Steve Okhravi, MD, Founder/CEO/Medical Director of the Tribeca Emergency Medical Care center in New York discusses how his stand-alone center offers much faster treatments than ER's affiliated with in-patient hospitals, and also reduces cost to the system. His urgent care center admits patients to in-patient hospitals only 1% of the time, compared to 25% of cases seen in traditional ERs. He also explains how they order far fewer tests and imaging studies.

Emergency Medical Care recognizes the benefits of multiple locations in it's efforts to bring stand-alone ER services to select NYC communities that simply want a more accessible care environment for their ER needs. Having started, and succeeded in our first location in Tribeca, our studies showed us that the West 42nd Street area was the next location to establish an out post. In a prime street-level retail location situated a 521 West 42nd Street, we've found a welcome new home from which to provide our much needed and promptly delivered Urgent Care services.

EMC's brightly illuminated location is convenient from all area transportation hubs and also provides easy access to support services in the immediate vicinity. Construction began in early May 2012; Completion and Grand Opening in August 2012. Please do stop in to one of our offices and say hello. We'd welcome the opportunity to have you tour our facility. So, you'll have a trusted resource and be prepared in the event of an emergency at some point in the future.
3/12/2012: EMC fosters provider-of-record associations in key industry categories.
Emergency Medical Care has built close relationships with NYC-based groups such as prominent international affairs organizations, a high-profile lower Manhattan University, a well-respected commercial construction firm and a well-known food service leader...to name just a few. These firms benefit from maintaining their anonymity as it relates to strategic alliances with healthcare providers. However, should you be recruiting for a medical partner for your firm, we'd be happy to share the specific group names and related key reference contacts from each entity...on a one-on-one needs basis.
