About the Center for Community Health
The rate of avoidable hospitalizations among adults in Brooklyn is higher than the citywide rate, according to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Having access to comprehensive, quality health care is essential for preventing and managing disease, and reducing preventable illnesses, injuries, and hospitalizations. To that end, NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital set out to create the Center for Community Health.
Building on NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist’s excellent outpatient services, the Center for Community Health will be a beacon of care in New York’s most populous borough. Outfitted with exceptional design and the latest cutting-edge technology, the Center will be a warm, wellness-focused environment that will reduce wait times for patients and increase our capacity to serve those who come through our doors.
Staffed with world-class experts in numerous specialties, the Center for Community Health will provide the highest quality, patient-centered care. The patients treated in this facility will have access to a wide selection of innovative outpatient services in one location, enabling them to spend less time in the hospital and more time living their lives. Along with reducing wait times and providing comprehensive support for families, the 400,000 square-foot Center will be the largest ambulatory care facility in Brooklyn.
Located in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood, the Center offers a range of programs including:
- Ambulatory Surgery
- Breast Center
- Comprehensive Cancer Center
- Gastroenterology and Endoscopy
- Pre-Anesthesia Evaluation Center
- Diagnostic Imaging Center
- Multi-Specialty Medical and Surgical Practices
- Women’s Health Center and Reproductive Medicine
The facility will also have a valet-staffed parking facility, grab-and-go café, comfortable waiting lounges, and staff dedicated to helping patients and visitors navigate the building. For added convenience, there will be electronic check-in available at kiosks in the Lobby.
