New $1M Primary Care Practice Opens in Monroe

MONROE – Northwell Health opened a new medical practice earlier this month, continuing its mission to expand access, inclusion and coordinated care to a diverse population. The 2,000 square-foot Monroe facility will initially be dedicated to an essential part of health care today, primary care for ages 18 and older. The site is located at 412 N. Main Street, Monroe, NY.

Northwell Health has invested nearly $1 million in the space, which will include a full-time primary care physician, an advanced clinical practitioner and three staff members.
The facility has three exam rooms, X-ray imaging capabilities, and will offer recommended preventive services, such as annual check-ups, flu shots, and management of conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

“With this opening, Northwell continues the ongoing expansion of delivering high-quality medical care in Orange, Rockland, Westchester and surrounding areas,” said Michael J. Dowling, chief executive officer and president, Northwell Health. “It reaffirms our commitment to providing access to critical primary care services to the neighborhoods in which our patients live and work.”

Earlier this year, the National Association of Community Health Centers issued a report indicating that approximately one third of our country’s population does not have access to a primary care provider.

Additionally, the Healthy People 2030 report from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion points to the importance of primary care in preventing serious illness or death. The report revealed that access to primary care provides early detection and treatment of disease and the management of chronic diseases.

Besides opening the Monroe practice, Northwell recently launched multi-specialty facilities in White Plains, Yonkers and nearby Nanuet.
