Officials from Weill Cornell Medicine cut the ribbon on its new, multidisciplinary medical practice in Long Island City as part of the organization’s ongoing dedication to delivering exceptional care to patients.
The comprehensive practice, in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian, expands access to the institution’s leading physicians in Queens and offers a one-stop destination for some of the most in-demand specialties for adults and children.
The new 50,000-square-foot facility, located in The JACX at 28-25 Jackson Ave., is a major expansion from the original 50th Avenue location in LIC, which featured one pediatrician and one family medicine physician when the practice joined Weill Cornell Medicine in 2018.
The new practice will initially include seven physicians offering exemplary patient care in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology. Additional Weill Cornell Medicine specialists will provide services at the practice based on community needs.
A team of orthopedic surgeons from NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Queens will provide top-notch musculoskeletal care at the new location. Radiology provided by Weill Cornell Imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian will be joining the practice in early 2022 and will provide a full range of imaging services, such as X-rays, MRIs and mammograms.
“Not only will the new Long Island City practice offer comprehensive primary care services for the whole family in a rapidly growing community, it will also have other Weill Cornell Medicine specialists, expansive imaging services, orthopedic surgeons and sports specialists on-site,” said Dr. Adam R. Stracher, chief medical officer and director of the Primary Care Division of the Weill Cornell Medicine Physician Organization and an internist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. “The practice will provide exceptional primary and specialty care to patients in Queens in a location that’s convenient to them.”
Construction on the site began two years ago with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The office is bright, welcoming and soothing, and features murals in the exam rooms.
“It is a stunning, beautiful space,” Stracher said. “It’s state of the art. It has fantastic light and is an uplifting place for patients.”
Patients will also enjoy the convenience of several options to check in for appointments. They can use a smartphone or tablet device to check in electronically on an app before they arrive, use a kiosk on-site or speak directly to a staff member.
To meet a huge demand for orthopedic care, orthopedic surgeons were added to the new practice from NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Queens, according to Dr. Jeffrey E. Rosen, chairman of the Department of Orthopedics & Rehabilitation at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens.
“Musculoskeletal complaints are one of the most common reasons for visits to doctors, urgent care services and emergency rooms,” Rosen said. “We intend to provide full-service orthopedic care for the community and work collaboratively with the pediatric and adult primary care providers seeing patients at the site. We want to make it convenient for patients so they can have the ease of walking across the hall for all of their care.”
