EMU Health opened a new state-of-the-art facility last week that will offer high-quality health care on a local level.
“We’re bringing quality care to Queens,” said EMU chief clinical officer Efrat Yaish. “We’re now able to offer everything from the basics like pre-op and primary care to urology, women’s health, general surgery and orthopedics.”
Located at 83-40 Woodhaven Boulevard in Glendale in a former ambulatory surgery center, on-site lab work and a radiology department will also be part of the services.
Through a partnership with Mount Sinai, Dr. Joseph Tawil of Mount Sinai’s Cardiology Department, which is ranked ninth in the country, will be providing cardiac services.
“This partnership brings EMU another step closer to fulfilling my dream of bringing world-class medicine to the borough of Queens,” said EMU CEO and founder Daniel Lowy, “eliminating the need for residents to travel to Manhattan for the highest quality of care.”
EMU Health offers some of the most advanced equipment in the field, including one of just two 3D mammography machines in Queens.
“It’s so impressive when you take a look around here and see the technology aspect,” said State Senator Joseph Addabbo. “Anyone who walks in off the street looking for some type of medical help can get it here.”
