Manhattan's Physician Group Opens
New Practice in Harlem
On August 1, Manhattan's Physician Group (MPG), with which EmblemHealth has had a long-standing relationship, opened the state-of-the-art, multi-specialty medical practice at 215 West 125 Street in Harlem. This practice will provide coordinated care, increased access and convenience for the Harlem community.
A Wide Range of Medical Services Under One Roof
MPG recently received Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition at Level 3, the highest level, for six of its practices in Manhattan from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). Under a patient-centered medical home model, patients actively participate in their own care, and treatment is coordinated through a primary care physician. Also, patients can receive a wide range of medical services under one roof, including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OB-GYN, gastroenterology, infectious disease and nutrition.
Providing On-Site Patient Support
EmblemHealth provides "point-of-care" support to patients in the Harlem MPG facility. On-site specialists are available to help patients follow their course of treatment, find quality home care and take advantage of community resources available to them. This type of support can help reduce the need for hospital readmission after discharge and improve health outcomes and member satisfaction.
