With much fanfare in 1998, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center opened the doors to the MediSys Family Medicine Center in Richmond Hill, located at 133-03 Jamaica Avenue and home to the Family Medicine program. Present at the ribbon cutting was the staff of the center and members of the hospital’s administration. Also joining them at this momentous occasion was Dr. David Satcher, the former Surgeon General of the United States.
The staff at this modern facility treats over 24,000 patients each year and the site offers 33 exam rooms, four procedure rooms and four family rooms. Some of the services offered at MediSys Richmond Hill are: primary care, cardiology, gastroenterology, podiatry, dermatology, allergy, nutrition, osteopathic manipulative treatment, sports medicine, palliative care and integrative health.
Dr. Radeeb Akhtar, an Attending Physician at the Family Medicine Center shares why he enjoys being at the center for the past four years is because “it is an excellent team, providing high quality primary care for a wonderful culturally rich patient population”. Rovina Rabindranauth has been a Patient Care Representative for six years and she states that “working with people from different cultures and helping them to get excellent medical care” is what she values about this center. Stephanie Kearney who has been an Ambulatory Care Representative at the center for 12 years explains that “the staff at this center works together as a team and always puts patients first”.
The hours of operation are Monday to Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM and Saturday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The site offers parking for patients in the rear of the building and is also accessible by public transportation (buses Q56, Q24, and the E train).
