NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Brooklyn joined the Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood Alliance to celebrate the grand opening of 38 Sixth Avenue, just steps from the Barclays Center.
The medical office will offer primary care and specialty services including orthopedic, podiatry, neurosurgery, physical medicine, rehabilitation and urology.
A team of specialists, including those from Weill Cornell Medicine and Brooklyn Methodist Hospital will help provide on-site procedures and access to services.
“With this beautiful new facility, patients in this part of Brooklyn have incomparable care right at their doorstep,” said Dr. Steven Silber, chief medical officer at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. “Combining outstanding care with unmatched convenience is our goal in opening NYP Medical Group Brooklyn locations throughout the borough.”
The new office fulfills one aspect of the 2005 Atlantic Yards Community Benefits Agreement. The Downtown Brooklyn Neighborhood Alliance negotiated with the Atlantic Yards developer to have a community health facility in the area.
“This health care facility represents what can happen when developers, health and social services and community-based organizations work together,” said Reverend Dr. Herbert Daughtry, founding chair of DBNA and minister of The House of the Lord Churches. “Everybody wins.”
