosis, UTIs and other conditions are also among available services.
With urgent care locations throughout New York and New Jersey, CityMD continues to offer three forms of COVID-19 testing at all locations: rapid, PCR and antibody testing. For more information regarding these COVID-19 tests offered at CityMD, visit the online COVID-19 testing FAQ. The Springfield Gardens location also offers a virtual line for patients in need of COVID-19 testing. This new process aims to provide a more convenient experience by eliminating the need to wait in a physical line outside of CityMD locations.
The latest CityMD urgent care center provides coordinated care through CityMD’s unique, centralized aftercare department. This expert team of doctors and clinical assistants helps patients coordinate their follow-up care, ranging from referrals to pre-approvals and other appointments. After visits, patients can also send bill payments, view their statements, update their information, and even submit questions through CityMD’s secure online portal.
CityMD has more than 140 medical centers across the New York metro area. Each CityMD location is staffed primarily by board-certified emergency medicine doctors. CityMD accepts most insurance. For the complete list of insurance options, click here.
