Mount Sinai Downtown Cuts Ribbon on New Urgent Care Center for Union Square
On Wednesday, October 4th, Mount Sinai Downtown welcomed community members to celebrate the opening of its new Urgent Care Center located at 10 Union Square East, Suite 2Q. The center boasts extended hours, seven days a week for access to unsurpassed patient care that is fully integrated into the wider hospital network, as well as in-house pharmacy.
Jeremy Boal, M.D., President of Mount Sinai Downtown and Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer of the Mount Sinai Health System, shared an overview of Mount Sinai Downtown's expansion and renovations to best serve the Union Square community. The superior transit access in Union Square also extends the new center's reach well beyond the immediate neighborhood in a hospital location that already sees 500,000 patients a year.
Urgent care facilities are an increasingly important component of community healthcare, ensuring that patients can receive high quality care when they need it and bridging the gap between primary and emergency care. The new center will help members of the Union Square district and beyond access convenient and timely care for a range of common illnesses and injuries.
Joining Boal was Dr. Kelly A. Cassano, D.O., Chief of Ambulatory Care; Assemblyman Richard N. Gottfried, Chair of the Health Committee for Mount Sinai Downtown; Wally Rubin, District Manager for Community Board 5; Claude L. Winfield, Community Board 6 Vice Chair; William Abramson of Buchbinder & Warren, Co-Chair for the Union Square Partnership; and Union Square Partnership Deputy Director Scott Hobbs.
Staff at the new center includes board-certified emergency medicine doctors from across the Mount Sinai Health System. If patients require additional treatment, physicians at the center can easily make referrals to expert services located at Mount Sinai Downtown through the integrated hospital system and can also share electronic medical records with physicians in and outside the Mount Sinai Health System. Access to additional specialties through telehealth, laboratory testing, and imaging services are also available on-site at the center.
The waiting room offers natural light through its windows overlooking the building's atrium, and a majority of exam rooms have windows along Union Square.
No appointments are necessary, and the Urgent Care Center accepts all insurance and offers direct payment options.
