Nassau County and NYS Open $19 Million Medical Center for Seniors, Women & Children

Mineola, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) President/CEO Dr. Vic Politi joined with other elected officials at a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony on Tuesday, October 4, for a $19 million, 38,000 square foot Primary Medical Care Center.  The state-of-the-art facility is expected to serve over 300,000 residents a year.  It will be open to everyone, as well as those that cannot afford the cost of medical care.  The Center will reduce unnecessary emergency room visits.  The over use of the Emergency Department in the United States is responsible for over $38 billion of wasteful spending a year.

“It is an honor to join everyone as we announce the opening of this facility, which will further advance medical services for residents of Nassau County,” said County Executive Mangano. “This new Primary Care Center is focused on putting patients first—with dedicated teams of physicians delivering quality care to both children and adults. I’d like to thank Senator Hannon for helping to secure the funds needed to build this facility and serve our community.”
