Islandia, NY (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
As part of its strategy to expand women’s healthcare services in Suffolk County, the North Shore-LIJ Health System today announced the opening of its new $3.5 million, 17,000 square-foot Contemporary Women’s Care (CWC) facility in Islandia, which specializes in obstetrics and gynecology.
Led by Drs.Brian McKenna Gloria Escamilla, Joyce Rubin Vanessa Soviero, the CWC cares for more than 30,000 patients and delivers more than 400 babies each year. Women seen at the CWC will have their babies delivered at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore.
At a special ribbon-cutting ceremony, Michael Dowling, president and chief executive officer of North Shore-LIJ said, “The new Contemporary Women’s Center exemplifies the health system’s commitment to providing a collaborative approach to women’s healthcare in Suffolk County.” As part of that approach, North Shore-LIJ recently expanded its fertility services to Hauppauge, opening a satellite office of its Manhasset-based Center for Human Reproduction. The fertility practice, headed by Gabriel San Roman, MD, will be relocated later this year to a state-of-the-art facility in Smithtown. In addition, the North Shore-LIJ has also invested in the Bohlsen’s Women’s Imaging Center in Islip, offering a full range of breast imaging services, including 3D mammography, among other initiatives.
The CWC provides comprehensive Ob/Gyn care to women of all ages offering the latest medical equipment and advanced technology, including two procedure rooms, ultrasound suites and lab testing. This allows physicians to perform many gynecological procedures on an outpatient basis, avoiding the need for women to go to the hospital for minor procedures.
“Our team of physicians, nurse practitioners and other healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing progressive, service-oriented care to meet the needs of women at every stage in their lives,” said Dr. McKenna. “As part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, we can provide our patients with world-class consultation and ensure a continuity of care unparalled on Long Island.”
The Contemporary Women’s Care facility is located at 3001 Expressway Drive North, Suite 116, Islandia, NY 11749. For more information, please call 631-CWC-NSHS, or 631-292-6747.
