AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY), one of the largest primary and specialty care practices in New York, opened its new medical office in Jackson Heights on Wednesday, July 14, and a co-located EmblemHealth Neighborhood Care center, offering one-on-one support and free health and wellness classes.

“At ACPNY, we know that accessible and quality care is both life-affirming and life-saving,” said Dr. Navarra Rodriguez, president and chief medical officer at ACPNY. “That’s why we are so excited to provide a new home for health where the people of Jackson Heights both live and work.” 

The Jackson Heights office is located at 40-31 82nd St., and is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The facility, which is approximately 18,000 square feet, includes a full laboratory, accommodations for 25 doctors, primary care, pediatrics, behavioral health, endocrinology, OB/GYN and GYN surgery, optometry, podiatry and rheumatology. 

The Jackson Heights location reinforces ACPNY’s care approach in the communities it serves through more than 40 offices across New York City and Long Island. This location marks ACPNY’s ninth office in Queens — with other locations in Astoria, Cambria Heights, Flushing, Forest Hills, Jamaica Estates, Richmond Hill, Rochdale Village and Rockaway — that work together to bring comprehensive care to the community. 

With this new opening, all ACPNY patients in the borough will have easier access to specialty care provided by doctors and nurses who live in the community they serve and are trained in cultural competency.

The new facility is situated in the most ethnically diverse urban area of the world, as Jackson Heights has a population of more than 175,000 residents with over 80 percent of them identifying as either Latino or Asian.

AdvantageCare Physicians is part of EmblemHealth’s family of companies, which also opened a new EmblemHealth Neighborhood Care center at the Jackson Heights location. 

The strategic co-location of EmblemHealth Neighborhood Care and ACPNY is part of EmblemHealth’s commitment to addressing social determinants of health. In one convenient location, community members can access primary care providers and specialty care services at ACPNY, and find connections to community resources, such as food and housing, free wellness classes and customer care navigators who can answer questions about health benefits at EmblemHealth Neighborhood Care.
