NYU Langone Health recently opened its multispecialty outpatient center NYU Langone Ambulatory Care East Meadow, on Front Street in East Meadow, where it offers neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and physical therapy, in addition to imaging and a variety of subspecialty services.
Due to the limited availability of medical office real estate on Long Island, health systems like NYU Langone have been converting former retail spaces into high-quality medical care facilities. The new East Meadow ambulatory center was built at the location of a renovated supermarket that was vacated in 2016.
“This new center brings together multiple practices from the region into one centralized location, making it more convenient for patients,” said Andrew Rubin, the senior vice president for Clinical Affairs and Ambulatory Care at NYU Langone. “Multispecialty centers also foster collaboration among providers, enhancing their ability to provide individualized care.”
The ambulatory center’s multidisciplinary medical team includes 30 board-certified physicians who specialize in epilepsy, foot and ankle surgery, general neurology and clinical trials, general and pediatric orthopedic surgery, hand and wrist surgery, headache, migraine and concussion, hip and knee reconstruction, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular disorders, neurosurgery, orthopedic oncology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, spine surgery, sports medicine and stroke. They also specialize in physical therapy through NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation.
The center’s on-site services include X-ray, MRI, and electromyography. A dedicated social worker at the center connects neurology and neurosurgery patients to support services.
Surgical procedures and advanced diagnostic testing are performed nearby at NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola and the NYU Winthrop Hospital Ambulatory Surgery Center at Garden City, enabling patients to receive integrated, world-class care close to home.
The nearly 50,000 square-foot outpatient care center has 60 exam rooms, providing the capacity to care for more than 350 patients daily. The interior has high ceilings and natural light, allowing for “a warm and beautiful environment designed to create a calming patient-centered experience,” said Vicki Match Suna, the executive vice president and vice dean for Real Estate Development and Facilities at NYU Langone.
The former supermarket had an open floor plan that allowed NYU Langone to prioritize patient experience when designing the interior of the ambulatory center. For example, patients being treated for foot and ankle injuries who may have difficulty walking will receive treatment toward the entrance of the building. The center also offers complimentary valet parking on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The physical therapy gym spans 8,500 square feet and features a sports performance turf and newly developed therapeutic equipment like the AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill, which includes computer-based video motion analysis. Physical therapists are available Monday to Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The practice is open for orthopedic appointments Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and for neurology and neurosurgery appointments Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
