Maimonides Medical Center opened a new two-floor, 5,5000-square-foot care center in order to turn their attention on caring for children.
The new Bay Parkway Multi-Specialty Pediatric Center is located at 6701 Bay Parkway. It has 12 examination rooms and is open five days a week, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
“Our goal is to accommodate children and their families in a comfortable, supportive environment to relieve anxiety and optimize healing,” said Dr. Danielle Laraque, Pediatrics Chairman at Maimonides Medical Center. “The open, bright and airy offices in this new location have a playful aquatic theme that mimics the aquariums found at the Maimonides Infants and Children’s Hospital.”
The pediatric center’s services include a variety of medical services such as neurology, endocrinology, gastroenterology and more. Medical officials hope that in the near future, services will also include pediatric surgery, genetics and others. Further, they hope to remain open nights and weekends to accommodate the needs of the neighborhood.
The specific needs of the location also prompted officials to ensure that the various languages of the neighborhood are considered such as Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Urdu, and Bengali.
