March 6, 2017, Bronx, NY – Metro UrgiCare announced the upcoming grand opening of its newest Bronx
location at 2720 White Plains Road, Bronx, NY, 10467. To mark the occasion, Metro UrgiCare will be hosting
special guests, community‐based organizations, health champions, and community leaders for a celebration
from 12:00PM‐2PM on Wednesday, March 15, 2017. On hand to cut the ceremonious ribbon will be Bronx
Borough President, Ruben Diaz, Jr.
The 2720 White Plains Road location will be the 6th facility opening since Metro UrgiCare opened its doors in
the Bronx in 2015. The center provides care for patients of all ages, offering urgent care, employer health
services, and basic wellness and prevention services. Metro UrgiCare locations are specially designed to increase
access to medical care and to expedite the treatment of ailments that, although not life‐threatening, simply
cannot wait. Walk‐in treatment is available for everyday illness and injury, including more advanced services
such as IVs, labs, stitches and treatment for broken bones, sprains and strains. For greater patient convenience,
pre‐registration and appointments can also be made via mobile app. Local employers can use Metro UrgiCare
for employer health services including workers’ compensation, injury care, pre‐ and ongoing employment
screenings, physicals and regulatory exams. Basic wellness and prevention services include sports physicals,
routine physicals, and immunizations.
“Access to urgent care is an integral component of our approach to holistic patient‐centered care. Our mission is
to provide the best care for our patients and to provide services that help foster a healthy community,” said Dr.
Sumir Sahgal, President and Chief Medical Officer. “Everything about our Metro UrgiCare centers is focused on
our patients – from weekend and extended hours to conveniently located state‐of‐the‐art facilities ‐ we are truly
dedicated to providing high‐quality care when patients need it the most.” Caring for some of the poorest and
sickest populations in the Bronx since 1999, through Metro UrgiCare’s parent company Essen Health Care, Dr.
Sahgal recognized the growing evidence of the benefits of urgent care services and knew that offering the
service was the right thing to do for patients and the community as a whole. Current and future expansion plans
include locations where timely access to care is difficult to find. Metro UrgiCare will continue to expand
throughout the Bronx and New York City area with a total of 10 facilities opening in 2017.
