Northwell Health opens COVID-19 outpatient facility in Lawrence
Northwell Health announced it has opened a temporary outpatient care facility to serve ambulatory, low-acuity and recovering COVID-19 patients to help address the needs of communities in southwest Nassau County and southeast Queens.
In anticipation of the impact COVID-19 may have locally, the community organized to raise donations and outfit the facility to provide care in the event it was needed, inviting Northwell to participate.
The facility, located on the grounds of the Sh'or Yoshuv Rabbinical College in Lawrence, will initially serve as an assessment center for those in the community with symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
Officials say if needed, the facility is prepared to transition at a future date into a 24/7 operation to provide observation.
The site will be staffed by Northwell Health physicians and clinical volunteers recruited by Hatzolah Air, a nonprofit emergency response service. The site will be managed by Northwell.
Just as visitation is restricted at area hospitals to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, patients to the Lawrence site will need to be unaccompanied.
The Lawrence facility is located at 1 Cedar Lawn Ave., and will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
For more information or to make an appointment, call (718) 316-6868.
