Queens-Long Island Medical Group, now part of AdvantageCare Physicians, reopened its medical office in Far Rockaway last week, six months after flooding from Superstorm Sandy damaged the building.
In the year before Sandy, more than 9,000 patients used the office, located at 29-15 Far Rockaway Blvd. Each of these patients has been notified of the office reopening, and new patients are now being accepted. The Far Rockaway office offers full-service primary care for adults and children. As the community continues to recover, QLIMG has made it a foremost priority to reopen the medical office, thereby ensuring that families have access to high quality medical care right in their community.
“It is our privilege to be back and ready to see patients. Our medical group has been part of Far Rockaway for many years. We are happy to serve them again,” said William Gillespie, M.D., EmblemHealth chief medical officer who also serves as president and CEO of AdvantageCare Physicians.
Since Sandy, Rockaway-area patients have been seen in other nearby QLIMG offices or by an area physician.
