RYE BROOK—The continued growth of the health care sector continues in Westchester County. A host of local dignitaries, including Westchester County Executive George Latimer, were on hand on Monday for the ribbon cutting of the new Northeast Medical Group Multispecialty Center here.
The ribbon cutting event for the new remodeled 15,000-square-foot outpatient facility at 90 South Ridge St. was hosted by Yale New Haven Health Northeast Medical Group in collaboration with Greenwich Hospital.
Approximately 60 people attended the event. The new Rye Brook facility now offers a variety of services including pediatrics, primary care and walk-in with x-ray imaging. Additional specialty care services will include cardiology, pediatric urology, rheumatology, podiatry and sleep medicine. Lab services will be provided by Greenwich Hospital.
“We are excited to expand our current array of services in Rye Brook. Our goal is to bring outpatient services to the community, which enables area residents to access high-quality medical care close to home,” said Dr. Prathibha Varkey, MBBS, president and chief executive officer for NEMG. “We have more than 880 clinicians serving Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island. We are proud that our physicians are consistently rated high in patient satisfaction, and many are recognized as Top Doctors in the state.”
Norman G. Roth, Greenwich Hospital president and chief executive officer, said patients will receive the same quality care in Rye Brook that has become the hospital’s hallmark. Fifty-three percent of Greenwich Hospital’s patients reside in New York State.
“We are focused on creating a superior patient experience, which results in a more engaged patient and better outcomes,” Roth said. “We want to bring our high level of care to Westchester and provide care that will keep our communities healthy and thriving.” Greenwich Hospital has been part of the Westchester community for years, providing community health programs and wellness programs in Rye Brook, Rye and Port Chester.
Elected officials attending Monday’s event included George Latimer, Westchester County executive; Nancy Barr, Westchester County legislator; Susan Epstein, Trustee, Rye Brook Village Board; and Steven Otis, New York Assembly. Also present were Rye Brook community leaders Christopher Bradbury, Rye Brook Village Administrator and Gregg Howells, Rye YMCA executive director.
