NYU Langone’s Outpatient Center Opens at Essex Crossing

Posted on: July 6th, 2018 at 5:04 am by

Right on schedule, the phased opening of NYU Langone’s new outpatient outpost at Essex Crossing (171 Delancey) is well underway. Dubbed the Joan H. and Preston Robert Tisch Center, the three level, 55,000 square-foot facility is slowly rolling out its services to “one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods.” It’s a welcomed arrival for some, as this area has been referred to as noticeably lacking in health care services.

As of Monday, the multifaceted center at Site 6 has been scheduling appointments with specialists in addiction medicine, cardiology, foot and ankle care, orthopedics, pain medicine, podiatry, primary care, and sports medicine. The facility affirmed that it’s capable of assisting 300 patients per day, in more than 30 exam rooms, not to mention four designated operating rooms for orthopedic surgeries. In addition, there’s a foot and ankle care center, as well as a women’s sports medicine center all housed within the premises.

The Tisch Center will offer a centralized location for on-site diagnostic services – a one stop shop for things like blood work, X-rays, EKGs, etc. A convenient perk, not having to find a satellite location for whatever tests are requested by a practitioner.

“We’re thrilled to bring this new, comprehensive network of clinical services to the Lower East Side, one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods, but one with many pressing needs for access to the highest quality medical care,” said Andrew Rubin, vice president for clinical affairs and ambulatory care at NYU Langone Health. “We always look at where our patients live and work, and this location provides a convenient alternative not only in the immediate area, but also for those located in the Financial District and Williamsburg.”

Future plans for the facility entail spinal surgery and rheumatology services to be rolled out in August, and endocrinology and physical medicine and rehab services in the fall, with an outpatient orthopedic surgical suite at a later date. Additional specialties, including gynecology, ENT, and plastic surgery, will be introduced when the center becomes fully operational.
