The opening this year of Mount Sinai Doctors Brooklyn Heights brings coordinated, efficient and quality outpatient medical care to the borough for the very first time. Medical care at this office, located at 300 Cadman Plaza West (One Pierrepoint Plaza) on the 17th and 18th floors, is community-based and convenient. I am the medical director of what our patients have been referring to as “medical services under one roof” or a “medical mall”. I’m also the medical director of WESTMED Practice Partners, a company that builds and manages large centers like this for comprehensive outpatient care.
At our large and welcoming facility, with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and panoramic vistas of the Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline, 30 doctors provide the highest quality of primary and specialty care. The office also includes diagnostic imaging and a walk-in Urgent Care Center with extended hours every day.
The practice uses electronic medical records and a state-of-the-art integrated model that expedites communication with all those involved in your medical care among primary care physicians, specialists and radiology services. Essentially, it’s a faster route to diagnosis and expert team treatment. The instant access to your up-to-date medical records allows physicians to focus on you and understand your needs. When you leave, your records are updated accordingly.
To transition to this proven model of quality medical care, start with a primary care provider. With this physician heading up your healthcare team, you are in the best position to get answers to questions you have regarding you and your family’s health, treatment and medications. He/she will coordinate your care with our array of on-site specialists.
It’s been shown that patients with primary care physicians are more satisfied with their care, more likely to consistently get the check-ups they need, to have better management of chronic diseases and to encounter fewer hospitalizations. We use our advanced systems, analytics and a full-service approach for both preventive care and management of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.
When you need inpatient care, the physicians at Mount Sinai Doctors Brooklyn Heights will ensure that all inpatient needs are met in a coordinated fashion-–at a local or affiliated hospital or at the main Mount Sinai campus.
It’s time to discover Mount Sinai Doctors Brooklyn Heights, a rapidly growing outpatient facility that brings all the benefits of a quality, accessible and efficient medical practice without a hospital bureaucracy. This model, ultimately, helps to achieve the “Triple Aim” objectives for health care: increased patient satisfaction, improved health and reduced medical costs.
