Metro Urgicare Grand Opening

Metro UrgiCare Celebrates the Grand Opening of its new Urgent Care Location in the Bronx

Bronx, NY (October 22, 2015)— Metro Urgicare, a rapidly growing urgent care practice in the Bronx, recently celebrated the grand opening of its newest location at 3200 Grand Concourse on Wednesday, October 21st. Metro Urgicare was joined by New York State Senator Gustavo Rivera and Assemblyman Victor Pichardo to celebrate the grand opening.

Urgent care centers are equipped to provide rapid and responsive healthcare for patients experiencing episodic illnesses. According to the Urgent Care Association of America, 90% of urgent care centers have a wait time of 30 minutes or less to see a provider with an astounding 84% projecting total patient throughput to under 60 minutes. Metro Urgicare’s efficient top quality urgent care locations provide the same effective care statistically proven to improve community health and alleviate emergency room congestion.

Metro Urgicare’s first urgent care location at 1550 University Ave. continues to gain tremendous popularity in the local area. “Metro Urgicare’s accessible locations provide a great alternative for those community members who require immediate medical attention but are not suffering from life threatening illnesses. Metro Urgicare accepts most insurances including Medicaid and Medicare and can help to avoid unnecessary trips to overcrowded Emergency Rooms,” says Metro Urgicare Administrator Mark Hirschhorn.

Founded by Essen Medical Associates’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sumir Sahgal, Metro Urgicare delivers after hours services Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 9:00PM and 9:00AM-5:00PM on weekends. Metro Urgicare provides patients with a larger window of opportunity to seek quality care. With offices open 7 days a week and with extended hours, Metro UrgiCare saves emergency rooms time and resources that could otherwise be allocated toward life-threatening situations.

The opening of this new location is crucial to the health and integrity of the Bronx community and will allow Metro Urgicare to broaden its service radius to those most in need of quality urgent care.
