Queens Has The Best 21st Century Health Care

We are thankful for the level of health care we have access to right here in Queens. We are very fortunate to be blessed with some of the best doctors anywhere in the country, let alone New York City. We are, of course, concerned, because there is a great deal of speculation as to how the potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) will affect our medical professionals and institutions. No matter how the politics of it play out, the bottom line is that no matter how, what, when, or where – we have the best medical professionals and facilities.

The proof is Mount Sinai Queens, which has been rebuilt into a brand new, state of the art hospital, poised to meet and exceed any and all challenges with the latest medical advances of the 21st century. You could not find a better facility, with better doctors, anywhere. With its $175 million expansion, there are no half-measures in MSQ’s ambitious project to offer the best, most cutting-edge care that exists, namely the recently unveiled Stavros Niarchos Foundation Emergency Department (at Crescent Street and 30th Road); and the new Outpatient Imaging Center; a new multi-specialty physician practice called Mount Sinai Doctors, Queens; new, expanded operating rooms; and new Interventional Radiology Suite. MSQ currently has a team of almost 500 physicians representing close to 40 specialties; primary care; occupational, speech and physical therapies; cancer care; a dedicated cardiac and critical care resuscitation room; bariatric- and dialysis-capable rooms, radiologic testing, and a State Department of Health-certified Stroke Center, to name just some areas of expertise.

We are privileged to have such excellent care within reach, and this Medical Edition will highlight some of the best, right here in this issue.
