WESTMED Medical Group has opened a new, full-service office at 171 Huguenot Street in the heart of downtown New Rochelle, near New Roc City.
“We are looking forward to bringing our trademark patient-centered care with a focus on measured quality to one of Westchester’s most active and vital cities, “ said Dr. Simeon Schwartz, President and CEO of the WESTMED Medical Group. “This location will offer the full spectrum of outpatient services just as we have at our other large offices in White Plains, Rye and Yonkers.”
This newest WESTMED location is a 28,000-square-foot, one-story office close to Trump Tower and the New York Sports Club.
WESTMED’s Medical Director Dr. Barney Newman said, “Our office will house approximately 20 doctors, including internal medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, and medical and surgical specialties, such as cardiology, orthopedics, general surgery/bariatric surgery. There will also be a state-of-the-art clinical laboratory, and a radiology department, where routine radiology exams, ultrasound and bone density testing will be performed, and a walk-in urgent care center.”
This medical office model, often referred to as a “polyclinic”, offers the convenience of one-stop healthcare under one roof.
Primary care physicians in the office on March 7 will be:
• Dr. Erica Krauss, internist, relocating from her WESTMED office in Pelham Manor
• Dr. Gus Michael, internist, from his office at 175 Memorial Highway in New Rochelle.
Pediatricians in place on March 7 will be Drs. Lon Easton, Ronald London, Monica Rieckhoff and Fara Vitale, who are moving from their offices at 3594 East Tremont Ave., in the Bronx.
Moving in on April 1 will be Barbara Katzeff, MD, internist, from her office at 140 Lockwood Avenue, New Rochelle.
April 1 is also the anticipated opening date for the Radiology Department and the urgent care center, offering medical care seven days a week.
Prior to the end of April, Dr. Rebecca Kleban, an OB/GYN, will come aboard with Donna Field, a certified nurse midwife.
