NYC Health + Hospitals/Gotham Health and the NYC Department of Design and Construction (DDC) have opened the second of three COVID-19 Centers of Excellence in New York City. The COVID-19 Centers of Excellence were designed under emergency construction rules allowed during the pandemic.
Located in the Queens borough, the new community health clinic joins a similar facility that opened in November 2020 in The Bronx. The third site, in Brooklyn, is scheduled to open in spring 2021.
The three facilities are designed to meet the needs of patients recovering from COVID-19, including specialized services such as pulmonary and cardiology care, radiology and diagnostic services, and mental health services. The clinics also offer primary care for additional health conditions, including cancer screenings, dental and vision care, diabetes management, podiatry, adult medicine, and pediatrics.
