St. John’s Medical Group is enhancing its outpatient medical service offerings by opening its new medical practice at 105-38 Rockaway Beach Blvd. in Rockaway Park. Patients and community members will have access to high-quality medical care in a modern setting equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
The new medical practice will open in three phases: Services available in phase 1 as of Dec. 3 are adult and pediatric dermatology, adult endocrinology, behavioral health, and primary care. Breast surgery will be available in January 2021.
Phase 2 services to be added in spring 2021 are cardiology, general surgery, neurology, additional primary care, and vascular surgery. The Margaret O. Carpenter Women’s Health Center will open in fall 2021 as a part of phase 3 and feature 3D mammography, behavioral health, breast surgery, gynecology/oncology, imaging, maternal fetal medicine, nutrition, OB-GYN, and urogynecology.
Joining the medical practice this December are primary care clinicians Dr. Vladislav Chernyshenko, Dr. Yating Lee, and Nurse Practitioner Victoria Backus; pediatric and adult dermatologist Dr. Louis Siegel; adult endocrinologist Dr. Sophia Galustian; and Social Worker Jamie Svenson. Breast surgeon Dr. Sharon Koehler joins the practice in January. Additional clinicians will join the practice in Spring and Fall of 2021.
“We recognize that access to medical services is a prime concern for the communities we serve and that is why we are opening new offices and providing various services outside of the hospital,” said Rosemary Bonilla, MBA, CMPE, Vice President of Physician Practices and Ambulatory Care. “Our patients deserve excellent medical care close to home.”
The new Rockaway Park office will open on Dec. 3.
