Mount Sinai Health System today announced the opening, at the newly renovated Mount Sinai Union Square, of a state-of-the-art, full-service urgent care center, including pediatric care, which will feature daytime, evening, and weekend hours. The renovation of the facility and creation of the urgent care center are part of Mount Sinai’s transformation of services south of 34th Street, which will include a new Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital with a highly advanced Emergency Department, expanded and renovated ambulatory and outpatient services, more than 35 operating and procedure rooms, and an extensive network of physician practices with more than 600 doctors.
“The modernization and transformation of Mount Sinai Beth Israel is central to enhancing care and services below 34th Street, but it is only part of the larger vision we are implementing to provide the communities we serve with the absolute best care possible,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and CEO of the Mount Sinai Health System. “The health care model we are creating downtown will ensure that the community has access to the proper care they need, as well as to world-class specialists. Today, with the opening of Union Square Urgent Care, we are taking one step closer to building our unified, holistic network of services to serve the needs of the community today and tomorrow.”
“We are thrilled that the major expansion of ambulatory services south of 34th Street is progressing,” said Kelly Cassano, DO, Chief of Ambulatory Care at Mount Sinai Downtown. “At our new urgent care center, patients will have access to acute care services on an outpatient basis, many of which would otherwise require an emergency room visit. With primary care services and more than 30 specialty practices within the same building and a full-service emergency room a few blocks away at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, the urgent care center will bridge full integration of services for the patient.”
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
The newly expanded and enhanced Mount Sinai Union Square now features modern procedure rooms and upgraded technology. Some of the upgrades include a fully integrated electronic health record system, secure in-room video conferencing for consultations with specialists and other medical consultants, and a secure online portal called “MyChart” through which patients can access their medical records. Additionally, the renovated lobby enhances patient access and flow, and includes concierge services to help patients find their way.
