NYU Langone Medical Center has acquired Huntington Medical Group, one of the largest practices of its kind on Long Island, in a move that keeps step with the changing healthcare environment from hospital-based to local ambulatory care.
The Huntington practice has been a prominent fixture since the 1950s. The practice is open 365 days a year, sees approximately 1,000 patients each day, and is known for offering patients comprehensive, personalized healthcare services under one unified system. According to the practice’s medical director, Raman Bhasin, this model will not change as a result of the partnership with NYU Langone; it will only be strengthened and further enhanced.
“We chose to work with NYU Langone because our physicians work well together and complement each other,” said Dr. Bhasin. “By partnering with a world class academic medical center, we believe we will be able to offer our patients access to additional medical expertise as well as state-of-the-art methods of diagnosis and treatment in a cost effective manner.”
Patients at both NYU Langone Huntington locations, Huntington Station and Commack, will have enhanced access to NYU Langone’s vast range of highly specialized tertiary and quaternary medical and surgical care at its Manhattan hospital campuses and throughout NYU Langone’s expanding network of ambulatory facilities. In addition, patients will now have access to clinical and research experts at NYU Langone for cases that require more complex care or services. NYU Langone Huntington patients who come to NYU Langone for complex care will receive convenient follow-up care at NYU Langone Huntington.
NYU Langone Huntington currently offers virtually every specialty under one roof, including cardiology, dermatology, ENT, family practice, gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, internal medicine, nephrology, neurology, OB/GYN, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, sports medicine, pain management, pediatrics, podiatry, psychology, pulmonology, radiology, surgery, and urology. In the future, NYU Langone Huntington plans to add cardiothoracic surgery, electrophysiology, and cancer treatment services.
