Most of you have seen or even visited our newest addition to ‘the avenue,’ ModernMD Urgent Care. It is a pleasure to welcome them to the BID, as residents of Woodhaven have been requesting a walk-in medical location in the neighborhood, for some time now. While we have several medical practices on the avenue, they are all on appointment basis, which does not give flexibility for many of us who work or have medical emergencies that need tending to.
ModernMD is a network of seven urgent care centers in Brooklyn & Queens and their mission is to equalize access to medical care in neighborhoods that have historically gone without access to walk-in care or have too few providers for the amount of people in an area. Urgent care is designed to make every day medical care possible, if you do not have a primary care doctor or do but cannot get an appointment that works for you. At urgent care centers like ModernMD, there is no need to schedule weeks in advance or take off work, as they offer quick & convenient treatment, 7 days a week no appointment necessary.
ModernMD offers treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and everyday illnesses. All of their locations (including their Woodhaven center located at 89-22 Jamaica Ave. on the corner of 89th Street) offer onsite lab, onsite x-ray, diagnostic testing, pediatrics, and lab services. Additionally, ModernMD accepts a wide range of insurances including Medicaid & Medicare, making their centers a quicker and more budget friendly option than visiting the Emergency Room, for everyday healthcare needs.
Outside of the medical care they provide, ModernMD prides itself on its dedication to service and passion. They make an effort to truly integrate in the communities they serve by getting to know community-based organizations and local government officials. In making these connections, they work to support community-valued initiatives and hire locally to provide jobs to residents, boosting the local economy.
Melissa Cohen, Vice President of Marketing and Business Growth at ModernMD, notes that the ModernMD team is excited to join the Woodhaven community and looks forward to becoming a local resource! If you have questions on how ModernMD can meet your medical needs, feel free to stop by their Jamaica Ave center (located at 8922 Jamaica Ave on the corner of 89th Street), give them a call at 646.604.8170 or visit them online at ModernMDuc.com.
